turbos are much affected just as s/c right??? Turbo's are not nearly as affected by the altitude as are superchargers.... Turbo's just spin faster in the thinner air... Blowers are belt driven...

Yup, T, If you can get a price for four of them... two to the previous zip and two to Kyle.... somewhere in the upper Kenai or wherever he is.... I'm sure whatever the price is it'lll be fine... regardless of if it's two or 22 seats...

The altitude is about 5800 but starts to get worse as it gets warmer, I've seen as much as 9000 DA

The 12 year old in me comes out when I see this picture. Wax a toboggan, start at the top and see who gets to the bottom the fastest.

Gorgeous pictures.

I suppose. Maybe that's why I have been injured more in the past 6 years than in the entirety of my first 30 years.

I was just the opposite...

I almost broke the U.S. treasury via Air Force Hospitals when I was a kid... They used to threaten to name a Hospital ER after me...

Three trips to the ER in one day... for three seperate incidents... and that was just one day of many...

Ok,

Back on topic....


Seats are bought and paid for....

I want to thank T, Darth Emma, for getting me hooked up with Brandon at IPS MotorSports....

And IPS Brandon, for great customer service and an amazing price...

Here is the seat purchased... two of them, with the 5th strap slot for both, and double locking sliders....

PQ, Yes I went with Black... but I've got two options...

I can have leather inserts done to those in grey, or order 5 point harnesses in grey/platinum...

I think either way it will look great... In this seat, black is the only color leather available...

Thanks Keith...They'll look great in yours as well...

Nice. I think the grey inserts would be awesome, but with this build I think the 5 point harness is the better option.

May be silly question, but will these house the airbag? Or is that not an option.

Hey Garc,

The air bag will be gone... There is no provision for that... I'm hoping Corey can tune out any light that comes on for them being disconnected.... We'll see... If not, I'll have a lil red light on the dash for a while.... Maybe a black permenant marker will cover it.... lol... All of the other airbags stay intact, including the driver...

In my Freightliner I used to put black electrical tape over those pesky CELs.

True story.

Nope. Electrical tape. The vinyl stuff.

I say black because I have green, blue, red yellow and black at home.

OMG, I have it... We have no lie 300 MPH tape... We use it to bind together droop hoses from 1/2 inch to 5 inch in the derrick...

If you taped one of your friends to a metal pole with this stuff, they would be there until the pole rusted away.... You better set em up a catering deal...

No, it's second.... Chickens for the front porch are number 1... Any self respecting Bama Resident has three or four chickens around the porch...
