86 5tq brake problem SOLVED?

Looks like the prize goes to Scott.  This morning I heard the dreaded death
moan of a front wheel bearing on my favorite on-ramp.  Found it hard to
believe they'd be bad seeing that I replaced them once already (120k ago).
 Looks like all the hard cornering has taken its toll.  Just ordered one from
GPR for $38, seemed like a good price. I thought it might be a good idea to
repack the new one with syn. grease.  Seems like its common practice with
racers.  Comments?  By the way, do bearings usually make noise when loaded or
unloaded. - the bearing that is, not me

To all those who responded - THANKS!  I do torque my lug bolts to 110 Nm by

free.  I am having my new rotors drilled (maybe dimpled), plated and perhaps
slotted by a friend with a Bridgepost CNC mill.  

With all the waste- gate talk,  Is there any interest in an externally
adjustable WG housing.  Aforementioned  riend CNC'd me one with a knob on.
 Presto!  Dial a boost.  I may give mine a dash mounted adjuster just for


P.S. How 'bout the computer?  Stumped?
