You need some backpressure. Stuff a sock into one of the open exhaust ports and you should be good to go lol

How about I drill the valves on 2 of the cylinders, and put a gob of weld in the others. Balance or something. Idk. People say balance is good.

Neat. While they're off and clean is a good time to paint the centers if you want. That way they won't rust. Just don't paint the friction surface

Remember, red paint reduces brake distance by up to 50%. Yellow is a good alternative as well, expect around a 25% brake distance reduction with that. All other colors are purely for show.

Incorrect. After adding hemi orange to my calipers I broke the dyno with all the torque. No added braking power, but lots of brake horsepower

I think i can feel a difference already, the car seems to roll better, these is less grind noise. At first the brakes vibrated the steering a little but I think thats faded out as the get bedded in.

The screw on the old ones was an absolute PAIN. I broke 3 drill bits, one was made of tungston....

I only installed the one rotor today so it can get bedded in well and I need to buy another drill bit and get the other side tomorrow.

Holy shit please don't drive it until you get your other new rotor installed. You're not bedding it in, your destroying it.

So the other rotor was just as bad.

This install was so much easier because I knew exactly what to do and I bought new titanium drill bits, and an extractor bit. So I saved the two screws on the other side and reused one. It worked great.

The car rolls better, the car stops good, has a good "bite" and has no sqweeks or grind noises.


Love IT ! my rear rotors arent damaged like this for some reason.



I do still have an E brake issues. The E brake makes the WORST grinding noise and it works at about 50% capacity. I think the cable is not letting the pads back off like they should. Anyone else have this issue?

Your rears aren't as beat up because they don't perform as much stopping power as the fronts. It's close to a 2:1 ratio front to rear. So the next time you go to change your front rotors will likely be the time you need to change the rears.
