    For you rear drum guys, any recommendations on new shoes? Something with a bit more STOPPING power would be great. The Raysbestos Organics I installed last year were a bit wimpy.

    Screw the pads, tell me about your turbocharged 3FE.

    If your in SE Idaho come take a peek. ;)

    The turbo is on the wrong side unfortunately. T4 with a custom manifold off the stock one. Intercooler is a Griffen custom. Vortech FMU and a Holley pump for fuel enhancement.

    The wastegate seized up last year so I've been running a Saab spare I had. Unfortunately only at 3-4psi as this wastegate won't hold more.

    I ought to take some pictures some time but no one cares about the 3FE. :crybaby:
