    vr4 keeps blowing ignition fuse. HELP

    got the car running yesterday, drove it to the exhaust shop, drove it home.
    Fixed some loose intercooler piping, took it out again. the front side of the maf "blow through gm maf" blew off. reattached that, took it back down the rode. got home checked pipes again. took it back out and I heard it pop off again. open the hood and the throttle body side of the maf slid off. tried to fix it right there, couldn't it kept dieing. so i figured I'd unplug the maf and limp it back home. as soon as i unplug the maf, everything electrical died. I forgot my fuel pump relay gets it's signal from the maf power wire, so i plugged it back in, and everything was still dead. so I check and the 30amp Ignition fuse is blown under the hood. i swap it out, the car turns on, and dies as soon as i let the clutch out it the car dies, swap it again, the fuse blew again so i just towed it home. this morning, i swapped the fuse, the car turned on ran for a couple minutes, i left my phone under the hood, so when i popped it to grab it the car died again. swapped the fuse out again, and the car turns on and dies again after a second or two. i unplugged the maf, and my fuel pump main wire, and it's still shorted. any ideas guys?

    well it turns out it was my halos being hooked up to the big blue wire that goes to the radio plug. it had a 15amp fuse right there, but it still caused that problem...kinda weird, but now this is here for future generations lol
