I would have to think about the color, but with what all you did to the bay and the car....that grey color just doesn't mesh...

I guess you're right. I would paint it myself but I'm across the country. My mechanic is doing all the pick ups, running around for parts, and installing. He's a hell of a guy. I wouldn't ask him to tape it off and spray the block and heads. Haha. Although it'd just take a spray can and like 30 mins.

I am having the hardest time finding the proper flywheel dust cover. The engine shop lost mine. Idk why they even had it. Anyone got any links for me? I tried summit and Whitney. I'm lost.

I'm looking at some UCAs and LCAs. I guess Steeda is a good way to go? Does anyone have information on the fixed versus adjustable RCAs in terms of using them on a lowered vehicle? I'm assuming I'll need the adjustable ones because lowering probably skewed my pinion angle a bit.


What do y'all think?

I've been told that the stock UCA are better than aftermarket because of them being too stiff or something like that. Maybe someone more knowledgable can chime in and help

Haha. Do you take credit cards?

As for RCAs.. Why is the stock upper ok but the stock lower isn't? Just asking because my stock upper has 120k miles on it. Thought it was a part that might wear out over time?

With that many miles go ahead an replace them. But be careful because most aftermarket uppers can cause some binding in the rear end. Your best bet would be to just buy the Ford upper. If you go a different route try to find one with a rubber bushing

Thanks venom. I'm in love with this clutch. I just hope it's not too crazy with how much force it takes to engage and such.

You probably mentioned it and I missed it, but what brand/stage clutch is it?

Ram dual disk stage 3. Expensive as crap but I treat my things nice.

In other words it's sex.

Thanks! It's been a really long road. I still have a lot going to happen to it soon.

In the next few weeks I want to have my steeda full length subframes welded in, my custom brake SS brake lines made and ran in, also get my wire tuck done in the engine bay(as much as I can), as well as some other things here and there...

And then of course my big plans which I'm keeping to myself for now. I'll just let pictures and videos reveal it all. It'll be a nice surprise for the forum.

I'm not terribly sure at this moment. We will have to start it and see how it goes. I'll get back to you on it.
