biggrin Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

Ok.. like the topic said I have just got my tax back.

Now so far on my shopping list i have

PaceMaker Extractors: $419 Fitted
Crow Stage 2 Cam: $499 Fitted (Gotto Confirm if this is with or without dyno)
JL 12" W6 V2: $1200 Retail Got it for $850
Box for said JL: Guestimating about $300
Also im ordering some custom airbox and bonnet scoops: ????
(Not sure of a price for 2 x bonnet scoops and the airbox)
and lastly:
2 x (For front only) Slotted and perhaps cross drilled rotors (havent made up my mind which way to go yet)

My question's are

Do the above prices seem good?

And also what kind of price would I be looking at for the cross drilled and slotted/ just slotted rotors. Can i just replace the front two rotors or is it something you have to replace all four?

Like usual, any comments are greatly appreciated
any flames can be emailed to jonnyhoward@thebigwigsoffice.gov.au

Thanks

Cheers

Adam

Re: Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

I talked to repco who said $395 for "mild crow cam" Supply only. Couldnt give part number but.
So 500 fitted doesnt sound too bad. Are u getting the venier (adjustable) gear?

Paceys seem pretty good. Quikfit said $420 fitted, so u went 1 better

Re: Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

With the slotted Vs slotted & cross drilled, DBA say there is no difference in performance - the cross-drilled are really only for looks.

As for price, they should be somewhere around the $130-$140 mark each disc (yes, $280 per pair). Luckily, doing the front is all you require for a good brake upgrade - doing all the rear as well will give only slightly better stopping power.

Re: Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

I got a 10.5 rwkw increase with my crow cam after I got the verneir gear installed, so in my opinion, if you get the cam, get the vernier gear.

Re: Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

I presume you are replacing the pads as well as the front rotors??

Hey guys,

Thanks for your replys,

Depending on how much I have left over I might end up getting the verneir gear, does anyone know how much that is worth?

Also I think im going to go for the slotted rotors instead of cross drilled, and I only replaced the pads a couple of thousand kms ago, I'll have to check out what type of pads I put on there, they were bendex something but I cant remember. If they arnt the good ones then yes I will be replacing them aswell.

EFJas, Do you have any idea who In perth I could take my car to, to get the rotors done?


Cheers

Adam

Re: Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

Should be able to get the rotors done at any place that does brakes if they dont have them im sure they can order them in or
you can buy the rotors at Auto one,Repco or something like that

Re: Adam1982's Tax Refund Shopping Spree

I thought that someone posted a tech article on FF detailing how to replace the discs. Dunno if you wanted to do it yourself though...
