it has been forever since ive logged on and i have made some changes to the car.
now_zpsjf0pps9l.jpg


I sold the bullitt wheels, which i have had for around 10years. was sad but sweet.
i went with silver fr500s, ive always liked the fr500, but with so many people running them i went with silver.
you dont see too many sets of silver fr's
before the mickey thompsons came

also i installed a set of aluminum gt40x heads and an f303 cam with some 3.73 gears.
after almost a year with the crappy noisy rocker arms, one of them just broke.

so i just took them all off and put the stockers back on. the bolt hole on the first valve on the drivers side was a little
buggered up so i used a slightly longer bolt to catch some threads.
after about 10 miles the bolt snapped off in the head.

i drilled it out and tapped it with a slightly larger hole.

and the heilcoil

all was good for about 25 miles or so, i used a grade 8 bolt that i dont think was totally up to par.
well it snapped too.
i went to drill it out, and put an extractor in it. bad choice... it snapped

at this point i just know i ruined the head, i couldnt drill throught it.
i found some tungsten carbide dremel cutting bits with a tip, and worked it until i got it all. best $30 i ever spent.


on the way to the shop

Hey, I'm new here. Just wondering what size fr500's you went with 17's or 18's? Also what is your suspension setup, your stance is next level!
