    I called TSP and told them my plans; They stated SINCE I was changing from the 98 lifters to the new standard lifters, I was going to have to compensate for the new lifters being slightly longer..........They said the common size they use to attain proper valve train geometry (w/stock heads) were the 7.350's........

    ..that is an amazing job..however i think it would be easier to drop the whole front frame section from underneath ...engine and all... if I ever had to do all that work...would have to have a hoist..

    Thanks for the support!!!! Yeah, your suggestion WOULD have made this job WAY easier BUT I did not have the funds nor the equipment to do it this way! My car initially was taken apart IN my garage SO that's what I had to work with. Which made this process so difficult BUT rewarding at the same time now that it's finished............

    Alright here's a video y'all!!!!! It involves a start up and slight rev (only to 2500rpms, maybe) IMO it sounds good and 33-36 seconds in you can really hear the "raspy" exhaust note via the rev!! Please share your thoughts.........(also let me know what you think about the stainless steel Z28 badging on the lower right side & middle of my bumper.....I think it's a nice touch......

    Actually I don't have an answer for that YET......To be honest I've babied it since the install finalization and have been more cautious about leaks, and making sure my header bolts are re-tightened etc.....BUT I plan to open it up soon. BUT I also need a tune, SO that's kinda what I think should happen BEFORE I go balls to the wall. That way everything is working together efficiently......
