It's a freaking winter wonderland up here after last night's snow. At least it's nice and dry and easy to shovel.

Happy New Years Guy's! Here's a sneak peak at a firewall coil pack mount from JS Powersports Machine for a couple of 1st Gen's were working on. Valve cover coil pack mounts are currently in development too.

What are you running for master cylinders on the 69's. I'm need at least a 1" bore for the 6 piston bears, but also want to do a hydo clutch.

I'd have to check, but there all standards.

Surlie Brewing

My buddy Tim just opened a brand new craft brewery today in Abbotsford. So I volunteered my services as an assistant brewer today. Kinda like Green Stone Brewery, just a larger scale.

Thought you would like that. We had a TV crew there for the day as well. Talked to the Big J and we used Wilwood stuff for clutch and brake masters cylinders in those Camaro's we did.

The set up we used has 3 master cylinders, two for the brakes and one for the clutch. Uses a adjustable rod between the brake cylinders rather then proportioning valve. Requires firewall modification and comes complete with pedals.

But seriously Folk's got to get back to work on Pumpkin. Parts are piling up, Rhino prepared intake, Vmax PTB, my own copy of EFI Live with Rhino support and a fresh Hammerhead re-geared to 4:10. THX DSS.
Ken from Straddle Craft is working His magic with a IOM painted rear diffuser, Vararam CAI and few other odd's and ends.

But first Dutchman Customs has a V6 auto coming in for a 3:91 SS diff conversion with shaft and axels by DSS. Frank and the DSS crew should be shipping the Goodies soon. Got to get it all done before I jet off to Texas.

But in the mean time I had a little time to help out Surlie Brewing bottle the first bottles to go to the Beer Store.

Not to mention we have had back to back snow fall weekends to boot.

One of the coldest and high snow fall values in a long time for the first days of March, I'll need some time in the Texas sun to warm up.

It appears I won a chance to buy a COPO in the GM Performance COPO lottery.

Were back to work on Pumpkin installing the Rhino prepared manifold, Vmax PTB, GM heater hose relocation kit an SLP UDP and Rhino tune. Things went fairly well removing the manifold except those stupid little green safety locks on the injectors, man there a pain and the clamps at the heater core are a bit difficult even with the cable driven clamp remover. All set to put it back together this morning once I stop at Straddle Craft to pick up the freshly painted IOM manifold cover and rear diffuser. Once the manifold and heater hose relocation kit is done, then it's out with the rad and off with the balancer for the UDP installation. Take note of the back two manifold bolts with the duct tape, you will have to do that on the way and way in with the manifold.
