    So I have the K5 6,000 Lumen CREE LED bulbs in my fogs, about 1 year old. About a week ago I noticed that the fogs would randomly shut off and I would need to "restart" them by flipping the switch off and back on again. Any idea what could be causing this and how to start trouble shooting? Thanks.

    I recently purchased an Uncle Chip from another member here on the forum, and have been waiting to break in the new warranty engine before installing. However, I was wondering, since I'll be creating more boost with the chip, should I go ahead and install an actual blow off valve? I'm currently...
