New year, new thread... strat's sedan 2017

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.
