i just ordered a few goodies for my suspension(;

King 2.5"x10" Coilovers
-Dual rate hardware with 5" 500lb over 18" 700lb coils
-Black Zinc shock body
-Black anodized res. body
-White anodized components
-Res. Compression adjuster

And a set of King 2.5"x2.5" Shorty bump stops with cans.

next im going to get my rear shocks. i want some 2.5"x16" double or triple bypasses. maybe even 3" if i could afford it. that would be ****.

I'd be tempted to run internally bypassed shocks for the rear. No tubes to get in the way on the outside of the shock body. But you've got a bed so it's less of a big deal than it is in a tahoe. Should be a good setup.

Got my TC, gauge pods, wbo2 setup and gauges dropped off today. I'm hoping to get her back in a week, maybe two depending on his work load. Here's some pics of my gauge setup and the sexy *** TCS billet 20s stall converter. Low stall atm to save on fuel, but rusty at TCS will resrall it when I go turbo septemberish.

PLX touch screen AFR OLED gauge with LED AFR sweep up top, PLX DM100 obd2 scan gauge also full color OLED in the middle, which will run boost, fuel pressure and IAT while interfacing with the duel bank WBo2 setup when I go turbo. Trans temp at the bottom. Oil pressure will be cut into the dash somewhere that is easily monitered.

Here's a video of me testing out the dm100. I've got one in the typhoon and know they're Awesome but the box was crunched and I had to test it.. New toys lol

PLX DM100 OBD2 test:

Billet TCS converter. 2400 stall. Baby stall yay! I couldn't say enough good things about my dealings with rusty at TCS. Customer service is amazing and quick turn around for a custom order. Took 7 work days. And as I stated before you get a discount on restalls so when I go snail I'll up it to 28 or 3000 depending on his recommendation. Only running 12psi on a medium size hair dryer my builder said easily 600 wheel. Here's hoping. I just need to get some guns built or sold after I move back into town so I can afford turbo headers and all the fab work plus the turbo and all the necessary components. That's where I'm at so far.

Well from the news I received today she should be all buttoned up tonight. So most likely I'll pick her up tomorrow. Or tonight if it's early enough. I just can't wait to have her back. These rentals are killing me.

She's all done. One mystery leak and stubborn wideband o2 gauges but other then that she's rockin.
Butt dyno feels way better then her first return home. Didn't get to put her back on the rollers but she hits 80 in no time and I actually get this thing called miles per gallon..... quick vid on our derelict airstrip. Pics on request. Posting from my phone so it's a pain.

LS swapped prerunner obs tahoe donuts: http://youtu.be/pNsgSo4nFqY

At 60 you can hear me feather the throttle cause the *** end tried to pass the front. No bueno on dirt.
Fun as hell to drive. It's sure to shock some folks around town heh.

Thank you thank you.

She gets unveiled at our desert fanatics club If not tomorrow I'll have her hanfldeting Saturday. Pics tonight when I get the motor all cleaned up. May even wash her. If not tonight I'll have her hand washed somewhere Saturday since she doesn't fit in the tracks being 9 inches wider then stock.

Well my IAC took a **** on me. Which has its advantages. I need a retune which means more.dyno time, but also means more down time for the fat white hoe. I've been told to expect better numbers as the tune was off a little bit. Should hit around the 400whp mark. I definitely feels like it's in that range.


Next step is I'm having a 40 gallon fuel cell made to fit where the spare went. Links in the rear with tripple bypass reservoir coiloverd, and 6 over arms up front including a full engine cage, boxed frame where the 2.5 double bypass reservoir foxes will be, plated lower and moly tubular upper arms. Again all uniballed and hiemed.
New glass and eventually a Whipple.
Should be quite the lake limo.
