Finally put my shifter in. This had been laying around the shop since before i got the car, jsut kept forgetting! install was easy. The instructions were very good. I did have a rattle problem though. I ended up putting a nylon type washer on the jam nut to the shifter ball and I put teflon tape on the post that the handle installs too. Rattles are gone and it shifts perfect. Reminds me of the Pro 5.0 i have in my IROC. Very solid shifting and there is no mistaking that you are in gear. I now longer grind on fast 1-2 shifts.

Great story, very well written. I am thinking of joining the e-force club myself. Love the wheel/tire combo. The tread patten looks great.

Not sure what your wheel finish but on my stock wheels, I waxed the finish and the brake dust is super easy to clean off.

Thanks! The rear tires are Nitto NT05R drag radials. The fronts are the stock tires that were on the rear.

Well if 530 RWHP wasn't enough, I installed a customer blower cam from JRE, springs and 65lb Injectors. Install went smooth. Limped it up to the shop for a re-tune. She didnt idle very well.

Just wondering? What was that smoke puffing out the exhaust on the top end?
Valves floating maybe?
I noticed it also on the earlier Dyno but it was not as intense.

I love those shots looking from the rear fender up the side. It just looks so muscular. What can I say? I'm an ass man!

It looks like you're trying to stay on the conservative side with the exterior, which is great because that car really doesn't need the wild body kits and huge deep dish wheels to look good. I think it would look awesome if you got just the GM factory front lip spoiler and left it black. It would look especially good with it lowered the way you've got it.

Me likey!
