    Some times you just have to buy parts for the future for just incase things change when they are rare and expensive. So when I seen this pop up just had to snag. 4 spider for a ppg gearset. 20201016_195556.jpg

    Order a set of GT3 brake ducts . Thier are threads in the forums on these and other styles. I choose this set up for its simplicity. Screenshot_20201101-103108_Samsung Internet.jpg 20170824_214629.jpg 1zocen9.jpg simplicity.

    I'm also gearing up for a mock build of everything in the front of the car. Since suspension,stearing,oiling and cooling system changes. With no heat and ac in the car including heater box delete and water pipe delete also. I also plan on using a 1g short route intercooler. So some radiator support mods are in order. This will allow me to starting routing plumbing for the turbo to intercooler and back up to the tb. Coolant hoses, and oil lines. I have a mockup motor with a built head, staged awd 5 speed trans and a tcase ,along with parts in my list except a 1g short route intercooler. I need to mock up all the parts and and a talon front cover to determine the maximum thickness i can use for a fmic.

    The bolts are not a wise idea! The reason most use 12.9 cap heads it because they prodice too much force and they need the tensile strength othereise they pull apart. TI is rated to about 8.8 grade. Its like using stainless which i would also never run in calipers.

    Just be warned as its not the ideal location to use hardware in critical places that needs super high tensile steel!

    I'm not spending x amount on titanium bolts on the brake system. Thier are better ways to reducing wieght . Besides the willwoods are considerably lighter than oem and brembos as it is. ;)

    Well the stearing rack is here and mocked up. For those who have also gotten thiers, make sure you have your stearing wheel centered before tear down, especially if you are using the factory air bag ith clock spring. Center the stearing gear to 2 and a quarter inches on both sides and then assembled tie rods and boots. Now I have to dig thru my parts and find my whiteline evo adjustable end links. Next up will be modifying the subframe brace. Stay tuned. ;) 20201128_185528.jpg

    I don't understand all of the drivetrain stuff(way over my head) but I'm excited to see it come together and curious how it will hold up.
