Re: input on front swaybars

Z bar will be lighter and close to identical in terms of stiffness. Just leave 'er alone.

Re: Front coil overs in gbody cutlass..no travel..help!!!

Do you have travel if you disconnect the shocks? as if I disconnect the top nut on the stud..haven't tried that... While you shouldn't be resting on the bump stops, you should still be getting some sort of transfer. If you take the shock out of the equation, you should be able to verify if there is...

What type of racing do you do, and how fast is the car?

Re: non low drag calipers

Most of the aftermarket are non-low drag. You may want to give Speedway Motors a call and confirm. They sell a ton of metric calipers for the IMCA/roundy round guys.

Re: QA1 dbl adj rear shocks

Go full loose on extension, full tight on compression, and then come in a few clicks each way as a starting point. If you're blowing them off at the hit, then you need the extension to let the rear separate and the weight of the car keep them planted. If you do that, and it dead hooks before spinnin...

Re: QA1 dbl adj rear shocks

Is it biting and unloading as soon as you start to roll, or blowing it off immediately at the hit?

Re: Looking for BBC EFI selection for turbo setup

Holley or FAST. IMO, call Brian Macy at Horsepower Connection/the EFI Store and go over your options. You may spend a few more bucks with him (or any reputable dealer) vs. Summit, etc, but the support is worth it. When I was having problems with my Holley, Brian took care of it immediately, and even...

Re: wagon lexan

I had used machine screws and nylocks. I wouldn't go any thicker than 1/8" or so back there, personally. I didn't weld any extra material back there, but can't remember just how tight/flush it was to the factory sheet metal.

Re: wagon lexan

Not much to it. Rear windows are fixed and can slide into the factory track openings. Hardest part about the long rear windows is getting them not to pucker based on fastener selection and lexan thickness. I had some cracking issues a long time ago, but was using too thick of a material. Vibration m...

Don't think so, it's been in storage for a few years. It boogies, but is the ugliest thing you've ever seen :D

Re: malibu wagon frame notch

You can notch identically to the coupes. Same frame rail setup, just need to get more creative with the tubs. I notched to the seam with factory tubs and have a 28x10 tucked in there with plenty of room to spare.
