What exactly did you change (changed heads, intake, carb, and transmission (went with a transbrake) to try and run a 9?
How much of a shot were you using?

Thnx.

What are you using for the front suspension? Do you have it set up as a drag car?
I'm building a street/daily car. Full suspension, sway, bracing, AC. I'm trying to get an idea of spring rate for the car since I will not know the front end weight of the car until its all put back together, and I hate the idea of doing front springs more than once.

qa1 coilovers with a 350 pound spring...its a street car 80% of the time but is set up for drag....no sway bars....full weight car 400 wouldn't be out of the question i had to crank and crank on the spring perch to get the front end up on mine with the 350...

what headers are you using with this swap? I think I'm going to nix the turbo and pull out the 4.8 and do a 6.0 w/l92 heads and holley highram intake and comp cams.

I think I'll have to change mine to a walbro in tank for my upgrade to the 6.0. I'm taking my l92 heads to the porter today. .
