I got boostig t-stat housing - that thing is sexy ! I will make some pictures today
also I have been off from my engine build - got 2 foci put on the wheels from a scratch .. in AZ summer time - suxx
one foci is almost back on the wheels and will be my dd until I build engine - another one will be a spare car for now and will sell it later - that one requires a timing job done and engine is on the ground right now - so as soon as I finish these 2 foci - I will I assume move on to the engine build ... pretty complicated :D

the way I balanced my build out was with another car to drive around everywhere needed.

I am currently working on my rear suspension and brakes and decided to powder coat svt calipers and while was preparing it to get to the process - took piston off and all the seals except one that is on the back that holds that stupid retaining spring metal piece
located on the right hand side of the caliper on the picture
does anybody have an idea how to take it off and no damaging it that seal doesn't come with rebuild seals kit
(headache)

Did you get a deal on it or did you have to pay 299 for it?
I saw it on ebay for 229 and I called and said I would get it
they were going to call me back so I could pay with my CC and didnt then a week later they had the price to 299, so I didnt get it.
I emailed them that if it was 229 I would buy one but they never emailed me back.

I got it for less then 229 with a 10% off for the special they had for FF if you order it from their website

it was done at the time when only second group of buyers started to populate
they are busy for sure

go to their website and try to buy it from there and provide discount code that is in the group buys thread of the forum

I hate snap rings. Snap rings are evidence that Evil exists in the world! Someone poor schmuck lost a bet and the Devil said "I will let you out of the deal - I have this simple little device I'd like you to introduce to the world
