Hi Adam. I have a flat ratcheting box end wrench that might fit. When I get home I'll give it a test fit and post a picture of it. My office is in Canyon Park, so it would be very close by for you to...

Don't remember if you said what type of headers you're using. When I got my Pypes x-pipe kit five years ago I remember it was a bear trying to get the curvy pipes to mate up with the headers and...

Also, experience based guidance on shocks. Cost wise I don't feel like paying the extra for an adjustable set. So just what people have found works best with the 330 vs 360 in a non-adjustable set. ...

I'm sure most will confirm that the 330 is too soft. I went from the 7 layer steel spring to the 360 (mine actually measure closer to 350 when tested) but now when going over a dip the rear dives...

Wow, now that I can see the Glasworks tail on a real car it looks a lot better than I expected. I've been going back and forth on this idea vs the '82 bumper for quite a while. Where did you get...

I'm doing well with a 14x3" drop base from Summit on an Air Gap with a Quick Fuel HR780VS. Choke and all, still have 1/2" to spare at the front of the cleaner lid. So maybe it depends on which hood...

The inserts in that black car have little spikes that will kill the flow, probably above 3500rpm. Sound is one thing but I value the output of the system.

There are some great threads on CF that...

To answer your question, I would never go back to a stock spring. Unless you want that mushy, too soft ride that compromises your cornering ability. I am very comfortable and a lot more stable now....
