Been a while since I looked at SR stuff, but I seem to recall there are certain types of lifters (Red Zone, HIPPO) that were preferable if you are going to be running it on the street due to their...

Should be just fine. Doesn't look like you are flaring stainless. That can be the real bitch.

For what it's worth, it was done this way from the factory in some old school cars. First and second gen Novas use a rubber coupling between the filler neck and tank.

Gotcha. Wasn't sure if there was a performance issue with the filter itself. I've had the same issue with them- the nut itself seems shallow and pre-rounded.

For this a quart of SPI epoxy and catalyst is probably good. That gives you 2 quarts sprayable. From what I recall it's also UV stable, but I'd topcoat it.

I don't think I'd try spraying it under,...

How much abuse do you think it's really going to see? Blasting would probably be the best option but it may just be overkill. I'd contend that painting it like a plain old car bumper would be pretty...

Eh, I don't really think so. Those little things don't really work well. I've got their "spot blaster" and it works poorly.

You might be able to use a regular electric hand sander if it's got a...

Gotcha. I use a Garmin in the Nova as converting to big boy gauges will be $1000 or so and I've got too much ahead of that in line. Got one used from a friend who didn't need it anymore.

Willing to spray, with even an HF purple gun? Honestly I'd consider an epoxy primer with zinc in it. I think SPI's stuff has that and it's UV stable. You might even be able to brush it.

Also confirming, it doesn't vibrate when the car is not moving, clutch in (shifter not just in N), and you rev to 5-6k?

Same here. I still think it's driveline angle related.

FWIW I'd see about strapping a GoPro under the car facing the diff.

Edit:

One driveline thing not mentioned swapping was the diff...

If the rotating assembly is made up of used parts from different engines I would say you absolutely have to get it checked/modified.

Only reason I ask is because now's the time for an electronic speedo drive vs. mechanical. If he retrofits a T56 he'll have to change gauges. Or just get a GPS speedo now.
