    Hello everybody. I'm dropping in again for the first time in a long time. I know this is slightly older than what's generally found in this thread, being socket 771 based- but I just got it working last night. After installing windows updates all night, its scored mind 1200s in Cinebench R20. Its a pretty neat system. I'm going to be using it for tethered Lightroom shooting, and running Cura for tethered 3D printing with my Ender 5+.
     
    Specs:
    2x Xeon X5460 @ stock clocks
    12GB of Fully Buffered 667 Mhz DDR2
    MSI GTS 450 (hopefully upgrade to an RX480 after a bios update)
    Windows 8.1 Pro (this just happened to be the first install disk I found)

    Do not cross any borders with cannabis product. Thats trafficking even if its legal on both sides of the given border. Big no-no

    owner of gen 4 LS vehicle. DOD deleted. Runs fucking mint after getting rid of the cyl deactivation. With an upgraded cam and a leveling kit, the average fuel economy went from 14.4 to 14.3. Screw that noise. Made it 226,000 before having an AFM lifter fail. The updated valve cover for sure helped with oil consumption.

    Supercabs would probably be my favorite (quad cabs look nice but make the truck too long IMO) look for a truck. But a properly done single cab can look nice. Hell the old Lightnings even manage to make stepsides look acceptable sometimes.

    The Model A is out of the barn and ready to head to the garage for a little winter love!
     

     

     
    Ignore the piss poor tie down method, those are just there so it wouldnt roll off the trailer while moving it around in the barn.

    I haven’t done any internal engine work myself but here’s why- top bearing sees a lot more pressure than the bottom bearing. Bottom bearing is only under load pushing the piston/rod back up- peak load for that bearing being the comression stroke. Top bearing has to deal with the combustion stroke and the assotiated immense pressure of that explosion. I’m curious as to what effect the coating will have. I’ve never much liked the idea of coatings because they wear off, but it is still cool to see. If they start spinning that engine real fast I bet hes gonna put the coated bearing on bottom too.

    Oh boy, Long time been away, but for those few Focus ST boys on here, Update on my Racecar build. 

    So After getting more power I decided to do some Handling. XYZ Top Track suspension.


    car was given a 60mm Drop. 


    After that I was able to Destroy my Front brakes at a Track day doing a shakedown of the suspension. New Ceramic Blend Zonelli SP500 Brake pads with There S6 Discs added. 


    Also Was having some Pedal issues at the track as the stock ones are frankly just to small. So Quick call to our OMP Dealers and Some epic new pedals were sent out 


    Car All Ready we were Getting ready for another Even when Disaster (Or the human Factor struck) And my Spotter wasn't consentrating during Trailer loading and the car went right off the front, Smashing the undertray, Radiator mounts, Intercooler and a fkn expensive Zunsport Front grill to bits... 


    So Checking it still held boost (Thankfully it did) we got the old grill out, cut some cooling holes and got it back on the trailer and ready to go racing. 



    Ended up Been an amazing weekend, Two days of racing, while I was getting massively heat soaked on the back straight and unable to break 200km/h, The car was amazing on the midfield and had a great time.
