New floormats

Thanks to KD at DMax USA, my street car has been equipped with DMax’s new line of checkered floormats. These are quite an improvement over the first generation floormats both in quality and in appearance. If you care about the looks of your car, do not hesitate to buy a set of these before they sell out!

Digital Climate Control

Today I finally decided to try installing my S13 Digital Climate controller by myself. I’ve been waiting to hire someone to do it for me because it looked super complicated in all of the write ups; having to switch out blowers, heater cores, linkage, tubes etc. just seemed brain melting to me. But after doing some research and calling my buddy Jimmy, it turns out all you need is to hook up a total of 4 wires to get it to work without A/C which I sadly no longer have.

Now, I’ve found a few issues. Half of the lights in the DCC unit don’t work, so it looks like I will go the LED route on that. Another issue is, the blower fan stays on even when the DCC is no longer on, so I guess I’ll have to trouble shoot that as well. So now here I am taking apart my spare DCC faceplate to figure out which bulbs to use. These things are tiny. There are two sitting on the corner of the computer.
