600plus RWHP + drag radials = broken axle!

Here are some shots of the stock right axle. Ouch! I wish GM had put bigger CV joints in, but I guess they hadn't planned on people putting 600hp through them!

This is what's going on next... powder coated stock calipers, Hawk pads and widened stock wheels. 275.'s on the front, and 305's on the rear.

Caliper bolts finally came in today. For those who don't know, GM uses torque to yield (TTY) bolts to mount the calipers to the spindles. These are a one time use item. I know some people reuse them, but with my life riding on those eight bolts, I deemed it wise to replace them. Now I'm waiting on the Brembo cross-drilled rotors to get here. Also, I'm working on a different air cleaner setup that will use 4" tubing and connectors instead of the 3" presently there. The 3" setup was causing a restriction costing about 40 RWHP. See Lawdogg's thread for his dyno proof of this. Once all this is done, it's going on the dyno at RPM in Garner, NC to see what numbers mine turns. Stay tuned!

Air intake is done. It should flow more than the 3" setup that was on there. Only the dyno will tell for sure...

Frank, you put those powder coated calipers on your car yet? How do they look in person? Does it look like a job well done? Also do they look like somone else's beat up calipers??? Always scared getting something like this that is obviously from someone elses car and then sending in my calipers after. Hate to send my mint calipers and get something thats got beat up pistons and etc...

Please keep me posted if the calipers start changing color or chipping/flaking. Thanks!!!

If they hold up well for you I want a set of blue ones for my car

The filter is a TF49 from Turbohoses. The calipers I got from Andy at ADM. Excellent quality. I have not installed them yet, I'm waiting for new brake rotors (the two piece ones from Racing Brakes). I don't think the rotors will be here until the middle to end of Dec.

thanks, do you think that filter is better than a K&N filter?? Is it a "dry" filter?

Probably about the same, but I think it has more surface area because of the way it's made. It's oiled, just a different color. It kind of matches the car (like you'll ever be able to see it)!

Well, I'm waiting on parts for a few things. I got in on the Racing Brakes group buy on the two piece rotors. Also waiting on Pfadt springs and sway bars. So, I'll do a few electronic updates in the meantime. Got some CCFL tubes for footwell lighting. I'm trying to decide if I want these on only when the doors open, or on all the time. If I choose the latter, I'll need to find a way to dim them slightly when the doors close (my Cadillac does this). Got the blue lights and light tubes for the dash ABL. Need to install this. I've got most everything to do my fog light conversion. I'm replacing the DRL's with the factory fog light housings. They are different. I'll be installing white LED halo's from AAC to use as the DRL's and on with the headlights/factory halos. These will turn off when the fog lights are turned on. Changing the headlight switch to the non-rs type with the fog light switch. I'm using 3000K HID's for the fog lights. I think fog lights should be yellow (I'm old school I guess). I also think you should only use fog lights when there actually is fog present. When it's raining is OK too, I guess. After this is done, I may post a different thread on this. There seems to be a little lacking info on the threads I've read as far as the wiring goes. Maybe I'll be able to help...
