    Please provide some feedback on the Drake's after you have some track days on them. I'm curious how they will hold up.

    Car prepped and Ready for Watkins Glen, Monday/Tuesday with Chin.

    Increased front camber from 2.1* to 2.7* using a combination of the Ford Service strut Bolts and MM camber plates. About 3mm of clearance from Hoos 315/30R19's to strut.

    You don't have the struts slotted, correct? I was hoping to run that size tire all around but I don't have camber plates and I'm maxed out at -1.8 on the front with slotted struts and service bolts. :(

    No I don't have the struts slotted. I did grind the thick part of each of the service bolts on one side to allow more movement. I think you'll need camber plates to run Hoos 315's with moderate-high camber. The 315 PSC2's will likely fit -- their sidewall is more tapered.

    Picked the car up and the check engine light came on went off within first five minutes. Came on again as I passed the dealer to go home... Sitting there now while they pull the code.

    It's not reassuring.

    This engine has less piston slap noise though.

    Ouch. Hope it's a sensor, wiring glitch.

    Sounds like a software issues. Should be an easy fix.
    Hang in there.

    @bpracer Be sure to check that the dealer did a re-learn on the Crank position sensor. Any Trans/Clutch/Engine swap will generate codes and a CEL without this.

    Not sure what codes popped, but it will be going back to fix the splitter reinstallation. Looks like the center section is not right not sitting flush. I may just do it myself though.

    Can't even drive the car, the registration expired while they had the car and I'm going out of town again so can't take care of it anytime soon.

    I do have plans for the car. I bought a used trunk lid painted the right color, shadow black, with no spoiler holes for $80, local pickup! And I have a hood that I bought for $600 shipped! I'll have to get it painted, or at least parts of it as it's magnetic now.

    @06mach1 Mike, looking good. Which RSD kit did you use?

    Built my own RSD, just like I did with the Boss. This was a little easier though.

    The sub belt attaches to the mount then goes between the bottom of the seat back and the bottom cushion (in the split between the two). You actually sit on the sub belts.

    I know how they are routed. I figured out what I was looking at. I have your mount.

My friend did the download and tune. I can’t wait til next Wednesday and take it to Track night. I hope to break the 2 minute time.

    It was Beaverun now it’s called Pittsburgh International Race complex. The new owners have made the track so much better. First weekend in August the Trans Am series will be there.

    Jealous! Have fun! I've only run the North loop there, back before they built the South loop. Still had a blast, lovely facility.
