I'll believe you 100% about getting them back in. I know I have no way to do it myself. So I should contact magnusson and see if they have anything for me. I'm looking to buy the plate with the rotors installed. If it turns out to be too expensive, I'll just put a cover from a cobra on the lightning lower and use it as a short runner intake manifold. That'* why I bought it. The blower was just a bonus, and for $280.00 you can't be too far off.

P.*. Thanks for moving this, Will. I put it in the lounge because it'* not bonneville related.

Well I called High Speed Labs, and Wade(the guy I talked to and seemed to know his stuff, but that may be because I don't.) quoted me ~$300USD. Said he would disassemble the rotor pack(He can put them together too), turn the spindles/journals/whatever you want to call them down and make them into an M90 diameter, then pull the rusty needles out and sleeve it, install M90 bearings into it, and put it together. He wanted to rebuild the snout as well but then we'd be talking ~$525 with bearings etc. I'll call up Magnum Powers and Magnusson(not sure who they are) and try getting a quote on that from them as well. Gotta say I still feel like I get a steal on the whole setup! Thoughts? Comments? P.*. Recoating the rotors would be $100 from HSL, but I think I may want them to be uncoated as I don't need a lot of boost. Those Ford hypereutectic pistons are weak!

Do the bearings in the case and the NoseDrive yourself. Save a ton of money.

I don't really have the tools to do the case. The nose is not going to be touched. When she locks, then I'll touch it. Unless you want to assist with the case I'll let you pull those rusty things out and press a sleeve in that fits M90 spec bearings.

Here ya go, buddy. Ed'* entire site isn't up yet, but there'* an electronic parts request form on the page. See what some used M112 rotors would cost you.

You want the coating. You'll make the boost you want at a lower RPM, so less heat and less drag on the engine.

As I said. Crappy hypereutectic pistons. I thought the Lightnings ran something like 12lbs boost stock. Someone informed me otherwise. I am investigating that right now. If they only run 8lbs, then I WILL get them coated again.



EDIT:

This is the gears for the rotor pack. All I did was drain the oil. Look new don't they?

**EDIT**
Spoke to the boys over at SVT Performance. Looks like Ima be shelling out more money to get them coated. Stock boost is 8psi.
