    Car looks amazing! Just out of curiousity, why did you stay with the factory K-member? I can't seem to decide what to do with mine yet.

    What type of fuel lines are those blue lines and how do they attach to the AN fittings?

    Are you doing everything but the fab work or is someone else building the car?

    Next year I plan on doing a Mini Tub with Coil overs on all 4corners. Come that time I will decided on a K-Member, more then likely an MM or Griggs setup.

    Hell no. I hate working on cars, avoid it at all cost...LOL. Steve Sept is doing all the install and fab work.

    The engine was built tuned and tested by Campbell Racing.

    The actual specs and design were put together by myself.

    Thanks Brad! Thanks to all, that said good things about my work..

    The car is going to tear up the dyno Saturday.

    Some of my hard work has paid off. My 2.3 89 coupe flies!

    This is maybe why Brad picked me to do his car.

    sample > http://savefile.com/files/6189771 last year we raced.

    My 2.3

    Damn! in that video Brad trapped at 120mph and only did mid 13's. He is in need of some traction desperately. Your car rocks to, talk about a sleeper. I had a 85 notch with the 2.3 and I put a turbo setup from a 83 ranger on it. It was pretty quick, ran high 14's in the 1/4. Nothing like yours though!

    Steve's the Best!

    So close but we didn't quite get'r done today.

    Here are a few pics of the completed engine bay and one pic of my new JGS By-Pass, which was a **** to install by the way.

    We fired her up though and she purr's like a lion.:D
