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.

I'm thinking about doing bolt on's and a tune on this one. Anyone else with a SHO?:

Anybody got recommendations for rear coilover conversation set up?
My rear upper and lower control arm bushings are torn on my 86 coupe.
Currently have Q1A single adjustable shocks still want to use.
Have maximum Motorsports lower control arms to replace the old ones but doesn’t have the spring perch.

Don’t want to spend a fortune going to use it as my daily and hit the sac raceway to get seat time.

Send the links
Don’t know shit about spring rate so chime in
Car is stock right now with full interior.

Can't go wrong with Team Z and Strange:

I would do 12-200 for a street car.
