Brakes:
So i got a great deal from a buddy to trade his SVT brakes (full disk) for my smaller front disks and rear drums

This is my brakes broken down:
Front right:

Front left:



Left Rear:


Right rear:



The new brakes will hopefully be going on this weekend. They are 12" front disks and 11" rear disk. I also am installing new rear camber arms and rear toe arms.

Coils need a cleaning

nothing a wire brush and brake clean wont fix

Got a good amount of stuff done this weekend. I started with cutting and final mounting the 2.5" intercooler piping and rotated the turbo into position.
I didn't have a chop saw on hand so i bought a huge pipe cutter does up to 3 1/8 inches. worked out great.

After that i got the rest of the brake swap done. I found out from the kid i got them from that the rears are not actually svt rears. They are off of another focus so they are only 10" rotors. The caliper is also in a different location. The fronts are still SVT focus, i measured them and they are true 12" rotors.

Final Brake Swap:
Rear rotor,caliper,knuckle,control arm and toe arm


Close up of the toe arm


New camber arm compared to the old.


both camber arms, yes pink and no you wont see them haha


Other rear rotor and caliper


Right rear all installed


Left rear installed




Left Front installed


guess i forgot to take a picture of the right front but its on.

Exhaust:
so i was running a 3in turbo back "straight" piped. i loved the way it sounded. On decel it would crackle and pop like crazy. nick said it sounded like "boulders" tumbling. but when i upped my compression from 8.5-1 to 9.0-1 it started doing it between gears and got a lot louder. I got pulled over passing a cop at 2500 rpm. I decided to go back to my magnaflow muffler. It had been sitting outside and i think it destroyed the packing. i lost power but it did help the sound. I wanted to try something different this year so i went with a MBRP resonator. 3" in/out, 4" body and 20" long

Old muffler:


New:




In the car:


Fit perfectly in the stock location!
