  1. For those with late model US spec cars, 3D printed plinths LED lighting.
  2. I have had Toyo calipers and vented rotors for 15+ years, the bigger issue is finding good pads. Currently I am running custom pads with KFP gold material which matches the material on the rear brakes (GoodParts disc brake kit). The best part of my brake upgrade was the GoodParts dual master cylinder.

    Wha Hoo!

    Graham, I did a little linear regression analysis on RPM vs road speed estimates correlated with the corrected HP, flywheel hp, and torques values from the plots. It is all pretty consistent. For those who care, HP = (torque x RPM)/5252 I would say this is true at the flywheel. Correcting for drive train losses is ripe for argument. It seems your dyno folks used a total of about 27% loss, some of that was environmental (hotter than standard day, pressure altitude etc) I'm sure. Modern drive trains are a bit lower but then again, some of us have Toyota transmissions and nissan diffs and CV halfshafts. Your engine shows a good flat torque curve with best torque around 5035 RPM (estimate). That would be your VEmax point assuming that AFR's were good and ignition was optimized. I would say that you could get a little more torque at this top end if you had a crank fired and mapped (16x16 table) non dizzy system. Which means you would see HP gains as the RPM increased right up to your and your wallet's limit. A Racetorations billet crank, block brace, cast sump, carrillo's, and light weight pistons, what? good to 7K maybe. If the torque stayed up around 180 lbft, that would be 240hp. It's just money, right?

    Curious, you wouldn’t have the torque curve vs RPM would you? I’ll assume rolling road and these curves (including) torque are the corrected to flywheel amounts, yes? Trying to compare apples to apples as it were. In the states, we use hp & torque vs RPM for the graphs. Sometimes just at the wheel if it’s a rolling road, sometimes corrected to flywheel if rolling road.

  7. I replaced all the rear tail lights with printed circuit board LEDs from Spokeworks. The boards plug directly into the wiring harness, bypassing the pesky bulb holders. Pricey, yes, but really well designed and fabricated.
  8. I had shielded the lines and had shields on the exhaust pipes. The fuel got so hot, you couldn’t touch the fuel rail comfortably. I live in Phoenix, so heat is a big issue. Now, the rail is a bit cooler than the plenum.
  9. That is how I did it, however, with fuel pumping around in a big circuit with both lines in the T shirt area, the fuel got wicked hot. I have subsequently rerouted one line out of that area. My neighbor, who is a big time hot rod guy, is doing something completely different on his 57 vette. The pump and the regulator are in the tank. A MAP line is connected from the manifold back to the back of the car to a fitting on the side of the tank which then goes to the regulator. Only the pressure referenced fuel line goes to the fuel rails. Cuts down on noise, return lines, etc and is much safer. Most ECU's have a air purge code upon initial start up so that isn't a problem.
  10. All in would be dual masters and discs from GoodParts., Ted at TSI can make bespoke pads or shoes out of differing compounds so front and rear have same material. KFP magnum gold material works good on the street (good coefficient of friction when cold), but many would consider them messy.

  12. Sure, took pictures but they won’t upload from my phone. They are about 3.8 MB each but still fail to upload even just one.
  13. Ian, I did six mega jolt kits 13/14 years ago. This was from the first customer’s car. I still have the drawings. Fabbed out of some scrap al plate, small piece had groove milled in it for the sensor, the other plate milled to get height correct, the sensor set with the gap for EDIS. Used existing holes on front plate. As for the position of the missing tooth/trigger wheel, way back then, yes it mattered for mega jolt or mega squirt. As for now, IDK.
  14. Something along this line, perhaps?
  15. Dissimilar metals with an electrolyte solution equal battery/corrosion. Change coolant like you should and consider, https://www.northernfactory.com/knowledge/sacrificialcaps. Modern cars have aluminium, cast iron, plastic etc in the coolant loop. Coolant ages out because of this.
