No real updates to be had other than the fact that i did an oil change over the weekend. Now i am debating on what CAM to get.... Need to talk to my tuner and get a game plan going.

Well my end links came in and I got the new sway bars installed. The front was a bit of a pain but it came out and went back in after some rough housing and had to jack the motor up an inch or two.

Lastly here is my buddy pulling out the old LCA to swap it out. (This is the guy that helped me get my car. He has a '96 Impala SS with a built 385ci Stroker and D1SC, and a 2000 Z28.... a true car guy.)

Just a quick update....

With the new sway bars in the ride is still great (close to stock) but the handling is AMAZING! I love driving to work in the morning and practically every chance I get. The only issue that I have is the fact there are a lot of Prius's that drive slow as crap through all of my favorite twisties. Aside from that minor inconvenience, this sway kit is a fantastic addition to the car.... now.... Do i want a Cam or Wheels....

Talked to Clint @ AIR and decided on the cam and placed the order. Now I just need to see about some alternate transportation during the install. In a couple months I will also be doing fuel system upgrade and a lower pulley for more boost!

Ok... so I still have not had time to get the CAM installed. But instead.... I am going to my tuners shop and ordering the Lingenfelter Twin Fuel Pump and new pulley kit from Vortech. With that said... I will be done with the HP/TQ mods and start building up my driveline and other supporting mods.....

I had to because of the new ZL1 style sways. The endlinks attach at a different point. The old style dont have the mounting point that I needed.

Just a long process. He has about 10-20 cars lined up between tunes and installs and only 2 other guys working with him...
