10 superflux LEDs in parallel with a switch...test project for my C30...eventually. Kid likes it, Mom dislikes the $40 investment for when McQueen is sold for larger vehicle. <p>/Volumes/Burris RAID Set 1/b.

Nice Job!<p>I've wanted to do something like that on my son's Mustang, that and replace the motors and batteries so that we can ramp it up a bit.

Re: LED DRLs on McQueen (Shomare)

Yep - next project is the F-150 truck (Fisher Price) he wants when we arrive to our next duty station. Told him he has to sell McQueen to get the truck - gonna pimp the truck out with large LED bulbs, front and rear. You have any idea where to get more powerful electric motors?

I drive with an even heavier foot since installing the Typhoon in my car, I love the way it sounds so I am always letting it rip. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> It sounds soooo nice. Install is a pain from what everyone says, I just had my indie shop guy do it when he was repairing something else.

Re: LED DRLs on McQueen (carreragt7)

It's done. 4.5 hours, a lot of wrestling and wrangling, but it's done. I have one of the "tubes" open - no carbon filter vacuum hose. I saw somewhere in the forum how someone contained it - I gotta search. <br>Started her up and no <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> lights came on...<br>Tomorrow I shall Romp on it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Carreragt7- notice any acceleration gain?

Re: LED DRLs on McQueen (JACB)

I think there is some gain. There are some people on here that say it is all in your mind, that the Typhoon doesn't give any real performance gains, but I think it gives some minor gains, and it definitely sounds much, much better. And the fact that K&N has a guarantee that you will gain HP or you money back should be enough to show people that you are at least gaining a couple horses out of it. K&N is a respected company, and I love my typhoon. I've had it installed for at least 6 months and it runs great and have never had any problems from it. <br>You will like it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
