yeah thats ok i dont have any money.

and on the topic of painting bumpers and such ive rarely seen items that have paint that actually stay nice without spider cracking and chipping easily. a lot aftermarket paint jobs suck balls IMO, even 'quality' body shops fail a lot of the time from what ive seen.

Just an update...

Things Purchased:
Eaton M62 w/ GMS2 hub. Comes with 3.0", 2.8" and Stock size pulley that will bolt up. Also will come with a new coupler incase in needs rebuilt down the line.
Intake manifold w/ dual pass
Option B Tank
Hoses
Intercooler pump and mount
Stock Heat Exchanger
Cobra Heat Exchanger (Running Both)
LSJ Ported TB
Siemens 60# Injectors

Things Needed:
Step Colder Plugs
Spacer for Meth Kit (Will come after card is up and running)
2.5 bar Map sensor in order to read my IAT2s (Should stay below 130-140 )

Everything is going to the powder coater this week before installing in October. Going to be running a 2.9" Pulley with mild tune... guessing to be around 250-260whp.

Also my dad was able to get my JBP Vortex header welded up for free So that was a score. It's going on with a ZZP 2.5" Catted Downpipe to a stock LSJ exhaust and Dynomax muffler.

Exciting

Anybody have any hook-ups for some Dexron VI?

blowa?!

what happened to the turboooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Re: Omaha and surrounding area's... (clean)

For the power that i want out of the car this is a more practical route.

The whole blower setup I got for like $700. Then add in the Injectors the cobra heat exchanger and gauges I'm sitting right at a grand.

Or I can get a turbo setup and have $3000 just in parts.


On a side note: Got my JBP Vortex header put in yesterday.. what a BITA. Had to move the coolant pipe on the back side of the block down about 1/4" and then the gasket was seeping a little fluid. So I said screw it (Took like 6 hours to get the header behind the block) I bought so High tempature gasket maker and just filled the pipe with probably 1/4" worth of gasket maker. I doubt it's ever leaking.

Take it around the block, sounds awesome, stop and check... no leaks. Corey decides to get on it hard to see how it sounds and we soon after realized that the O2 Plug that came with the header (Blocks off the wideband bung) wasn't torqued down but hand tight. So it rattled itself loose and blew off.... I"m driving a monster truck right now. .

So Wideband will plug the hole anyway, i will drive it in monster mode until friday, no big deal.

Got to pay for a wedding first brad. Ashley decided she didn't want to work and student teach at the same time. So my income won go as far now. With that being send, when she gets done in 4 months I have permission to go balls deep.

This should still produce a very respectable amount of power.

In the Omaha area there are a few tire places that sell steelies rather cheap. Do you already have rubber for them or still trying to figure that part out?

Details?? And How much? I talked the guy down to $350. Rear quarters have the typical rust spots and it needs a new passenger fender. Dad has given the green line to use the 4th car garage and do the body work.

Gdamn! People all over the Omaha area have been blowing up Z24's left and right lately.

But...I drove mine to Sioux City and raced it with practically no oil in it (not my fault) and quite literally beat the hell out of it on a regular basis and the @!#$ still gets about 34mpg. Has a pretty nasty oil leak. But I'm just sayin...it still runs, and runs quite well. *knocks on wood*
