Speedster,
Note, I would like to be in the line requesting a "ride of terror." I hope that puts me on dry land.

BTW, dropped my baby off this morning...

Some interim updates.

Fuel System:
Pic 1: The SST fuel lines. Two complete fuel systems each has a -10 feed, and a -8 return. One vent tube for each system.
Pic 2: Running the lines up for the passenger side bulkhead (primary 8 injectors) to the engine compartment
Pic 3: Running the lines up for the drivers side bulkhead (secondary 8 injectors) to the engine compartment

I do not claim to be an expert in any way, but in that last pic... aren't the fuel lines a little close to that tire?

They are the highest quality Braided Stainless Steel....and we are going to add some shielding.

No worries...

Off Topic - Here is a pic one my friends just sent referring to the SST and the Firebird...lol

More interim stuff:

Rear Suspension...

Pic 1: Rear subframe, rear view. Pfadt solid subframe bushings. Custom drag coilovers. Spohn Lower control arms with Delrin Bushings.

Pic 2: Rear subframe, front view. Pfadt solid subframe bushings, Spohn tubular rear toe links and trailing arms with Del-Sphere bushings. Was really hoping BMR or Spohn had the upper control arms by now, but they are not available quite yet, but Brandon at IPS FedEx'd overnight some Pfadt upper control arm bushings (not yet installed in this pic) that have since been installed - Thanks Brandon !

Pic 3: Lower Control Arm - JUST clears the 18" max offset rim, but is too close for comfort so we are going to notch in the control arm and install a shorter Grade 8 bolt.

I think that happens when your tire is half the size of the car!
