Update after a couple weeks just cruising and enjoying it:
  • Got a new HPTuners to supplement/replace DHP use, and will be adjusting the file soon (old tune is still very close for basic driving around)
  • Lowered the front another inch on coilovers
  • Got Nitto 555 G2's all around (255-50-17), look great and grip awesome, just gotta be careful cuz they're intentionally soft and will wear quick
  • Aligned today at local shop, and it should be ready to play

(after adjusting down from ~4.26" gap)

11174

Set of 4 Nittos from Summit

11175

Getting aligned with lasers!!! (guys at the shop loved the car, and that there's an aftermarket for 3800's)

Install video of the ZZP coilovers. Hope it came out clear enough to let people decide if they want to go that route:

Started the morning headed to a Cars & Coffee, wound up at a local car show & won the 2000's class (2000-2009). That was random! Gotta show up to win, I guess.

(Do all that work to make it go fast, and it gets its 1st trophy sitting still.)

Quick walk-through of that car show. I'll have 1/4mi race prep and in-car footage put together soon.

Got out to the track last month. Ran in street trim, and on slicks, to get the dust off. Been 11yrs but got back into 11's, for now. Video with details should be put together eventually, but been busy at work.

Made a prep video just talking thru as I got it ready for that Test N Tune last month. Some random tips/notes sprinkled in as I narrated my thoughts along the way.

Race video will be edited together from GoPro in-car footage this week. (more entertaining than this stuff, but I'm sharing the steps along the way)

Fresh 2004 GTP engine in after spinning a bearing at 7k rpm in the 2006 block during the May track trip (picked up the engine the next week, but got busy this summer). Videos uploaded last month or so.

Added (either due to oil issues, or to improve runs):
  • ZZP oil pressure kit
  • ZZP 3500 stall (was 3000)
  • CX T72 BB .68 A/R T4
  • ZZP lifters (LS7 style)
T72 T4, T67 T4, T66 T3/4

Video will be made soon, but I realize I didn't post the last couple, so feel free to see them on the channel link.

Hoping to hit the same track in 2wks, then maybe a couple more outings before the end of the year.
