New year, new thread... strat's sedan 2017
Sunday, February 05, 2017 8:48 AM
Figured it's time to start a new thread... goal is to get back out autoxing this year.

Started out by removing my baers from the front of the car




Traded them for these...




Also picked this up from pj...



It's an le5/lsj hybrid for those not familiar with pj's old build. Plans are to install the balance shaft deletes and timing bolt upgrade kit into it and toss it in the car.

Additional Plans for this year:

Ennotech lightened alt pulley
Phenolic mani/engine spacer
3" side dump exhaust
Racetronix pump/harness
60# injectors
New set of 255's
Rework the modded fenders for better bumper fitment
New tie rods and ball joints
A/c delete
Battery relocate
Alignment
Retune

If time and money permits, ps delete, wilwood brake master/adjustable proportioning valve, and possibly a lightweight dash. I'd also like to start working on some aero for the car.

Since I updated the old thread...

Got the brakes bled and the car back on the ground. Just waiting on some parts so I can get the new motor prepped and installed in the car


In the meantime, working on getting the spray paint off the vis hood so it can be recleared.

I've done some thinking and I think I'm gonna put the hybrid motor off till the fall... for now I'll get the car aligned, exhaust finished, fenders finished, inspected, and possibly tuned on the 60's and drive it with the l61 so I can enjoy the car over the summer. It also means I can make sure I have everything I'll need when I'm ready to drop the hybrid in.

Good plan. Sort of what I'm against with my new motor. I want to enjoy the car this summer before taking it apart. I plan to paint the engine bay while doing the motor swap and I want to do this Half Mile event in October. I do not want to be rushed.

Finally after wanting one of these for a long time, I picked up my OEM midbrace!



Also picked up a set of moog tie rod ends.

I like the style of your Sedan, maybe you should paint something on the hood. Just a thought

yep... thanks to photobucket's greed, all my pic threads are gone.

i'll have to find another hosting site and redo the thread.

I wouldn't really call it 'greed', Photobucket has not been making money for years, and the story is the same for most image hosting sites.

It's have to 'keep the lights on' when what is keeping you afloat is investors and 5 second ads when users upload images. basically a half-cent per ad too with the ways those are monetized.

Really it's more of an issue with the industry of photo hosting online, isn't really a good way to make money at it because people just hop on the next free option and that free option is burning money faster then they'll make it

Imgur... that would be my suggestion for photo hosting, but... it's not turned a profit ever so it'll die one day as well unless something changes.



I miss my Cavalier, even if it made 100 hp on a cold day and had more suspension then it deserved.

I would cal it greed... it's not like they want $10/mo to be able to external link. I would have paid for that no problem. They want $400/yr for a service they have provided free for years and flipped the switch without any warning to their customers.

400 a year is ridiculous, would make sense for the ebay sellers that had been abusing the site. not for normal people that might have 1 request a day.

Firefox has the same extension.
