    haha im pulling your man card for knowing what type of shoes i had on lol

    but yes... port work! going to open up the top half of my intake a lil more. im plan to fill the EGR spacer with JB weld and blend the upper to it. the 65mm throttle body go away for a 70 or 75 (havent made up my mind). then open up the runners to match the gaskets which the lower is matched to

    75!

    Also, there aint nothing girly about knowing what Sperrys are! I've been wearing those since before they were a common item at the local Payless shoe store. Used to order them through a marina, that was about the only way you could get them.

    #1 - I wear Sperrys and love everything about them but the price

    #2 - What spline axles did you go with and how much was the spool?

    You gonna dimple the shock tower for clearance? Looks like it's rubbing or damn near close and going to rattle like all hell. Love the colors on those RR's.. I've never seen a darn set all one color in 20 years.

    nope... should be fine i have solid motor mounts.

    always wondered why they changed colors and i still havent figured it out. my guess is heat makes the pores open up and oil discolors them. i saw ford racing has a new set that are adjustable with out using shims
