Hotchkis chassis max. Exhaust is too big with spacer kit and i cant bring the brace lower than the exhaust. Ryan is talking with hotchkis. Maybe make the piece to go over exhaust?

SRyan, Yes I have different engine. To make a long story short....Ted replaced engine and cam pkg. He really stepped up and proved he stands behind his work. I will tell you whole story at next show or cruise or get together.

He is off thurs and fri. Let me know if you find something. I think Ryan said the
SLP brace wont work either. Car sits a little lower now so gotta watch clearance.

Hey everyone, I finally found a die cast of my ride . . .however on a side note, I think I made a mistake by buying a limited edition car. I am thinking of selling it since I don't want to drive it much or put the mods on that I want for fear of ruining any value.

Things can always be put back to stock....Ask me how I know! As for mileage, fuggetabautit, you have a limited edition. Will miles lower the value, sure but not that much.

Troy, don't know how long you plan on keeping the car, but I wouldn't worry about the value/modding as long as you enjoy the car and plan on keeping it.

I agree, enjoy the car, with any mod's you like. If your thinking to re-sell in future to regain the cost being an special edition, if you follow or watch the auctions, extreme low miles does not men good returns unless the car is older, say 10 years or so

Love the die cast.

Troy, are you looking to trade up to the Hot Wheels edition? Would like to have one of those myself.

Really like that hood. Can't remember if that's the Sinister or MPD1 hood.

That is the MPD1 Hood. The Sinister scoop is straight across while the other has the same contour as the SS mailslot.

Quick question for you guys. I am replacing my hub on the front end of my 2001 Impala. I have done some research for torque specs and some are saying 118 ft lbs and others are saying 159 ft lbs so I am not sure. So what I am thinking of doing is setting my torque wrench to 118 and see if it clicks and then jump it up to 159 and see if it clicks. Do you think this would be an alright way to figure out which torque spec I need to go with before taking it off and putting on the new one? Also, you guys heard any thing good/bad about using Precision Hub Assembly? O'Reilly didn't have Timken.

I go by that that track all the time by train. Drool every time thinking of running there. More heads up time is needed next time if you could. Will be going by there later today 6-9 ish. Hope to see lots of rubber in the corners. Will give a "toot" if I see you guys still there. I went to the link and see there is another in Sept.
