Be gentle on those 3rd and 4th gear pulls on the street. Dan and his red colt from Cali, went through a number of gear sets and transmissions, and yeah ... Super cool to see numbers like that!

How does the car shift at higher RPMS?
I've had good luck keeping my trans alive by starting pulls in 2nd and going through the gears. I'd try to stay away from just rolling into boost in 3rd and 4th from low rpms. That seems to be the best way to destroy gears. Sorry about the lack of pics of the radiator as well. I'll eventually get it sorted but Photobucket is being a bitch.

was bored this morning so finally decided to weigh the thing

2720 with me in it (180lbs) and 13 gallons of 110 (~80lbs) so the car weighs roughly 2460 lbs. I never weighed it before the swap but doesn't seem too bad, i was guessing around 2600.

I still have to put the door bars in which will ad 20 pounds or so. I also plan on swapping out the Stacey David special seats in favor of some lighter sparcos or brides or whatever so that should hopefully cancel out the door bars.

Planning on hitting the drag strip here shortly.
