Here is a rotor comparison from OEM to EVO swap. Much much bigger
What diameter are the Evo rotors in mm? I have some Brembo calipers from Mercadies I want to use but having a hard time finding the size I need in our bolt pattern. Might have to redrill some rotors

ROAD RENEGADE Its a shame everyone seems to be having difficulty running live tune. I really do hope issue are resolved soon cause I know I felt like pulling my mustache off I was so frustrated
September 14th, 2018 08:31 AM
cmturner Lol, I can't live tune eather, he said not enough memory on mine or something like that
Still trying to fix my heater codes issue
September 13th, 2018 10:23 PM
ROAD RENEGADE Thank Dotd0t, I actual got with Michael the other night and we fixed my problem. Hopefully by the end of this month ill head to Orlando and get it dyno tuned at Kings Performance. For sure brother im dying for a Florida Mitsu meet. When we get both our cars finished well definitely get something going
September 13th, 2018 08:42 PM
dotd0t Looking good road. Sorry your live tuning don't work mine doesn't either. Haven't tryed to get him to fox it on mine yet. My car took nearly a year to get drivable which now drives well just a few little hiccups when starting off tapping on gas. Other than that I just needmaybe 1 or 2 revisions once I get clutch broken in.

I wanna do the brembo swap soon just waiting to get clutch broken in the. Maybe a paint job then to dealer for the recall on brakes. Can't get recall done if brakes are modified 😞. Looking good brother can't wait to hang out

DeAtHsWhIpLaSh In the term of do I make a living from tuning car's nah....I just tune all my race car's (including my own 4g) and just offering any help I can give! I'm trying to help get his car running correctly, because I strongly dislike the way this online tuning works which Is why I have steered 4g drivers to another route and they have thanked me every time due to when they see members having problems with getting a fresh tune......
September 11th, 2018 10:04 AM
pcfreak4 You’re a tuner?
September 11th, 2018 10:02 AM
DeAtHsWhIpLaSh I can fix it!...But if you decide to use hackish then your stuck waiting for him!
September 10th, 2018 12:00 PM
ROAD RENEGADE No updates sense last post. Ive been waiting sense then for Michael to fix a problem with the live tuning. Its driving me nuts. The car has been down for so fucking long! If it was a mechanical issue, no problem I'd be on it and fixing it. But when it comes to the tuning game, I'm new to it and to be honest kinda fucked cause with how busy Michael is you locked into using his program as its practically the only way for us to adjust our ECUs.

I bought brembos and rotors not long ago and haven't installed them as I'm waiting because ill have to get wheel spacers for the front due to how large the front calipers are. But if I'm going to get the wheel spacers I'm going to pursue doing my wide body project I sought out to do a year ago.

I dont post much these days, as medical issues are still effecting how much I'm able to get out and do things. Thanks for showing interest though

Zkdawg2 Any updates?
June 21st, 2018 04:02 PM
ROAD RENEGADE I have never had a problem with idle prior to installing the supercharger and tune. I did get one tune from Michael but even that idles at 1600 rpms. I'm not totally sure whats up with it. This is my first boost project so im learning as I go.
June 21st, 2018 04:00 PM
dotd0t Hmm i didnt have that at any point. Did this start after tune or before? Kinda sounds like bad temp switch causing it think stay in fast idle. :/
June 21st, 2018 03:56 PM
ROAD RENEGADE My Idle RPM is 3000. The car drives itself in 1st and 2nd gear. Im running extremely rich. It appears for some reason that my ECU shows my car is only warming up to 75*c. I know these things take awhile, especially yours sense your rocking the turbo build which is much more complex than a supercharger.
June 21st, 2018 03:16 PM
dotd0t Alrighty, what issues do you have to compare to some of the issues we've had tuning mine.

p.s. mines been getting tuned since before september it is now finally almost there after we figure out what was going on.
June 21st, 2018 11:43 AM
ROAD RENEGADE I have everything installed on the car. Everything has been looked over several times. Michael and I have been fight to knock the majority of the problems out but it's been a long 3 months. It doesn't help that I keep ending up in and out of the hospital. But I'm having all kinds of issues. After we get everything settled I'm thinking about taking her to Kings Performance in Orlando.
June 21st, 2018 10:52 AM
dotd0t So speaking of your tuning. Who is gonna be tuning it? Is it completely installed onto car yet?
May 21st, 2018 08:43 AM
Sabertooth^2 Only time will tell

On the 30th or whenever I feel like it (specific enough?) I'll close the voting as usual

Concept photos

The first 2 photos have custom wheel spacers on. I just put one on to see how far the wheel puckers out. Its all in preparation to fabricate a wide body project. I wont be able to start anytime soon till my father finishes the 78 El Camino project. The last photo is a concept Audi R8 photo i'm referencing. I want to make the wide body similar.

ROAD RENEGADE Started installing NGK one step colder spark plugs, 440CC fuel injectors, lower ported n'polished manifold. Also I'm working at my water pump and timing belt sense I just hit 80,000 miles. After all this ill bolt up the SC and be heading to Orlando for a final tune! After 4 years of gathering parts its finally happening.
March 7th, 2018 11:09 PM
SuperEvilnine Shes looking clean man, thats next on my list, cleaning up the engine bay. I nominated u for COTM, good luck!
October 27th, 2017 03:11 PM
ROAD RENEGADE Heres some new photos. Nothing fancy but I'd thought id show the engine bay a little more. Also just got done installing my Mishimoto Oil catch can.

DR3 Get better soon. Sincerely the guy who's been waiting way to long to see your SC build
October 18th, 2017 04:22 PM
ROAD RENEGADE Hey guys sorry for being a little slow on the forum. I've been in the hospital for awhile and things are turning out for the worst in life haha but the wheel in the sky keeps on turning. Anyways, as you know I am a incredibly slow modder but here's a sneak peek at my progress. I have my man Hackish working on my FI tune so as soon as I recieve the file ill go ahead and install my RIPP SC i've had for the last 3 damn years haha

I also have all my supplies for my widebody project i'm going to start. Ill make sure to document the process as I continue. Attachment 71305
