    If you're interested I can get a quote, just pay price of shipping and it's yours. It'll likely be around $20-25 to ship, I sold a set of camber plates on here and that was about how much it was to California.

    Won't be able to get around to it until early next month though - I ship it through a cross-border company who forwards it to UPS. They are located in Toronto and I won't be back in town until then

    Can’t figure out my alarm situation for the life of me. The lock/unlock/alarm chimes are all low volume. I’ve changed the hood sensor, and it’s still low. It makes a sound audibly but it’s so quiet you have to literally put your ear on the driver’s side of the front hood.

    Any searches I’ve done come up with some weird ambiguous results. When I engage the alarm by holding the trunk button you can definitely hear it but it’s not blaring loud like I’ve heard before. It sounds pretty quiet for a car alarm.

    I'm sure u just need to replace the siren for the alarm . Is behind the air cabin filter . Not that hard to get too.

    It’s new! Unless it’s defective. I installed it myself. It’s weird I can definitely hear it when I engage the alarm. But it’s for sure quieter than it should be.

    You still think it’s the actual siren itself?

    I’ve done a bump test and it activated the alarm, so the trunk sensor is good.
    Did the front hood sensor test by holding my finger on the button while locking, lifted my finger after 30 sec and it activated the alarm.
    Did the interior motion sensor test with a window rolled down and that activated the alarm too after I waved my hand in it.

    I read somewhere briefly it means something is wrong or the alarm is not properly engaged. Can’t find that thread anymore but it was useless beyond that info anyway. Not sure if that’s even true or not.

    It's damaged or defective. I had a similar issue with a used one and the replacement worked perfect. I read somewhere that they can be damaged being dropped or banged around.

    anyone know any companies that will do vortech/VF supercharger kit tunes for our cars? the VF engineering kit comes with a standard 6psi tune and they stated they cant do any other tunes. I would love to get a tune for that kit at 8-9psi max.
