New stuff going on car soon (springs, etc)

Finally got around to ordering my H&R race springs. I have MM CC plates, button head rear IRS bolts, front 14mm IRS bolts, and front calipers with SS lines ready to go on. Hopefully I can get it on before the show season gets going (hopefully before the show april 19th.)

I will be having a new clutch here shortly as well...and hopefully some bushings too...and the Fore heat extractors went on last weekend. If only I had the dough for the rest of the stuff I want. lol

My next purchase will be cleaning supplies. Need to order some raggtop among other things.

I want to order a ton of those as well...just it hasn't been in the budget. I've started the order a couple different times now...only to close the page out as it didn't fit.

Although, I just found out that I don't have to replace my flywheel as I already have a spec steel flywheel so I can just replace the friction plate on it....so that's going to save me $200 on parts.

I've been eyeing my buddies ported eaton with a 2.76 pulley already on it...just can't talk myself into springing for it. He said he'll even do the swap for me. 400 bucks

What stage port? And...um....do it!!!! $400 is a pretty good steal...and then sell your stocker for about $250-400....there's a dude on SVTP that is always buying those up....and steggy buys cores a lot too.

It's not a steggy port, and with that upper I'd be looking just under 500 at the wheels. Ported by some other shop. He just replaced it with a steggy stage V

If it is the one I am thinking of from SVTP, don't do it. Did he get it off a deal from SVTP with some shop's introductory deal? Or is it just a local shop?

I'll have to call and ask for their name again. I forgot it.


My only problem with it is the extra money I'll spend on top of that for the tune and other things.
