    Are my sensors good? (will add to main posting) I usually have a front plate on in Ohio, so they can shoot the lights or the plate. Thanks!

    First off Nice Ride , the position looks good but are they towed outwards rather than square to the road ?

    Your Sensors appear to be toed outwards to me, also. They MUST be pointed straight forward (not following the Front body curvature) & "bubble-level" if your garage floor is perfectly level. Additionally, they look to be more than 24" apart,...are they ?

    Everyone - Thanks for the feedback! I adjust them to be facing straight forward and they are exactly 24" apart inner end to inner end. Bubble to Bubble maybe 24.5" - 25".

    REMINDER!!!!!!!!!!

    With a DUAL Front Setup you must use the F1 & F2 ports for the front sensors
    For a 3 Head System you must use F1, F2 & F3 and the F2 port needs to be the center head.

    We tested 12 cars today in NJ and 3 cars were IPT on all VPR guns. I even marked on our data sheet next to their name that they must have the wrong ports being utilized. I even asked if they were sure they used the correct ports and they all said yes. After we keep getting IPT's I asked these guys to come over and show me their wiring and sure enough each was using F1 & F3 on dual systems.

    For VPR protection you NEED 2 heads and both heads need to be in the F1 & F2 port. If using 3 heads the center head needs to be in the F2 port. If you are not sure of your configuration please double check the install and make sure your wiring is correct.

    I want to add a third sensor head to my 2015 tahoe. I already have sensor heads installed at each end in the middle of the grill. The distance from the bubble to the center of the Chevrolet bow-tie is 22". Should I place the third sensor head above or below the chevy bow-tie?

    Right below the Bow-Tie and you will be in good shape. Just make sure when you add the 3rd head that you wire the center head to the F2 port.

    I painted the bowtie a flat black to reduce the target. Can I now put the sensor at the bottom center of the grill to protect the fog lights as targets?

    No place it right below the bow tie as BRD stated you will be well protected--you dont want your 3 sensors very far apart for optimal performance
