Got my comp stage 1 cams in today off a member on here a little concerned because there is a few scratches...

also got my intake and exhaust manifold gasket in but I had to trim the large bolt holes for the copper gasket to fit anyone else had this problem with the Mr.gasket brand?

This officially sucks....
I filed my federal return that I owned money on the check I sent bounced when I had funds in the account I guess the company that issues my checks changed them and decided to never tell me that I needed to use my new ones so now I owe $250 to the government. and I have been making purchases though papal with my savings account and I guess There is fines if you do this so now I owe $225 to my bank on purchases that total less than that. F*ck

Here is a the brass shifter bushing I got Installed some people swear by these things

I kinda wanted to wait till I got the rest of the things in before I told you my plans but here is the water methanol kit I am going to fabricate I planned on this being a budget alternative to snow-performance stage 1 kit but with the bank fines it's going to cost me the same.

I like the placement of the gauge pod. Did you just fiberglass it to the dash or is it going to be a removable piece? How do you plan to blend it into the dash texture and color also. Nice work!

It's going to be removable that was just the base I layed down tape on my dash and it popped out then I mould around that I'm not sure about the color yet it depends on how well it flows into the dash.

Colt4g63; Nope I wish thedsmgraveyard is taking its sweet time with my parts it's been two weeks still hasn't shipped...

When I mounted the factory radio I just got I had to epoxy It into the brackets since one of the 8 previous owners thought it would be a good idea to chop the bracket up.

This car is my fast car I already have about a grand just in audio in my trailblazer so I'm happy with factory for this especially since I don't have a radio antenna.

Got a few parts In still waiting on my bearings and Rings
