We can flip rotate phones instead. Looks like a show car setup with so much chrome. What is the combination?

Nah, not a show car. In fact, the outside is pretty rough. One step at a time. It's just the headers that are chrome. The valve covers are the semi-polished aluminum SVE from LMR. I needed something to clear the rockers since the stock ones weren't quite there.

Dart big bore 347, AFR 195 heads and Holley Systemax intake. Putting my little V-3 back on as well. Should be a fun drive. I hit up Modern Driveline for the TKO600 with carbon syncros and all accompanying parts.

Can't wait to get it going!

Are SVE parts any good? I heard many SVE parts are lower and quality imported.

[worship] your combo is going to be wild.

I'm not too sure. The valve covers seem to be of good quality. The only other SVE parts I've used are the firewall adjuster and quadrant combo. Both of those work just fine.

Yesterday I attempted and I guess succeeded on putting new foam and seat covers on my 86 seats. I prefer turning wrenches over doing that job any damn day.

I installed a set of seat heaters and katzkin leather cover kit on my previous dd (2013 subaru forester).

I invented new curse words that day, and my finger tips were seriously messed up the whole weekend. That final stretch to get the seatback snapped into place and the zippers up...fuck Idk if I'd ever do that again.

Lmao I’d do a motor swap over a recover any fucken day! My fingers hurt for like two days trying to get everything nice and tight. When the damn rod broke thru that fucken guide to hold it down had me pissed. I had to pretend I knew how to sew and put the guides from the old covers.

Just re-torqued the lower. Now I get to wire the wideband into the ECM.

I need to buy some new front speakers, my extremely old separates are finally starting to fail.

I thought I read somewhere that you get clearance issues with those brakes. True?

From what I’ve read they will fit under pretty much all 18” rims.

Thanks Nick I’ll try at .035” I think I have too much of a gap I just don’t really know how to calculate or whatever you need to do to choose spark plus gap.
