Update: Bianca is getting new shoes.

I took Bianca in to get different tires put on. In the process the decided to scratch 3 of my wheels.
After working with them they agreed to get them fixed at the person of their choosing. I went ahead and sent the 4th wheel of (at my expense) to fix a couple little rock chips and so they all matched. A WEEK later (not 2 days like promised) I went to pick up my wheels and my pretty Polished Aluminum wheels were painted Gray.

It took 2.5 more weeks and 3 different Supervisors, along with their insurance company to get them to pay for new wheels. GM chagred roughlt $745 per Polished Aluminum wheel. That a bill of over $3,505. Along with mounting and balancing fees this equaled a check to me in the amount of $3,638. I will update as soon as new wheels and tires are mounted.

I finally decided it was time for a cam. To go with the 231/243 can I'm having my heads done by PRC and doing a FAST intake.

Complete Mod List...
231 243 .61x .62x on a 113 LSA
PRC Stage 2 Heads
Dual valve springs with titanium retainers
Hardened pushrods
FAST Lsxr Intake
FAST fuel rails
Motortron 60lb Injectors
Tuneable Vararam intake upgrade
C5R timing chain
Melling oil pump
ARP Bolts
LS7 Lifters



Install will be done by me at a nice slow pace. No hurry as heads will take roughly 2 weeks.

Photos will be added throughout process.
