Default What ya workin on?

I am poor and not really doing anything to my car at the moment. Spent all my $$ on new heads a few months ago. I'd love to hear what someone else is doing to their car though. What ya got, stroker build, new cam, forged internals? Anything?

Not much left on the car to do. I do have a set of Jhonathan's 1.5 tint Halo's coming Friday. I didn't want to spend the $$$ only to have LE tell me to take them off so I;ve been running tinted covers. I've been stopped once and warned twice. The 1.5 tint should just take the hard red out of the lights and the LED setup should be bright enough to satisfy LE. I'd love to find a single disk clutch to replace the rattling RAM Dual I have in there now. It works great but I just hate the rattle.

Happy Thanksgiving Barn Folk!!!

I'm about 90% of the way through doing a partial wire-tuck, coil relocate, PCV/Catch Can mods and new inlet piping. Here's a few in progress pics;

Sweet, but I think your valve covers are missing a couple of bolts.
