    Bolt on. A page back I posted 2 links, the first one is the write up for this setup.

    I didn’t change out the lines. I will eventually, just ran out of time to get them before install day.

    I guess I am the dweeb. I read somewhere, probably on this website lol, that the master cylinder was needed for them to work properly. After checking into other sources, it confirms what you have stated. It will work but your pedal won’t feel as firm.

    And now I could be reading some crazy threads, but I thought I read on here some people talking about a valve to help the fluid pressure for the rears if you convert to discs. Like it was something additional you would buy and somehow sandwich into the master. That thread is long dead since the original idea didn’t work out I think.

    Good stuff Murph. Can you get a couple pics of your skidplate so I can see the clearance between the pan and skid? A tape measure for reference would be awesome as well.

    No. I have never owned an AHP. Personally know two people that did that had issues. One went Lincoln and one went Everlast.
    I have the Vulcan. I definitely saved the box.

    I saved my Vulcan box for awhile but ran out of room and tossed it after a few months.

    Installed a smaller pulley on a URD rotrex s/c last night. 5 minute install. Wow. On my neighbor's 2TR. I wish it were that easy for the TRD owners.

    Yes. Pretty much remove belt from sc pulley, take five little hex bolts out, off with the old, on with the new and put the belt back on. so glad i went this route

    On the Rotrex s/c, it is a single bolt in the middle.

    2015 TRD Pro
    Magnuson SC, 2.5 pulley, OVTune 93 Handheld tune, FPR mod, AFE Intake, DTST w/Vibrant Hi-Flo cats, URD Y-pipe, 255 Deatschwerks, 76mm TB
    20180712_104000.jpg 20180712_104116.jpg
    So I got some dyno results that I wasn't expecting. Numbers are a bit underwhelming compared to similar setups but worse, Im running lean with both TRD and OvTune on 2.7 pulley, AFE Pro dry, DTST headers w/vibrant hi flo cats, URD ypipe, TRD CB, 76mm TB, 255 deats*** fuel pump.

    I think I need to do the FPR mod at least until I get a better tune. Was not expecting to be lean on the TRD tune. Prior to dyno, my speedhut gauge had been reading low 11s at WOT with that tune. His AFR sensor saw it different.

    **Pulls in 3rd gear**

    Elevation: 1000ft

    OVTune 93 - 310/322
    TRD tune - 305/314

    Also need to add that these numbers are the "corrected" numbers based on the dyno's corrections for weather conditions. The uncorrected OVTune max power was 320hp
