Back to stock. We tried one step colder and it didn't like it in the mid RPM range.

Are they the same as stock? If so I would try them first. If you have issues the try one below stock (eg NKG11X have too look up the full number). And start the gap around 36.

Ican't wait to see this thing with a roll cage in it!

Me either. Had a delay on that because I forgot to take the backseat to them last time I was up there. Doing that this afternoon.

So you're going to keep the back seat? Is it still going to be useable?

Was it ever?

Yeah, going to keep it for now. I take it out when I go to the track because the slicks won't fit if I don't. Eventually I may buy one of the rear seat delete kits and be done with it. Just don't know because the car is a good place to store the seat when I'm not at the track. I would want to keep it for when I trade it in.

Well it can fit a small child. I've used the back seat to transport winter tires, not dr's :( the trunk is just useless.
Already thinking of trading it in!?

Not anytime soon. I have a few more things I want to try on it. However, I still want and C6 Z06 but I may forgo that if there is a new Buick GN with the LF3. Right now, I'm going to keep playing with this one and see how things develop over the next year or two.

Fab shop should be done towards the end of next week. Instead of putting it on they dyno right away we decided I should just drive it around with the heavy oil in it for a couple of weeks just to make sure the rings are seated well. Bear with us for a few more weeks.
