What's wrong with your front right brake caliper?

I wouldn't have wanted those guys loading/unloading my car, but I guess they seem to be really safe about it. So awesome that you got you car boosted now

thanks guys!! really appreciate the feedback. i will indeed be there this weekend. cant wait!
and yea it was definitely a LONG trek but it enjoyed the whole process.
mo didn't go too fast "per se", cuz we were on local streets near his shop, but just feeling him take it up to full boost from about a 20 mph roll scared the SH*T outta me. but it was awesome!

yea it was definitely a great experience, and i'm glad i took the time to do with at SRT. i'm sure a local shop coulda done it, but SRT has done this exact setup so many times i just wanted to minimize my risk of running into future problems. and so far, based on how well and nicely its running, i think i did. let's hope for the best obviously!
so get 'er done!!!

i got the kit off a member here for about $4100 brand new.
mo's installation costs dont vary too much if you're install is quite straightforward like mine was. not sure if he wants me advertising his prices on here, but all his prices you can find on their website.
and then it depends on your variables: what gauges and how many of them you choose, whether you're gunna upgrade your exhaust, your internals, your tranny, etc. etc. etc. it adds up but definitely do your research so you dont end up spending unnecessary money.

haha. i figured somebody would hear what mo was starting to say about the front right caliper.
and yea, i DEFINITELY didn't want anybody to have to load and unload my car, but its the only way, there's no option, for insurance reasons i guess. but load and unload on both my going trip and on my return trip, they took quite good care of it and were really careful.

about my brakes, he said it's sticking.
i've had new brake pads and stainless steel brake lines sitting in my car for a few weeks but i haven't gone to get them all changed out yet.

and for my rotor, should i get my existing one's machined, or get new blanks??

Get a BBK!!!

Or if you dont have the scratch left over after the turbo then get some new slotted rotors.

Its all in the thread. The kit is in the title: SRT stage 2.75 kit. 870cc injectors are included in the kit. He listed the tranny cooler, and VB and sprag upgrades for the transmission. If he did internals I'm sure he would have listed them. Read the thread... its all there.

Oh... and thats a C-West body kit.
