Stopped by Blu808 this afternoon to see what was going on. Cam went in today, along with replacing the valve springs, retainers, push rods, etc. Blower will be going on tomorrow! Took a look at the exhaust setup and can wait to hear it! Ran into an issue with the OD cog drive. Didn't know that you need to get a modified fuel rail, so its not gunna go on for now. Need to call on Monday and find out what the extra cost will be; I might decide to just go with a standard 1:1 cog drive....besides that everything is coming along great!

Here's some pics:

Josh,

When I was over there, I noticed that your passenger side, rear end link was bent. Did you get new ones with your new sway bars? I'd highly recommend getting some if you didnt!

I have my original rear end links if you need them sort term. They are easy to install and I highly recommend you go with aftermarket ones for the rear sway.

I have the Spohn ones, they are much stronger than the skinny stock ones. The one thing that you have to keep in mind is that if you hit a curb with beefed up suspension, you are going to bend the frame since the weakest link will suffer. I have the fronts also, I removed them because they were making too much noise for me. I'm going to try them one more time now that the car has settled a bit. Is you car done yet?

I had a guy call in sick this weekend so I stayed here all night to get the car done for you.

It is 3:26am and your car runs. She sounds great with that LG cam.

Bring your stock intake since the roto-fab one doesn't fit with the tvs

There are several camaros with the rotofab and tvs setup, perhaps you guys can find out what it takes to make it work. You will need to retune if you change the intake box later. Your car is going to kick aSS. Bring it to the meeting this Friday!

Are you going with a 160 thermostat? What about plugs? Post some videos of the car camming when you get a chance.

Rotofab makes a specific kit for the maggie. Im guessing you dont have the one molded for this.

The $99 for this kit is well worth it and much cheaper than a retune. I suggest that you order one prior to your tune.
