I will post some pictures tomorrow, the paint is still drying. The bar looks much better in red than it did in black, just wished it was powder coated. The car is going on jack stands for three weeks on Thursday, lots of mods to do.

The cog drive is supposed to prevent belt slippage by using a tooth type belt instead of the typical belt style. There are pictures of the two types above. The main reason we install them is for the whine it produces. It lets people know you have something wicked under the hood and for them not to mess with you.

I went out today and purchased some more items to help me get the differential bushings out. I finally got them out with minimal damage to the differential. This mod has been hard than installing the supercharger by far.

I made a tool using a 1 5/8 socket and a 6" screw and some washers and a bolt. I was able to pull the center pieces out and then cut the metal lining and pounded it out. It took me a couple of hours to get them out and I don't ever want to have to do that again.

I will post pictures in a couple days. The parts to finish this mod come in tomorrow, going to try and finish on Saturday!

Almost done with rear suspension project.

BMR subframe and differential bushings,1" Lowering springs, Spohn trailing arms, sway bars and toe rod links. I think I'm done with the reared until j bite the coilover bullet. The rearen on this thing is very tight and easy to control once it starts to slip when over 500 hp is sent to the rear wheels.

Changed the differential gear oil today, the old oil was black! I used Redline since Royal Purple was not available.

The video shows that there is still some movement under hard acceleration and shifting. I will need to do before and after videos to show the difference. There is an improvement, I'm guessing that you need to spend the $700 if you want it completely gone. The bushing looks like jello when it does move, probably should have been a little harder.

The good news is that the differential looks solid in the video.
