Re: What did you do to your WK today?

i have 2x of the Borla round mufflers atm. Before i was running the stock SRT muffler which was dual/dual. there's a dual/dual magnaflow with the same dimensions as the 14590 but with a Tru-X perforated core. Not too sure what that means.(xpipe inside the muffler?) but probably be loud so against it

Yup, the x pipe is built into the muffler and it perforated to tone down noise if any thing I, this is my opinion on it, would replace the two borlas at the end with a pair of magnaflow mufflers of approximate size. Magnaflow does a better job of toneing out noise. The x pipe will also reduce noise volume a couple of decibels thru noise cancelation and and bad sound is picke up thru the perforations and canceled out.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Was able to lower idle. Took apart the idle air control valve and cleaned it thoroughly. Noticed that there was an adjustment Allen bolt that also changes the idle of the car. So I have the idle adjustment on the throttle body and also the Iacv. Still can't get it to run perfectly.

I would check all your sensors and plugs/wires/coil and distributor as well. once you rule out everything that effects how the engine runs on the ignition side of things and see if it helps.

a larger suitcase style magnaflow (universal)
Flowmaster Hushpower mufflers
Dynomax super turbo (may get some drone with it, I ran a pair for a week)

there is also solo performance, I don't have experience with them but have heard good things. plus they have a variety of mufflers

Hey y'all, just replaced my side marker lights today. Just want to make it common knowledge that you don't have to remove anything to replace the bulbs, I've read numerous posts regarding the need to remove the grill and bumper cover to gain access to the side markers. There's an access panel on the inner fender skirt that allows access to the bulb and socket. All that is required to gain access is to pull up on the panel to release the two points of contact that keep it latched. Once you have the hatch open you just need to reach through the hole and you'll feel the two wires leading to the side marker, grab the plastic "half pipe" shaped protrusion (it's really the handle for this exact task) and turn it counter clockwise 1/4 turn. That releases the socket and then you can pull the assembly towards the open hatch, it won't have a ton of slack in the wire but enough to get close to the hatch and allow you to replace the bulb. I use LEDs in all my sockets so naturally I replaced these with LEDs as well. Most automotive LED bulbs are polarity sensitive(some high dollar LED bulbs can go either way)so if you use LEDs for this job be sure to function test before reinstallation. The way the side marker is wired into the front turn signal will cause the need to make a decision if you're installing LEDs in the side markers, by that I mean that the LEDs that I have and use can only have electricity "flow" one direction and the side marker circuit isn't a simple pos/neg feed, the "ground" is actually the positive lead of the front indicator flash circuit so when the turn signal is on it's actually breaking the ground of the side marker with every flash, causing it to flash in opposite of the front indicator. The decision you'll need to make with LEDs for side markers is this: do you want them to function when your parking lights are on or off? I always have my lights on when I drive, either parking lamps or headlights, so my decision was an easy one to make. If you install the LEDs in one polarity configuration and then test your turn signals with the lights OFF and they flash, they will NOT illuminate and flash when lights are on and vice versa. My suggestion is to have them illuminated with your parking lamps as they're more effective at night but it's your call. If you have them installed in the polarity config that they are on in conjuncture with your parking lamps, then they will flash with your turn signals and all will be well. I apologize for the long winded and likely confusing write up and explanation, feel free to ask any questions or for clarification as needed.

No, not necessary in this application as the side markers aren't on their own circuit. Since they're tied in to the front indicator circuit, as long as your front is either incandescent or resistor corrected led, the side marker will function properly with LEDs. I did use a warm white led instead of a true white or cool white, the cool white washes out through the amber lens and IMO looks terrible.
