Add a drain. You don't have to be near it while it drips dry.

Kicking my thread in the ***...

This weekend the powerslot rotors and ceramic pads go on.

Depending on how my packing goes, next weekend the supercharger comes off for a rebuild. I'm not porting the supercharger at this time since I still don't have a 3rd gen spare.

Also in the works, the Hulkspeed Series 1 PEMS are being worked on as we speak. Right now, I have a 2.5" pulley on, and I'm holding there until I make other improvements.

Interesting note on the pulley: When I first put it on, I had KR for the first couple of hours.. I also had changed a TPS at the same time, so I'm wondering how much of that KR had to do with the car learning the new sensor. It should be noted that the prior sensor was a 88-92 adjustable. That KR disapeared. With the past 2 days of 85+ degree weather, I've been monitoring for KR and have none at the moment.

The TPS has absolutely nothing to do with KR.

Have you ever done disc brakes before? Take GREAT pains to get the hubs clean and the backs of the rims before reinstalling everything or you stand the chance of warping the new rotors.

Clean the threads of the lug studs with a wire brush and lightly oil them as well, and torque them in stages. Don't take chances.

Make sure you properly 'bed' the pads and break the rotors in. If you don't know the proper procedure, contact Powerslot.

Powerslot rotors and raybestos pads are in. I have to stay that after bedding them in, I was really impressed with the stopping power.

Next weekend hopefully the new LIM and rebuilt supercharger goes in.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I began relooming the car last weekend and continued this weekend as well. No pics yet because I'm only about 2/5 of the way done, but for $10 bucks total its really dressing the engine bay up.
