    Finished buttoning everything up with the splitter install this morning. Made some custom brackets for the splash guard to mount to the splitter with some aluminum flat bar I had in the garage. I also installed the rear carbon fiber lookalike diffuser too. I think everything came out looking pretty good.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I replaced the Wilwood BP-20 pads with BP-10 pads Per Aaron’s suggestion and bedded them which has made a big difference already. Most of the squeal is gone so far!
    After a couple decent stops I will get a loud squeal on the next stop but it’s pretty manageable. I only drove around for about 30 minutes and it was cold and rainy so the brakes were cooling down quickly.

    Looks like the track will get rained out on Friday as well, damn!

    The performance of the brakes is very noticeable over the stock brakes. I had new rotors and pads installed as a condition of but the SHO so the OEM stuff I had was good shape. The OEM setup just always felt lacking and had some crazy fade. The Wilwoods stop the car quickly with out noticeable fade.

    Just purchased a treadstone TRV25 vertical flow cooler to swap out my tr8c. Figured I'd get the other intercooler hooked up as the same time as the meth kit!

    I drove it today...

    doing some checks on the suspension tonight, swapping over to the XDI-60 pump, changing spark plugs and doing another check for boost leaks. yee haw

    After I complete that I plan to take inventory of everything I have for the turbo swap to decide if I need to order anything else before I start that endeavor...
