Default Aerocatch and SMG

Iím wanting to put Aerocatch hood pins to my SMG car. As a lot of you know SMG cars have good sensors that wonít allow you to move unless it recognizes the hood. Iíve tried researching and is there a permanent way to remove it that works? Iíve found threads where people have guessed, but not actually done it. And Iíve read you can just stick something in there and tape it down, but is there a better solution?

Thank You

I wonder if you could tie the 2 wires together.

Sounds like youíll need to code them out with ncs expert. Iím learning it now but others here are experts.

How much weight are you shaving with the Aerocatch pins? My guess is theyíll look pretty sweet too.

I dont get it, are you trying to drive without the hood on? Aerocatches shouldn't have anything to do with the sensor.
