I got off my lazy arse on Saturday afternoon and finally installed the set of front Project Mu Titanium brake shims and rear Intima SR pads to replace the Intima SS that were in there.

I haven't driven the car yet since I installed it all, but I'm hoping the shims stop some of the brake squeal at light to moderate braking and that the rear pads help balance the system a little so the fronts aren't doing such a large portion of the work.

Here's the shims that were on the pads before including that funny little half height one.

Those half shims are weird. I don't know how they would've been a good idea.
Did you use brake grease on the pins and edges of the pad?

The half shims are probably there to try and even out pad wear or something like that. By only covering a bit over half the area, it means the applied force will act more where the shim is. And not so much where it isnt.

Nah I didn't this time. I didn't have any laying around. The pins have a little bit of corrosion on them so I'll be ordering new ones and I'll grease everything appropriately when I replace them

That makes sense. It would also explain why the pads are a little bit more worn at the top than the bottom. Thanks for the explanation.

Just a guess. No idea if that is the proper reason.

Today I drove up to EFI Evolutions at Coffs Harbour so Matt could wire in my Wideband AFR gauge to the ECU and give the car it's final tune.

The wideband replaces the factory narrow band O2 sensor in the dump pipe and along with the AEM gauge narrow band output and the ECULabs software on the ECU I now have the ability to trigger a 'safe mode' when certain conditions are met. This is purely a safety feature in the event of a bad batch of fuel or something. I currently have the gauge it's self in the glovebox as I don't really need to see it all the time as the ECU is receiving information from it anyway.

New O2 sensor in place.

The final numbers.
