Ordered all the parts to build the upper and lower rear control arms. Gotta fab up the new sway bar mounts on the trailing arms. Then get all those sand blasted and powder coated.

Oil pump is on its way from JNZ Tuning.

AMS Race balance shaft is on its way too!

Also sandblasted the rear and painted it. Didn't worry about it being perfect since its going to self destruct soon after the car is running lol

I love how with standard ARP headstuds you get a nice box with info on them and torque specs. But you spend 3 times the price of regular ones for L19's and you get just this in a ziploc bag lol

Here you go sir!

If anyone wants to make their own These are the part numbers:

AFCO part numbers: (prices based off summit racing)

UPPER:

30211 tie rod end LH (x2) $17.88ea
10141 jam nut 3/4" LH (x2) $0.95ea
20023k rod end/bushing kit 3/4" lower (x2) $23.88ea
19514 14 inch swage tubing (x2) $12.88ea

For lower just substitute the 14 inch tubing with the 17 inch below.

19517 17 inch swage tubing (x2) $ 13.88ea

Also if you do the lower control arms you will need to fab up a bracket for the swaybar! I will post pictures of mine when I get it done.

Well I have been working on some other stuff besides the car lately. But I have taken a little time and got started on the engine harness. Got all the factory loom stripped off down to the wires.

Image

And tonight I De-pinned the few plugs I am not going to need. They are mostly EGR/FPS connectors, Boost solenoid, Cruise control connector, Brake Fluid switch, and Throttle closed switch(running Link). These were all De-Pinned not cut off(unless it tied into a central ground). Was alot easier then I thought. Basically just takes a lot of thought. And me checking ten times before removing it. lol

Here is what its down to. Not much to you people but i see a big difference lol

Image

The removed stuff. boxed up full length(just in case ;) )
