1999 twin turbo Dakota R/T
Chuck's truck as seen with SDCE built 360 cid.
Has run a best of 121mph in the quarter with only 10pis on street trim.
Truck has mild street manners with oem quality SDCE turbo kit installed.
SDCE Twin turbo kit fits R/T's,
Dakota's, Rams 5.2L and 5.9's.
Dodge Dakota 360 M1 intake!
Finally got the truck back together again with the M1 intake and
aftermarket valve covers. Looks alot better, can't wait to see what it
does on the road!!
'93 Dodge Dakota 3.9L - 1/4mi
My first ever run with the Dakota 3.9L down the drag strip. I had
extremely bad wheel hop and spin 1st, 2nd , and 3rd gear. Truck has a built
naturally aspirated 3.9L V6 5-speed manual and a detroit locker. More mods
than I care to fully list here.best time of the day was a 15.677 (this run
is a 15.8) Its definitely faster
than that but I have never ran down the strip before this so I did kinda
crappy and desperately need traction bars!!
LSX Shootout True Street Class 2009
Memphis, TN. (October 17, 2009) The final results are in from the 3rd
Annual GM Performance Parts LSX Shootout during the 2009 NMCA World Finals
at Memphis Motorsports Park (Memphis, TN). East Coast Superchargings Doug
Ring took top honors while competing in the GM Performance Parts True
The NMCA True Street LSX Class featured more than 120 highly-modified
LSX-powered street cars that are certified street-legal and required to
complete a 30-mile course through the streets around Memphis. True Street
is designed for stock-chassis or back-half type vehicles running 10.5-inch
wide tires. All vehicles must be registered, licensed, and insured. Any
year vehicle without any restrictions on power adders are allowed to
compete. Following the 30 mile cruise, competitors were required to make
three consecutive passes, without opening the hood or topping off the fuel
Doug Ring, co-owner of East Coast Supercharging (ECS), traveled more than
36 hours round trip to attend the shootout. He said what could be a more
effective way to showcase what we do than to come out and put it all on the
line at what is considered the premier LSX Street Car shootout in the
nation? Rings car, a 98 Corvette convertible, is prepared with a GM LS2
stroked to 402ci and pumped up by an ECS Supercharging System utilizing a
Paxton Novi 2000 head unit. I drive the car on the street quite often, and
I have logged more than thirty 8-second passes on the set up. The majority
of the event was business as usual. Doug made three consecutive passes of
8.86, 8.81 and 9.05 for an average of 8.91, besting the competition by more
than a half-second. Forty-five minutes later, Doug swapped his DOT tires
for a pair of slicks, tweaked the tune a bit, and clicked off an ET of
8.63, setting a new world record for late-model supercharged Corvettes.
Doug would like to thank Paxton Superchargers and American Racing Headers. Pfadt
Race Engineering was also a huge reason for the very quick times while
utilizing an IRS-style setup. Pfadt put together a suspension that applies
the power to the ground consistently and lives under the rigors of street
driving. As fast as it is, the car is easy to drive. On the street or at
the track, the car is stable and still comes off the line incredibly well
while holding the 60-foot drag racing record for a late model Corvette with
an IRS suspension, proclaimed Doug.
East Coast Supercharging is a full service LSX performance shop and
manufacturer of supercharging systems for late-model Corvettes and 5th
generation Camaro. ECS

How To Diagnose and Replace a Rear Caliper Using an Infrared Thermometer -EricTheCarGuy
How To Diagnose and Replace a Rear Caliper Using an Infrared Thermometer
shows how to use an infrared thermometer to find a bad caliper. This method
will also work on front calipers as well. Earlier this year ScannerDanner
was visiting the shop and after we came back from a drive in my 2004 Honda
Element, we smelled overheated brakes. The smell seemed to be coming from
the right rear caliper. Upon further investigation, using an infrared
thermometer, I found that that caliper had seized up and needed to be
replaced. I've done brake videos like this in the past but never went
through this particular diagnostic procedure to figure out what the issue
was. It's a method you can use for many other mechanical issues as
temperature diagnosis is something that is used throughout the service and
repair fields. It's a fast and easy alternative to taking things apart for
diagnosis. I hope it's able to help you should you run into similar issues
with your own vehicles.
