I will be doing a Ford 8.8 swap finally, as well as a new front suspension set up.  I sold the stock rear end to a guy at work who races IT7 class.

Newest video is up!  I designed a new 4 link for the 8.8.  Please critique.

I extended my control arms and am now running FC RX7 knuckles and Coilovers, this car is becoming more and more of a frankenstein...

Put my new wheels on, and went drifting.  Unfortunately since I was rushed and didn't have a 220V circuit, my panhard bar and 4 link brackets broke on my rear axle.  I have since installed a 220v circuit in my garage and am getting new brackets made that are thicker.   I am going to be welding those on soon.


I also blew 3rd gear, I am just going to buy 2 more T5s because that is cheaper then converting to something else.
