Thanks again! I wanted those baller quad tips and they only worked for 98+ cars, so just a quick swap now. Talk about good timing! North jersey might have a come back!

Ran into a clearance issue with the headers I had to replace my old Pacesetters, just ordered a Stainless works system through Josh. From here, I’ll have a running car and I’ll see how much further we’ll go down the rabbit hole. I’ll be good to go by Spring with this ugly duckling.

I have stainless works on my ls1. When my pacesetters crumble to dust on my lt1, then ill get them for it too.

Even their cat backs fit great.

Coming along nicely. Ask him to toss a little wire loom on that low oil level sensor pigtail please.

The car is back, and it is amazing. Its been to long since I've driven a sorted F-body. Huge thanks to Josh @ JS Performance. I spent the afternoon cleaning it up, and then drove it into the sunset, and didn't even want to stop for photos!

Take a minute to get us up to speed. Those few social media pics aren't enough to hold me over.

Josh basically chased and replaced a lot of my shade tree mechanic work. Fixing minor vacuum leaks or parts that never carried over from the swap, did a basic tune up; plugs, wires, filters & all that. But the fun stuff includes:
New Line-Locks
ABS-Delete
Unbalanced Engineering Rag-Joint Delete
UMI Torque Arm
Stainless Works Long Tube Headers & Y-Pipe
New Magnaflow Exhaust
Summit Rear-Battery with Flaming River Cut-Off
And most importantly a C5 Front Brake conversion

The car is just running incredibly well, I have a new carpet on order, with new seats following close behind. I had to hold off on the mini-tubs for now, but its a project we'll be tackling later in the season.

All laid out, letting it get warm before I start pushing it in and cutting for seats, seat-belt & bar.
