    Time to get some more stuff done now as it gets warmer. Got to get the quick release steering mounted amoung some other things.

    New upper and lower A Arms
    All new steering linkage rebuild kit
    Low profile Cal-Tracs for the rear along with new bushings for the leaf springs
    New 100 amp alternator
    New Morris seat belts

    The FiTech unit is working flawlessly and really like how easy it starts.

    Had the motor dynoed by my builder of motor and made 16HP and 20LBS more than with the Holley 770 Street Avenger on it. 503 HP 513 Ft Lbs TQ.

    Good stuff . Atomization is key with the new fi carbs. Its hard to beat a fine mist of gas for a explosion

    Had some minor set backs, so now the car is off to get some things installed.
    New front/rear drilled/slotted rotors along with new hawk pads.

    Got my roll bar and G Bars in also today from PTFB.

    Also got my AC system yet to be installed from: Original Air

    Bought a NRG Lock Assy for steering wheel, mostly a theft deterrent. Did have my lock key modified by local locksmith though for further theft prevention.
