    Third Time is a charm!

    Decided that since this was my third F-Body, I would go all the way with this and try and do it right. I've bought the turbo kit from Joel at OFI. So far what I have listed below is what I've gotten installed on the car except the OFI kit but I still have to figure which fuel system to use, which route to tune it, what gages to use, and how to get the ride height even so it doesn't look like a 4x4 lol

    That is a serious setup! 3-bar SD FTW. That kit looks incredible. I'd look towards some solid motor mounts with that DP being so close. I didn't see an Alkycontrol meth kit on the list

    lol no, I'm still waaaaaay cheaper than just buying the vette itself. Now add the vette on top of what I'm building now then I would be seeing divorce papers! when are we modding that turd of yours

    It's definitely going to be a learning experience once I start driving it lol I got the rear and fuel lines out today along with getting all the accessory bracket, mounts, and sensors on the motor but as my luck would have it, I'm missing a couple of bolts but no big deal. I got the QA1s installed but the paint I have on the calipers and brackets aren't worth a crap so I said screw it and dropped them off to get powder coated. I'm hoping that I can start it here in a month but only time will tell

    You are better off getting them powdercoated no doubt.

    That will just add to my bill of getting every other bracket and covers on my car done lol You wouldn't happen to know where I can buy new Black lipped torque thrust II's at would you or anyone else on here? I want the 17x9.5 up front and 17x11s for the rear and too many people have the Zr1s and Im not paying over 3K for FISKEs lol I need them for cruising. I'll have bogarts for the strip
