Went out cruising last night since it was a cool night 55 degrees....

I hit boost cut for the first time on the Aristo ECU....was on the highway doing a pull in 4th gear and it scared the hell out of me at first as I thought something broke.

Good fail safe to have on the ECU.

yeah on the cold days you hit a little more boost, just turn down the boost controller a touch and should be good next time.

Finished up the rear brakes......new slotted rotors and pads.....Painted rear calipers gold to match the front



The rotors were completely junk in the rear.....the pads literally fell apart



Old vs. New






Installed a set of 6000K HID kit....Pretty pleased with the results for only $65...Huge difference over stock bulbs at night

Im in the process of replacing all bulbs on entire car to convert them all over to LED

The only bulbs im not able to get to work are the cornering lights......I spliced them into the sidemarkers so they are always on when you turn the city lights on....Weird thing is I got the 1156 20 smd LED bulb and it will not turn on.....I ended up using the bulbs for the backup lights...

Any ideas? Do I need to add a resistor to them

did you flip them around? i know it sounds stupid but sometimes the LEDs don't light up when they're facing a certain way. idk what else it could be?

LEDs are diodes. They require the correct polarity unlike conventional bulbs. Try flipping them around if they don't work.
