BMR K-Member installed
well last saturday night i finally got time to install the bmr k-member i ordered, overall quality and welds looked really good.
i did get a chance to weight both k-members
so around 30lbs total weight savings and the biggest upside is a lot more room to work with. the bmr k took half the time to install compared to removing the factory unit.
overall a well spent $500.00
well if you have the extra cash the get one but if not then a cam package might be a better choice.
also i ordered a stock style fiberglass hood and i will weigh both units to see weight loss, and a remove my battery from the front to the rear so total i should have lost around 100lbs off the nose since my last run at the track, hopefully i will see a 60' time improvement.
other changes since my 12.27 run were aluminum driveshaft, fix 2-3 shift point from 6,500rpm to 6,200rpm(big difference), and removed another 30+lbs from around the car

any pix of during installation, any recommendations for people doing the installation ?
hick-ups, stuff to avoid while doing it, where to best support the engine while removing the k-member.
would be nice to have more info ;-)
