I'll be going back down there sometime this week to have them changed. DAMN! They squeal worse that a stuck pig in heat! I'm waiting to drive the 200 or so miles for the pads to break in... if that doesn't work... they are coming off.

I hate it when people say... why is it that you have a 40,000 sports car and the brakes squeak???


which I think I might have screwed up with my 100 emergency brake maneuver... but whatever.

I'm putting down 212hp, 210torque on his dyno... and that's just with the intake/exhaust/software. Karl says the car is running too rich tho. It's running like 12:1. He wants to tune it out in the mid range to like 13.5:1 ... he says that'll make more power.

Their exhaust makes real good power. Sounds awesome too. Nothing like standing next to your own car while it's redlining 3rd gear on the dyno.

I know what you mean... took us that long to get
my car PERFECT! 13.5:1 from idle to 4800rpm, but
from that till redline was 13.0:1 ratio for just
insurance.

I was running the car while Karl used his labtop
from CONSISTANT back to back runs. neat little
gadget and his labtop.
