Thanks again Don! Talked to Justin and the measurements have been taken and the prototype is currently being made. We expect it too take two weeks minimum to design and undergo testing.

On another note I just purchased a take off camaro ss driveshaft. One less part needed for my ss rear swap. And my BMR extreme anti-roll kit should be delivered tomorrow. It will be close but I should be able to finish all my projects, do some paint work and get her tuned over the dyno in time for Camaro Nationals & Camaro Fest VII.

Just received a surprise from Jason in the mail; JacFab Forged Rods with ARP bolts. Just need to get the forged pistons from Diamond and the Darton sleeves.

I'm hoarding a lot of parts now at my place on campus lol. I just purchased a 3.91 diff with red BMR brushings from camaro5 member BFASTNOTLAST. He also included a new posi unit and 3.45 gear set. I also had a 2012 ss driveshaft delivered on Thursday. Ill be dropping Inferno off on Monday to get the BMR anti-roll kit installed and have the roto-fab w/w reservoir kit removed.

Only 21 days in 2017 so far and a lot of progress on the build!

BMR Extreme anti-roll kit has been installed! So far it is on the softest setting which is 432% stiffer over the stock sway bar. I also decided to purchase a BMR sway bar for the front instead of just removing the stock piece all together; ordered last night through BCS. Just messing around in the campus parking lot with all nannies off, rear drags at 30psi (NT555R), brake boosting and launching at 2200rpm she hooks so much better! The rear end does not kick out like she has been the last few months, however, that could have been due to the tires being at the end of their life. Only down side is the amount of noise coming from the rear now.

I also believe I have a small vacuum leak. After I drive and put inferno in park it sounds like the engine is 'struggling to breathe'. The rpms go up and down and the boost gauge fluctuates between -17 to -21 psi. This occurs for about 10-15 seconds then returns to a normal idle. I will contact JE and try to get in this upcoming week to have them look over the build and conduct a smoke test.

I have also been talking with tlavoie87, Justin (BCSauto) and Will (Overkill) on the fueling issue. So as most people know especially within the LFX and LLT community, we have two fuel pumps, the HPFP and the intake fuel pump. Dropping in a ZL1 fuel pump takes care of the fueling needs up to about 500-520rwhp depending on the setup and fuel being used. At this point the HPFP is maxed out. The 3 solutions we have determined are the following; meth, custom HPFP or a secondary fuel setup. The best method would be getting a HPFP made for high horsepower applications; however, it looks to be 3k for 30% increase in fueling and 5k for 60%. Thus I will be following MagnumForceGB and go the secondary fuel setup route. At this moment I am in touch with Justin on sourcing the parts and getting an estimate, in addition to a few other projects that are currently being worked on.

The secondary setup should help with keeping the intake valves cool and clean, along with keeping up with your massive fuel demands. Can't wait to see it !!

I have the ss driveshaft. I made a deal with a member on camaro5 for the ss axles and wheel hubs. Just need to pay them and the deal with BFASTNOTLEAST is good. He is waiting to ship it out when he receives his new diff. I also need to send payment to BFASTNOTLAST.
