    This was one of the few things that I outsourced. I never had good luck with bleeding a brake system so I left it to the pros at @RPM automotive.

    Yes, I received that warning from Brian as well and I communicated that to the install facility but there was no issue at all. I think you will like the pedal feel afterwards.

    Then I took it out to bed in the rotors (which was a lot of fun).

    Here's a quick run down of the install if anyone was planning on doing it themselves and had any questions.

    Hey bud, I made 10 stops from approximately 35 mph with even, moderate pressure. Make an additional 3 hard stops from approximately 50 mph. Do not allow the vehicle to come to a complete stop. When completed with this process, park the vehicle and allow the brakes to cool completely before repeating the process again. Do not engage the parking brake until after this cooling process is compete.

    I found that process on a pad manufacturer website. It worked well and the brakes work without any issue.

    Haven't posted in a while but I got lots of big plans and parts coming in. Here's a little catch up.

    Added a custom touch.
    PSX_20190917_114555.jpg

    Became an instructor for the SCCA a few months ago.


    Ordered a very large custom part for the car. Still waiting on that...

    Got this.
    20190930_110556.jpg

    Organized a Dyno Day with Pearson Fuels a couple weekends ago.


    Uncovered an electrical issue with the car's IMRC and resolved it. Went back to the dyno
    20191009_112317.jpg

    This was on 91 pump gas, I'll go back on e85. It runs pretty healthy now. The first 2 runs were probably flukes so were realistically looking at 477-483HP/377-379TQ.
    I really liked that 2nd run though lol.
    20191012_075719.jpg

    These came in. Still waiting on the spacers though...

    Hey 2morrow any chance you have decibel numbers for each of your exhaust setups?

    I really want to go 3" all the way from my headers back but I'm worried about the volume for Open Track Days.

    Hey @tevaburns I did do a bunch of sound recording on a few set ups on this video but I have not done anything yet on the new set up.



    With that being said I can definitely take some measurements with the new set-up and post them for you.
    3" pipes on headers will be pretty loud no matter what muffler you have. I might suggest some bullet resonators at the very least.

    My current configuration will definitely be too loud for Laguna Seca (or weathertech or whatever the hell they're calling themselves now)
    but I kept the Magnaflow Y pipe resonator for that track. Thunderhill and my home track of Sonoma is no problem but I don't have headers.
