Default OK, 2nd Mod Done Today.

Well finally hit 1000 miles & decided to go into work today on my day off (I work every other Saturday) to change the oil & upgrade the brakes.



After some discussion with several parties, I've determined that Mobile1 synthetic 5W30 will serve my purposes just fine & will be much easier to access if I 'm in an emergency situation, unlike the other options I was thinking about. I purchased the big jug of 4.76 qts or whatever & I went with the Hyundai oil filter, not forgetting the drain plug crush ring. I poured the entire jug of oil in & put me right between the high & low marks on the dipstick...cool.

You will notice in the pic, camber bolts amongst everything, but the tech didn't get around to doing my alignment with new camber bolts. I guess it will get done next week sometime next week.


As for the brakes, there are no 2pc light weight rotors available that I'm interested in at this time, so I decided to install the rest of the brake parts I have already got for now & add the rotors later. The parts included Frixa street pads front & rear, TiC Ti backing plates, Motul 600 DOT4 brake fluid, KPR SS clutch & brake lines. I did use a BG brake fluid flush machine to remove fluid & bleed brakes 1st time & did them by hand the 2nd time. I also have a set of Frixa Race pads that I will swap out once I get to the track & back again B4 I get home.

This was by far the easiest brake pads I've ever installed & was on about the same difficulty level as the AGP accumulator & breather install. The lines were pretty simple & straight forward too. The only thing I can recommend is using an actual brake/transmission/fuel line wrench for the removal of end of the replacement line that connects to the line on the body of the car (not the caliper side). Originally I tried using the open end of an 11mm gear wrench & started to strip, but backed off immediately & borrowed an 11mm line wrench from one of my techs & was able to save the line.

For those wanting a DIY for the brakes, her you go; TiC stated it better than I could:
Comprehensive brake info thread
Another DIY on replacing brake lines:
Replacing the Brake Lines
Also; another DIY on bleeding brakes:
Bleeding Brakes

Oh yeah pics B4 & after.
You will notice a black nipple on top of each brake caliper in each pic, but there are actually 2 up there, only I cut the other one off in pic. I mention this because these are your bleeder screws.

Ok, you're right, my bad. I will do a write-up on the SS lines & bleeding the brakes/clutch.

Looking mighty fine there tufast. I like the piano black idea, personally if i had "extra money" i think id take mine down to a body shop have em cut out the top make a glass roof, with a dark tint on it... Just food for thought have you thought about maybe the jl 8" subwoofer, they have an amazing sound, tight base will hit nice

Lookin good Tufast! I'm lovin' the tag team style build threads that are going on in this forum right now, we're covering every avenue with great detail! I'll be watching the handling type threads closely as I will be working that direction once the power package is complete!

Yeah, you handle the power mods & I will handle the rest & by the time we finish, we will be ready to switch & learn from the other.

BTW, front brake ducts coming real soon at no cost to me, I will fab up my own & give DIY to follow. Just waiting on ARK grille to be released so can do that at same time.

The clutch line is replaced just like the brake lines.
- Start by loosening the line bolt on drivers side of M/T with 12mm wrench, but not to the point brake fluid leaks out
- Remove the clip that holds the line in place up top with a pair of pliers by pulling out on it until it is free
- Break the line loose from the line going to the pump by using 16mm to hold line at bottom & use 11mm box style line wrench to hold upper line to the pump
- Take out your new line & put a recovery oil pan under where you are about to work
- Line should only be about hand tight, so remove bolt out of tranny side 1st, then as line dangles, remove from upper line
- Install new line reverse order doing the upper connection 1st then to the tranny *note; do not tighten hardware, only snug down
- Adjust the line so that there is slack throughout
- Torque down all the hardware
- Reinstall the clip into the line to hold it in place up top where meets other line, you will need to tap in with hammer
- Remove filler cap & add brake fluid to full mark *note; don't overfill
or at this point you could flush system
- Bleed system

As for wrenches used, double check sizes, because I'm writing this from memory...

Thanks
