Never saw a shorty antenna that was so short. What brand and how is the reception?
I made it myself, reception is fine.

Just got home from vacation and had a surprise in the mail.

Most likely install next month.

I was very disappointed when my slots faded on my girodisc two piece rotors so I upgraded to the stoptech aero drilled rotors.
Anyways make sure you bed them in correctly to get the best stopping.

Yes, that applies to any rotors and pads if you don't break them in properly. I plan to break in the pads and rotors according to the bed-in procedures.


No more dead batteries. Picked up a NOCO G7200 UltraSafe Battery Charger and Maintainer.

So I haven't really figured out what the MIVEC extender actually accomplishes there - is it just so you can use the OEM engine harness while still tucking away the coil pack wires? Or is it just to make the wire tuck process easier, but still requires chopping up the harness?

It helps you extend the Exhaust cam sensor without cutting into your OEM harness.

Installed @ClubSpec NRG OPS MIVEC Extension Harness, ClubSpec Master Cylinder Brace and @Chasing Js Titanium coil pack cover.

How did it work out? I too get a slight whistle and noise at speed

Are these bolt in, or do they require drilling?
It actually cutdown on wind noise substantially.


They are bolt on, no drilling required.


Giving Carbon Kevlar Spark Plug Cover a try.




Polished OEM Hood Insulator with Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish.

Swapped out Girodisc S/S "Orange" Front & Rear Pads, for Girodisc Magic "Black" Front & Rear Pads.


S/S pads had amazing stopping power but I just got tired of the brake squeal since I would never get the pads hot enough for optimal temps.

(Pads were bed in properly)

In addition they're very aggressive pad that takes off a substantial amount of compound from the rotors. Thus, your rotors will not last that long.



Magic pads are subpar stopping power nowhere near S/S but, no brake squeal in any condition and not harsh on rotors.
