Oil pressure and temp gauges are wired. Sensors were supposed to go in but mechanic had an emergency so they will Monday.





TCS OFF switch lights up. I will be using the switch for my Forged fans to manually turn them on when I want to.

Took a 200 mile drive today. Very happy with the way the car is now.

Oil temp & pressure are in. Temp did not get above 140. **** pressure gauge stays pinned at 100. Ordered a 140 psi gauge.

I bought these last night.

Pretty sure it is a mistake. I asked from every direction and he verified part number and application.

What do you mean 'mistake?' Those look nice. I personally wouldn't get the cross-drilled.

The part number is not cross drilled, I agree I don't want the holes.

The mistake is (I think) they meant rears as the fronts cost a minimum of 370 shipped or 330 plus shipping everywhere else. I expected them to say they were refunding and not shipping but just got tracking. Hopefully I get what they said I would.

Oh, I see. In that case, good luck!

I just had an issue with an eBay transaction and left a negative feedback. They didn't ship my item for 8 days. I finally got what I wanted, but I didn't appreciate the false promises.

I hate when eBay (or any) sellers don't ship when they say they will or at least communicate what is going on.

Picked up the COZ Akebono brackets yesterday. I have eBay brackets but am replacing the rotors and figured it couldn't hurt to get quality brackets. (not that I had any issues with the eBay ones)



Also got the oil pressure gauge finished.



Oil temp sensor:


Pressure sensor:





The stock gauge is 10lbs high at idle and up to 30 at high revs. I am not running over 120lbs, at wot it is near 100.

Got out to the garage at 6am and did the driver side, got lazy. Maybe do passenger later?



Replaced eBay bracket with COZ. Nothing wrong with the old one.





COZ next to eBay. These are opposite since I took off the driver side and installed it. I'll try to remember to get a picture of the passenger side.

Did you get these at a better deal that the Akebono (or whatever it is) brake kit? It is essentially the same calipers correct?

I am a big fan of those DBA brake rotors, I was thinking of getting those in the OEM brembo rotor sizes, but other things come first.

I had the calipers. Got them from eBay for 5xx.xx, brackets were 125.00. They were fine as it turns out getting the COZ was unnecessary. I'll be selling the eBay brackets and 10k mile Adams Rotor 14s.

By piecing it together I saved over a grand over what they go for from Z1 or COZ.

Passenger side.



Old vs new 14" rotors.


eBay vs COZ brackets. I think I did not need to replace them.

New Kenwood DNX9980 installed.









Old unit could do this, and I had the camera. I just never ran the rca.





Installed a Spal fan and then this:

:lol: Nice setup. After all you've done, I'm surprised you don't move in. Looks like it's got everything you need except a toilet.

Is it drivable yet?

Got the first CEL I was happy to see today:

P0128 Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)

It was 47 degrees outside, coolant was 122 on the freeway oil temp at or under 100 and the light came on. I read it with my Garmin, and smiled that my cooling mods were working. Cleared it and kept going.
