I will get the # for you, but if you get the last digit wrong you end up with an upper radiator hose!

First mods of the off season.
Swapped the factory tensioner pulley for a billet pulley. Thanks for member bmbbl be for letting me buy this nice Metco billet pulley.
Before

After


Replaced my dipstick with a Lokar unit.


If you ever do this the anchor bolt hole must be enlarged ever so slightly.


That's all for right now, next up a small job to replace the Hurst shifter bushings.

A few things since my last posting.

I changed out my shifter bushings.

Finally I have an SS on my grill again, haven't had one there since the heritage grille went on.

I also started the suspension work, I installed BMR one inch lowering springs, sway bar, end links and the reinforcement for the lower control arm end link attachment point which I got from Apex Motorsports.





I still have front springs, sway bar and end links to do, plus my headers are shipping from Jet Hot this Monday. I have a couple of other things going on but you will just have to wait for those.

Probably an email tune from Ted, but now that I know he does alignments I may get that email tune in person.

You would get better gains from a dyno tune anyway. Since your not that far you might aswell make the best of your mods and just do it!!

I asked Ted what kind of tune I should get. He said with my mods all I need is the SCT Tuner and his tune. A dyno tune is more for cars with cams, FI etc. So I could do it by mail/email but I want to visit his shop anyway so I will get the SCT and his tune in person and get an alignment too.

Clear Image Jet Hot ceramic coated headers installed.
They slid right in, a really great fit. I don't even have the car jacked real high. Last photo in post #88 shows
how high.
I am really impressed with these headers, 304 SS, long straight runs of tubes with minimal mandrel bends and a solid flange.
Thanks to Josh at OTTP for offering these at an unbeatable price!





Just waiting on the cats and o2 extensions.

Thanks Tim, I still have to do the other one, but I learned a lot from doing the first one. The other one should look even better and take much less time.

Which cats did you order? Ones from Josh? I've been bugging him for weeks about getting a set. When I picked up my headers from him, I got clamps and o2 extensions, but wasn't sure yet which dia cats to go with.
