Rear suspension buttoned up today, picked up the billet caps from the machine shop as well.



The fuel pump is in too. LPE has great instructions, still took a little bit if fiddling, great product.

Some more parts headed my way today; Single Stage Nitrous from Nitrous Express, OD Cogs, and a 10 rib drive from LPE with 6% overdrive. That much closer to being done

Very cool..... can't wait to see this beast at Bandimere!

Going with a roll bar I presume..... or waiting for new rule clarification?

Thanks! Super Chevy should be fun this year, can't wait to see you out there.

Hoping that the new rule means that the roll bar is a no go, but we will see. I bet you're hoping too! Supposedly, it sounds like we will be ok, but a bar will be in order if needed.

FYI: Qoute from CCOTR facebook page last week - I'm keeping fingers crossed, but not sounding good from 1st talk with John Bandimere III

I spoke with Bandimere Speedway today and they too have questions. January 12th there is a meeting they are attending to clarify things - until then, it's anybody's guess. I would think from a safety aspect, the body itself and all the airbags intact would be the issue along with OEM front tie rods. I posed the question about aftermarket superchargers ahead of time. Camaro SS models can be ordered with a supercharger (SLP, Callaway, Lingenfelter, Berger, etc. etc.), or you can buy the exact same supercharger and have a dealer install it. One question posed was "can the wheels and/or tires be different"...... not a good sign of progress. I've got stronger suspension, wheels, better braking, etc than a ZL1 - so you would think that would matter (maybe not). On the other hand, totally stock at Mile-Hi elevation and nothing whatsoever changed including tires on the powerful ZL1..... below 11.5 might be a mute point and just a feel good NHRA rule. Cross your fingers everyone!

No kidding! I feel that a 10 second 5th gen sans roll bar is way safer than a 10 second fox body with a roll bar. But who knows, the NHRA can be finicky.

1. Are you shooting a wet kit?
It looks like it. You will tax that LPE pump quickly. No way it'll support a 150. Be careful.

2. Where are you mounting that bottle?

Yep wet shot, 150 is the max I'll go, will definitely depend on the fuel situation. I'm going to mount the bottle in the trunk, I'm deciding whether or not to use the specific mount from Nitrous Outlet or just strapping it to the floor. Hopefully I can get away with some fueling being at 5500ft!

I am looking at spraying a small shot on my Maggie car. I have the 1/2" spacer under my Maggie, the ported tub and at this point the NW102. It looks like you have the same plans. If I understand correctly you can not use a nitrous plate since the hood will have issues closing. How and where do you plan on installing the nitrous port?
