Default Rotor Coating

In case anyone is planning on peeling their coating.. don't.

The differences I have seen are amazing.

Amount of boost is definately down 2-4 lbs... more amazing is how much of a power difference that little boost has to the engine.

He got a good deal on a whole used SC. That'll leave him a spare nosedrive and a spare housing for porting.

Use a mini die grinder, works about 100,000 times better than a dremel. I used a dremel on one port on my exhaust manifolds, did the other 5 in the same time with a die grinder. I also used a 60 grit ball, and it lasted three times as long as a 60 grit cone.

I'm thinking you might wanna use the Dremel on the SC housing. Doesn;t seem like that much material to remove and it might provide better control. Just my inexperienced butt talking out loud.

Don't use a die-grinder. If you lose control, it'll cause major catastrophe. I used a dremel.
