      RotorPros cross-drilled and slotted. They are killer for the price and will stop you on a quarter (inflation from bad economy)
    3. CiscoInATc
      I need to get myself new rotors and pads, i choose the Hawk pads cause i heard they were the best, But i don't know what do do about my rotors any recommendations?

      Yeah just for about 35 days. Looking for Scions with desert tires and PIAA lights on a brush bar. No luck yet.

      Hey man, heard your deployed. Good luck.

      Hey Navylife59,
      I thought you might like to see this prototype from a few years back. If anything it's another approach to more products for many transportation vehicles. It's called the Thompson Coupling. Pretty snazzy and a simple design nonetheless (crazy Aussies).

      PLEASE let me know when you do this! I will be first in line!
    9. navylife59
      My problem is no place to do a proper job. Once I get a shop built/bought, then I will be doing special custom work for my tC brethren.

      I'd love to have mine PC, but I don't want to deal with having to dis-assemble it.

      Maybe I'll look into the micro polish then. By chance, this is not something you could do for some $$ if I sent the unit to you, is it?
    11. navylife59
      Yes, you can have it micro polished. You could also use caliper paint on it that would last. My early pics were of the brush on type but I highly recommend the spray on type. Engine enamel paint works well too. The unit could be bead blasted for a nice sheen look before you paint it. I just PC mine because, well, I am just that way.
    12. Jay666
      "You can just have the Vortech S/C micro polished for a chrome look that does not require disassembly like you will have to do for PC, anodizing, or chroming".

      You can't have the TRD SC micro polished?

      Enlighten me...
    13. Jay666
      Sorry I have asked you so many questions dude.

      That thing is awesome! I'll PM you on this. I am def interested.

      Cool, thanks a lot man. I will look into those.

      I'm not able to access the post on the link you gave me for some reason. It's telling me I "don't have sufficient privileges to access the page"????

      Are you selling a piggback?

      Oh, also re the earlier discussion we had about the Weapon R ram air intake for the SC, have you heard any good or bad things about this? I am very close to purchasing and am kind of wondering if you were in my shoes and could not make a one off like you did, but wanted more out of the TRD SC set up if you would try that thing out. Or, if you know anyone who has.

      oh ok thanks a lot man!

      Boomslang makes adaptor pigtail harnesses to interface with the ECM. Most people like UniChip or Greddy Ultimate. The Ultimate is powerful, but has difficult support and can be quirky sometimes with our ECM. It takes someone with good working knowledge and experience to set it up right. The UniChip can be setup by UniChip by sending them the unit and giving them all of your mods. Not a dyno tune, but close. They also have a few authorized dealers scattered around.

      I still have this for sale. It can snaze up yours or I can PC yours for a different look. PM me.
    18. Jay666
      Cool. Thanx for the info. I don't think I have the patience or money to have the TRD SC disassembled and taken for PC. Would be nice, but oh well. Yours look bad ass though.

      Also, is there a brand of fuel piggyback you would recommend or caution to stay away from? I am debating getting one and need some guidance.
    19. navylife59
      Jay666.1 :) : You are welcome. Yes my TRD is PC. I did it myself. You will also notice that I machined off the mounting flange for the TRD cast intake plenum, drill the boss for an AIT fitting, and polished the interior of the compressor housing. I also upgraded the seals and the bearings to high-speed ceramic ball types. You can just have the Vortech S/C micro polished for a chrome look that does not require disassembly like you will have to do for PC, anodizing, or chroming.

      chop83: There is no "chip" for any late model Toyos or Scions. Yes, BC parts are uber reliable. Check out their website. They operate from state-of-art equipment, top-notch R&D, high-tech materials, and race proven.

      Yoki_1203: Anything TRD install by a Dealership will carry full TRD warranty and not cause any issue with warranty on your tC. TRD parts installed by other than Dealership generally should carry a 1 year, 12K mile warranty from TRD only. Dealership will not provide any warranty work on these parts. Your tC warranty can only be affected if it is proven that the install was done incorrectly and as a result, caused damage to your vehicle.
