Heard good and bad about Power stop brakes, went with Advance stuff since it has such high mileage and I don't tow the 5th wheel with it anymore.

On an 89 F250 I have one rotor was wore down to the fins on one side, didn't stop that bad or make noise. It did get new ones though. Lol

You went the right route. I'm running power stops and they're okay but nothing spectacular. There is no more surface area on the pads or rotors. you can literally get drilled & slotted rotors much cheaper than power stops, some new calipers & spray paint them red and buy carbon metallic pads and you'll have the same result.

They're good brakes but way overpriced for what they do. I don't notice much more stopping power to be honest.

For now my hose is routed like the p[icture instructions on riffraff diesels kit.



I will only use the 90 degree fitting if I decide to route it back to the intake but I don't feel I will need that yet. As for mounting it on the frame there are holes for big zip ties or some u bolt set up etc.


Just from my experience of having a open ccv in time it will drip oil on the ground. After putting on the Mishimoto 6.0 catch can on my 7.3 I do the catch can back to the engine it has help get rid of some of the oil leaks I have had and I donít get the smoke and oil smell any more witch I love now.

Look at my rotors I replaced last year. Never seen anything like it. They were on the truck when I bought it. Can't imagine what happened to them. Plus they and the pads were deeply scored.

Rotors are TOAST also, one thing I noticed that on the passenger side there are those little clips that the pads sit in where missing on the inside pad. Haven't gotten to the driver side, long story.

I installed a new TURBO!

got a Turbonetics ball bearing turbo for free. Had a buddy that got a discontinued model for free and he shot it to me.

Upon installation I decided to do a EBPV delete pedestal. Ordered a Chinese kit off fleabay since I am a cheap *** and it totally bit me in the ***.

Pedestal o-rings turned out to be garbage. The evidence is the 1-2 gallons of oil in my driveway!

Somebody pray for me, I'm tearing it all apart again on Sunday & will be getting the new o-rings Monday. Hopefully I can work on it a few hours before I go to work.

When we moved to KY in 2015 I returned the ECM back to the stock setting because I was towing a heavy trailer for 2600 miles and didn't want to cook anything. So today, after 4 years of running at the stock program, I reinstalled the Superchips tune back into it. Also replaced the Isspro Manifold Pressure Gauge. The old one would stick at 0 then finally jump up once the boost got over 5 PSI.

All is well with the world again!

So my truck hates me, pit new rotors and pads, it was missing some of the clips that hold the pads in place, went for a test drive and the passenger side caliper locked up.
