It's a well known issue. Your clicking will likely come back in a few thousand miles.

Check to see that your brake pads are inserted correctly. The metal shim scraping against the rotor will make this noise. I, sadly, know this from personal experience.

Staggered looks better. 20/25. Garageline makes nice spacers.

Spacers are an inexpensive cosmetic upgrade for those of us who don't have $1,000+ to spend on new wheels.

Two piece rotors are nice if you want to save some rotational weight.

IMHO, if you're not racing, stick with the stock Akebono pads. They are very good. I tried some aftermarket pads and was...

It is a violation of Federal and state law to remove your catalytic converter. Therefore, my guess is the tuner could be fined under VA law for tuning your car.

I am neither amused or bewildered. Just sad that you would do this to something other than a Civic.

Random misfires can be a lot of things. The MAF, O2 sensors, the spark plugs, ignition coils, and bad gas.

I'd start by adding a fuel cleaner with your next tank of gas. Sometimes that helps.

If you are getting misfires to a specific cylinder, it's either the spark plug or the ignition coil.

FWIW, when an ignition coil goes bad you will know. Your engine will run incredibly rough.

Agreed. Ignition coils do not all fail at once. When a coil fails, you will get a misfire in a specific cylinder.

It sounds like the MAF or the O2 sensors.

An opinion? Sure... They look nice and are very expensive unless you live down under.

For that kind of money, I'd go with two-piece rotors.
