Another quick update popped out the rear camber a little more & lubed up the threads so they wont seize up again and will take it to Firestone in the morning ( aiming for -0.5 in the rear) what is a safe camber up front...... Driver front is at -1.9 and Passenger front is -1.4

I think im going to have to warranty these MOOG balljoints


Changed oil drained water and flushed radiator and put in green coolant. I also changed the fuel filter.


and these I know one side is a little higher but I had 4 decals to begin with and I jacked up 2 of them

Put in the NERP solid shift bushings... WOW! what a difference. If you look closely you can also see the wiring being ran for independent turns for Euro Tails but ill post pics of those when they are done and I also have a few more updates.

Wow i just read the whole thread. You've done an awesome job so far buddy.
Great build. I like the red/black theme you got going on there.
Maybe i can help you with some lhd st170 headlamps since i'm from Holland.

I also like the t stathousing. What a nice piece of aloy.
Can you tell me the use of the nerd shift bushes? I've never seen them before.
Are you not afraid of increased wearing on the big end bearings due to the aloy distribution pully's??
I thought i would get them to but i'm afraid it will eat my big end bearings becouse the oem crankpully is balanced and the aloy ones are not.

The Massive Billet Crank pulley is balanced no issues with it whatsoever frees up some of that rotating mass at least half the weight of the stock pulley maybe even lighter.Massve I believe has over 200,000 miles of testing with this pulley and no issue either so Im not worried. I wouldnt underdrive the alternator or water pump though unless it was a full on race car, this cars charging system is already kind of puny.

yeah that Tstat housing is tits what can you do shipped on a new set of ST170 with back plates and signal sockets, Ive been talking to a guy in Germany but he hasn't been real clear and kind of hard to get a hold of.

Thanks for the kind words, and hit me up on those headlamps please my stone ones are all crusty and yellow now with internal cracks throughout the plastic.

They remove the play of the shifter base, more positive feel and less play in shifter.
