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.

So after my rim exploded and the car dragged the belly across the ground, I noticed a leak. It sounds like a party streamer, of all things. Can't handle it, and today it's only like -2 out so I pulled the header.


(before I cleaned it)



Definitely some broken weld work there

And possibly more on another port

My camera flash made it look nasty, but I spent an hour filing and sanding the inside of the pipe after redoing all the welds to make sure everything is smooth.

That looks like some anti nausea pill I've taken before. Can't recall the name.


But really we know now you're just a hardcore drug smuggler and you're trying to throw us off you're trail by denying culpability

To anyone running a Tanabe STB (possibly other brands too) on a GT, it'll fit just fine over the stock bar. Saw it on Fabguy's build thread and tried it for myself.

Replaced my secondary (rear) muffler (full custom exhaust, don't be confused looking for yours to match mine)

It's got quite a different sound now. The magnaflow was blown, half its guts are missing. I put on a thrush turbo muffler instead. Veeeeery smooth sound. I need to get a video going one day. Right now it's welded on, but not entirely... I had an exam to get to, so it leaks, but with the help of my buddy's welding skills, we'll have that fixed.

I'm still on winter tires in semi-freezing conditions, so haven't pushed it too hard. Once the summers are on and the weather is in the pluses, I'll post my thoughts.

Today I vacuumed and washed the car after a solid layer of salt and dust had settled over the last few weeks. Also removed the floor mats, cargo lid and floor for maximum racecar

Modified my tune a bit... I needed a higher rev limit, and had been doing research for quite some time on safe limits. 7800 seems to be the cap people do unless they change the valve springs, and 8300 is the limit for the rods from what I find.

I didn't need that high, but it was comforting to see. I set mine to 7500, and don't feel a power drop off until 7200, but through 1st and second it has helped with the giddy up.

I lowered the mivec engagement point from 4100 to 3500. It's funny how the sound smooths right out when mivec turns on

And finally, I had to change my idle. When heat soaked my engine was shaking since the 2.5" exhaust. I had emailed Hackish a couple times, but decided to edit it myself. I changed the idle from ~600 to ~700, but I'm gonna raise it to 750. 600 was incredibly rough, however not actually misfiring or knocking. 700 is good in most situations, but after driving hard it still is a bit rough when the intake temperatures rise.

Once I get some cash flow, a wideband is going in. But that's only a small part of the ideas for summer. A clutch, water pump, and timing belt will precede any "for fun" modding

guys guys guys! listen. Today I was going thru my car care stuff and found those little scented trees. The black ones that say BLACK ICE. so freshh...

Well I wanted to put one in my car but I am actually ashamed of them because of the meme so I found the BEST place to put it. So fresh. I took the tree and hung it up in the hatch, letting it hang from the passenger seat release button. Car smells so fresh now, but no lame ass tree to be seen.


Freshhhhh

Today I vacuumed and washed the car after a solid layer of salt and dust had settled over the last few weeks. Also removed the floor mats, cargo lid and floor for maximum racecar

Fuck me your ride is so spotless aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

mines covered in scratches and chips because the previous owner thought this was an off roader. My entire front windshield is pepper in tiny speckles. Makes driving against the sunlight a nightmare.

Are you telling us it's NOT a rally car? The stock suspension suggests otherwise, sir.

Oh, and I took mine mudding before I lowered it. There was a car meet going on beside where I took it, and yeah... I got a lot of looks and had to stop and answer a lot of questions. Like "what the fuck" and "how". Because lift kit bro

Spent my day up near the Ontario boarder getting tuned by Hackish. Great guy, really laid back and quick with a joke. Never felt that I was too much of a bother to him or that the job was rushed in any way. Car made it home without issue, so everything looks kosher.

94 octane tune
Governor raised to 510 km/h
Rev limiter raised to 7200 rpm
Launch control set to ~3500 rpm
Eggs over easy
Steak medium rare

Installed my new summer tires (Continental ExtremeContact DW) and did the coolant bypass today. Once the rain clears and things dry up, I'm going to take her around a few hard corners and see if all those bars and braces were worth it.





Old well worn Falkens

I filled it with gas! Lol

I reset my trip calculator at my last fillup (last friday). I filled it until it clicked off, didn't force any more. I haven't been babying the throttle, but there has been a fair bit of cruise control mixed in.

Here's what my fuel gauge looked like today at 610km.


At 612km, I filled up. Here's how much it took (46.9L)


7.66L/100km
30.69mpg
