When I purchased my 2017 453 , I decided to add the complete Lorinser 453 body kit , wheels , suspension and power package . I installed all items myself , when it came to the power pack install , the directions were pretty vague, but Smartmaddness helped me desipher that issue . The only weak link in the install was the splice into the OEM crank sensor wire. The included kit had one of those plastic squeeze clamps that cuts into the plastic of the wires into a metal clip . (My best judgement was to strip and
solder the wires) but I figured that the included joiner was adequate. Fast forward 13 months , started getting a weird feel on the throttle and an occasional pop out of the exhaust .. then last week , very poor response from the throttle and a considerable lack of power .. I put my bypass plug (runs the car on the OEM electronics ) and my car ran fine . So the only logical answer is either a fried Lorinser power pack , bad ground or that weak link for crank sensor . I checked my ground and it was tight and sound , and then I wiggled the plastic connectors the crank sensor wire and the wires felt loose, so I took it off , stripped the wires and soldered them together .. insulated them , reconnected the Lorinser power pack and started it . Took it for a shakedown and was so pleasantly surprised I feel even more power than before ... I think that connector was a bad choice for Lorinser to include in their package . Once again better judgment should of overruled the use of that connnector in such a critical application .
