    I got an update on the valve cover. Should be at powder coat now. Im still waiting on a rear sway bar. Also ordered a few little things. I got the middle and top timing covers finally. Also go all my vaccum lines and fittings in. And a alternator belt in an attempt to remedy this awful squeak at startup.

    FINALLY found a rear sway bar. Should be on the way here on Monday. Once that goes in I can finish the exhaust, valve cover and pvc and then first start on the new build.

    That Is the issue I have been having. I currently have an ST sway bar and it doesn't work for the new exhaust I got. So I got ahold of a used oem gst rear sway bar.

    He is a good guy. He has been around a long time. I think since the beginning. Can be a little abrasive sometimes but that adds to the kenny experience LOL LOL. I advise paying attention to absolutely everything he says. Extremely knowledgeable.

    Cheater slicks have grooves cut in the center so they can get a little traction off the strip. Regular drag slicks are completely smooth. I can see why he's asking, there are 2 lines across your tires. I think those are just mold marks and will wear off though.

    Well tomorrow is the big day. I have to wire a map sensor, run vacuum lines, pump in oil to prime the new turbo, and adjust a few sensors. Then connect power, make sure there isn't an electrical fire LOL, and check for fuel leaks. Then crank it over and see if it starts. Tomorrow is the big day.

    A couple of suggestions if I may. Not sure if the engine has been rebuilt or if it's been sitting for awhile but I would suggest some "Stabil Fogging Oil" you remove the spark plugs, and spray for 3 sec into each cylinder. It lubricates it for first starts or people who have had it sitting for awhile. Also just pull the engine fuse and crank the engine for a bit. This should build up oil pressure for you. Then pop it back in and your good to go. Keep us posted
