    Springs, struts, weld in my subs and crossbraces, and most likely bolt in a driveshaft loop.

    Rebuild the motor and trans in my '90GT AOD car and start the homemade single turbo setup for it. Get new wheels for my '95, as well as powder coating the brackets and misc. parts in black chrome.

    RiceEating5.0-

    How do you get the h-pipe to work with the turbo? Wouldn't you want a y-pipe?

    The aftermarket shorty style (type made for longtube headers) X or H pipe will work. The turbo kit includes a Y pipe. This Y pipe splits into two and mates to an aftermarket H/X pipe.

    This week I'll be doing Cobra brakes, and MM sub welding.
    The rest of the winter will consist of:
    MM panhard bar
    Smoked headlights
    some sort of audio (tape player broke)
    mount battery in trunk

    Either..MM front and rear coil overs
    or AFR 165's (can't decide where to spend income tax check $)

    Might sneak in a MM torque arm if business is good.

    We should pull this thread up in the Spring and see if we accomplish our goals.

    It's not like we have much of a winter down in sunny Florida, but finishing the rear suspension, a roll cage, new brakes, and starting the new motor are on the list.

    Suspension -
    Still undecided on the MM torque arm and a home built panhard bar or Evolution Motorsports watt's link and 3-link. I'll get it figured out soon.

    Roll Cage -
    Nothing fancy here. Probably just an Autopower 6-point cage.

    Brakes -
    I'm leaning towards a 13" Stoptech setup but the cost of the 4-pot brembos or 6-pot Wilwoods are appealing. I may go cheap and get some 13" Cobra's. :shrug:

    Motor:
    I really need to do the math, but an aluminum block 347 with twin turbos is planned. I figure if I can do it for under $15K I'll go for it, even if it will take me 3-years to finish.

    My Cartech Outlaw Turbo is on order and that will be the biggest project. Building my speaker box and installing the amps and XM. New ABS sensors since we had to beat them off to change gears. Clean interior until it shines. Put subframe connectors on. And speed Cal.

    The only thing I have planned for now is to sell my 94 and purchase a 98 Vortech S/C'ed Chrome Yellow Cobra. And if all goes well it should happen in a week or two.

    finish the 347

    I have been working on the new stroker for a while now.

    Have to pull it out and put in a new oil pump driveshaft. broke the first one somehow. any ideas what causes that??

    than I have to put it back together and hopefully do some serious tuning.

    just bought my new cherry picker and engine stand today, so I am ready to rock and roll.

    after the tuning it's just break her in and get some rubber for the 17's. and a new cobra r hood of course so it don't feel naked.

    hope to get her dynoed sometime next summer.

    good luck guys
