    • I have been looking into raising the height of the car. The problem I have is that I cannot find anywhere in the LLVT guidelines that covers raising a strut based suspension system except for raised springs. If I only go up by an inch in the suspension mounts at the top and use a 1 inch lift spring then I think I should be as you hopefully won't notice the lifting blocks as they will be out of sight. But if I go higher than I need the correction blocks between the rear trailing arms and the body to achieve correct wheel location, this is where I think I hit a grey area as the WOF guys I have talked to all have varying opinions  on whether they would pas it or not or whether it needs a cert. My thoughts on this is that all the stock factory mounting locations are used so it should be OK, as this is sort of the same in reverse for lowering leaf springs with lowering blocks. But without a concrete yes or no/pass or fail Im not keen to do to much yet height wise.
    • Beauty thanks @philr8 that makes so much more sense  Yeah cheers @Pappu1 have been chatting with him today.   Just need to figure out all my options and then work out a plan with him. Seems to be ok with SD so far. But will confirm 
    • what he said above..   but mate  - again - talk to ur tuner and go by what they say as end of the day only they will need to use it to do the best tune they can and need to be something they are happy with ...
    •   IAT sensor is required for SD tuning   Inlet manifold is the best location, however if this isn't practicable as close to the throttle body as possible is OK
    • Thanks @Pappu1 and @philr8   So if going full SD, where would be the best place to put the temperature sensor (if its needed). If it's not usually needed, will adding one give more accurate readings and a better tune?
