That engine is just ***GASP!!!*** :shock:

What's going on for suspension? How did you make it trackworthy??? (holy negative camber, too!!!)

Awesome ride. Keep the stock color--looks great.

Thanks. :)

I'm using 1000 lb/in springs at the front with a 30mm sway bar and 300 lb/in springs at the rear with a 22mm sway bar. I have Koni red (one way adjustable) shock absorbers in there. As for the camber, I modified the upper control arms to accept mre shimming. At the moment I can get 4.75 degrees of negative camber and 4 degrees of caster.

The whole setup sounds pretty sick. Nice.
