I always post pictures :P
We'll see what happens. Burning out a Godspeed Is better then an EFR, Garrett bb, or building a turbo setup then selling it.

I appreciate your intentions Vlad, I understand what you mean.

I have no intention of running this as the final setup. Just waiting for good turbo to come around to hit 300-350 with. Maybe after time when things look better I'll continue the EFR sexiness after assorted things.

I don't think he's all that disappointed about the turbo. More like the manifold. Many (including him) ran churbos to good (if laggy) effect.

A little update:
I hate hawk blues brake dust + rpf1s:


Here's a little project I've been working/helping with.
A buddies AE86 swapping in a 4AZE (stupidcharged mr2 engine) this guy is pretty much car/mechanically illiterate so, me and my buddy with the turbo IS300 have been doing all the work.

Powered by! That's right!

Megasquirt.

The IS300/2jz friend I talk about. Those motors are a pain in the ***.

Lime away and some elbow grease will take care of that. The question you should be asking is "Why on earth am I DDing on Hawk Blues?!"

I drive/live in Florida.

Here's the best update:
I have finally ordered:
Boss frog clearview roll bar, v8roadsters cowl braces, LC-2 DB wideband to finally replace my prosport one, a center console gauge pod (finally no A-pillar pods), will be ordering all my AN fittings/adapters here soon as well, dropping the car off at the paint shop Tuesday for the bumper, my buddy is getting his TIG welder finally, and possible top mount sexiness.

About the wheels:
I tried this awesome stuff called White Diamond and got this far:

Note, this stuff turns that typical shelf cloud **** metal into a mirror by just rubbing it.

Just seems like overkill if you aren't tracking the car. I haven't run them personally, but I've heard they're quite aggressive on the rotor when cold and leave so much metal in the dust that it rusts your wheels (I've heard about this before OP posted a picture). If I'm only using my car on the street I'd rather have a pad that are a bit more civilized and save the money for gas, but hey, that's just my

Hmmmm....I have 6uls with lots of nasty Hawk brake dust caked on them. I wonder if that white diamond stuff would work on mine. Nothing else seems to do anything.

Where can one purchases this magical stuff?

The car is only driven on the street occasionally, two or three days a month. But when it is street driven I spend all day (8-10 hours) in it driving around for work (sales). The Blues don't have any quirks other than dust. They stop just fine when cold. Any of the lesser pads I have tried won't take the heat on the track.

And my rotors are $30, so who cares about wear, which hasn't been a problem yet anyway. I'm on my third set of Blues in the front and my rotors are still fine.

O'Reilly auto parts can order it if they don't already have it in stock.


And here's what it did in 10 seconds.


but yeah, I'm not going to daily on blues anymore. Caking on the wheels, caking on the side if my car. Nope.

This is the side of my car right now:

But note this is the side where when doing the brakes a friend said "oh I did this sides pads already" and never put in the clips. I also only ever noticed how bad it was after using Magnesium wheel cleaner, which they are aluminum.

Next up in this is, Catch can set up, -10an to the custom built box, breather, then -10an to the MSM drain nipple on the intake side. Also meaning another trip to the powdercoater. Yay

Also, LS Truck coils. Bracket to mount to existing MSM COP mounts, the problem is can the LS coils run wasted spark? Or can/how too make my MS2PNP run sequential spark.

I still have no IACV, oscillating AFR signal, which the LC-2 innovate better fix or I'm sending the bill(which was barely more expensive then the prosport[so how are these cheap again?]) to Vlad :P
But off track, how can I fix the burnt component? DIYautotune has seemed to have given up on my case, which the warranty expired :/ awesome

Police report done and report sent to the housing office.
Luckily enough a maintenance guy says he saw who did it and is making a statement so... Who ever it is.
I will find you and I will kill you.

Yea, you're lucky to have a witness.

I had someone/something bash up my DS door and there were no witnesses, no anything. I have liability only so I guess...I get to have a bashed up door now.
