The good news is almost none of them got trapped in the car and burned alive. Most of them were thrown violently from the car.

well, I'm going to be pulling the heads to get sent off for porting and valve job, changing out the cam, and dropping the trans to change out the torque converter for a custom FTI 3800 hard hit nitrous stall. I'll most likely be doing the work myself, depending on how close it is to tx2k14.

This whole process will take me about a weekend, or two depending on how long it takes to get the heads back. You all are more than welcome to help or watch

pedders makes some really good stuff i just found out pfadt makes a 'drag' sway bar, and it isnt 800$. To my surprise its only $300! bmr wants over $400 for theirs.. i might just pick that upinstead for my rear swaybar.

So, no one heard anything if the Coastal As & Rods car show is tomorrow? Historically, it's the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, but I can find nothing published this year for it.

Finally I found something! http://www.kztv10.com/videos/coastal...-this-weekend/
