    25lbs might be enough, It depends on how bad it is. Really bad cars Ive had to go over them once or twice, and consume a box, box and a half. Some cars I can get away with half a box. Im working something out with a local supplier to get it in 50lb bags, and stock up on it as its a lot cheaper than Harbor Freight blasting media.

    You also need the FINE grit, not the COARSE one...that is too big.


    Why didnt you just bring your car here? We were doin a promo for $499 including new intake gaskets. You will need to crank the motor by hand to close the valves that are open, so you can do those cylinders as well.
    Thanks Matt, great info! I wanted to save some cash because I've been having alignment/stability issues lately that I'm trying to sort out. Amongst several other parts, I just dropped some more cash on new rear sub-frame bushings (Powerflex replacements). Thinking about possibly outsourcing that installation job though, as I want to get it aligned at the same time anyway, which I obviously cannot do (cough). Click here to enlarge

    I know, don't tell me...unfortunately there are always people doubting everything, in particular in Germany.

    Indeed, and that's the reason why I steer away from german forums, sadly.

    BTW we should plan a trip to the Ring to put the new found power to use Click here to enlarge

    I just did 8 laps on Sunday. Not too full, great weather. You should do the track day in August.
