    Winter projects

    What do you guys have in store for you car over the winter. If I can get the money I will be doing a heads and cam package. I am looking for some ideas for interior work. The car will be in the garage so looking to do some nice appearance upgrades to the interior. Anyone with interior pics would be cool too.

    White faced gauges and a TCS plaque is all I have in my car.


    My car should be getting 4.30's over my 4.11's sometime this winter.
    Car never actually gets put up for winter. We get 60 degree days once in a while throughout winter, so I will warm it up and take it for a short drive.

    How hard are the gauges to install. I have seen those and like the look of them.

    I'm already working on installing my new 6 point roll cage from wolfe. Then start working on a tune with my new efi live. Then as we get closer to spring new tires.

    Took me roughly 20-25 minutes.
    Just take your time laying the overlays on....make sure you have them straight.

    Headers, cam and intake, take care of some little squeaks, figure out whats clunking in my rear suspension, and weld on my bolt on subframe connectors.

    it's probably your header length that's the problem, what kind do you have?

    hooker stainless super comps. they actually tuck very well. the y-pipe is two piece that i probably didnt put together perfect. i only scrape on this one speed bump, but is huge and there is no way around it. regular speed bumps i have no problem.

    May I recommend Strano springs?

    I 'upgraded' to them from ProKit springs and couldn't be happier.
