It took 3rd place at Tiger Run last year. A little tender love and care and you could have yourself a 1st place trophy this year.

Ill check when I get home haha.


So go fast stuff on hold. Was gonna mix a little go fast with some suspension, but now full coilovers, sway, and a handful of bushings. Ittl be good for autocross in the spring. Maybe even a wheel/tire combo too.

I just keep telling myself that it's fast enough for now. Over and over an over..... Hoping I believe it haha

Nope. Just looked. It appears to have been replaced, as it has a barcode sticker on it.

To be honest I don't. However, two things attribute to this: 1) I hardly get on it at all. Most trips to work I don't go over 2-3k. 2) it's really dirty haha. Ill be cleaning the filter this weekend.

I can hear it and I know ittl likely help when i do more later on. But even if it does exactly 0, I'd still do it cause intake and exhaust go on almost every vehicle I own.

They thankfully were kept by the previous owner. They're hideous. Probably why it drove like shit for him.


This will be a normal well taken care of goat from here on out.

Going to look at some tsw nogaros tomorrow.

18x8 and 18x9. Chrome. No tires. I'm pretty happy with the askin price. Hope they're in as good of shape as they look.

and then white line dropped a goodie off today

ImageUploadedByAG Free1356064431.434473.jpg

I should have the rest of the suspension here by Monday. Best Xmas ever. First married wedding, gto is a month old or so, many new suspension parts coming in by Xmas eve. I'm thrilled. Ill get the sway in tomorrow night or Saturday morning. And I'm waiting on a tool from my brother before I do the shifter. I really can't wait. Ittl be nice to see exactly what the sway does by its self and how much of a difference it makes on this car.

Thanks for looking.

I felt a big difference with my sway bars, especially once you upgrade the struts and springs. Makes it drive like a totally different car.

Shifter is in. Pretty straightforward install. Best part, this previously had an aftermarket shifter so there were no hex head factory stuff in there. So a 13mm ratcheting wrench and bam, they were out. Gettin the bolts back in was a little more difficult as I had to do them from underneath, but as the directions said to do, just snug them with some red lock tite and I was good to go.


Put everything back in and man, it's so nice to have a shifter that works like it should. With the little rubber shift boot that comes with it, I hear virtually no more noise than with the stock shifter. Nice short crisp shifts, I'm a happy gto owner now.


Can't wait to get my coilovers bushings and swaybar installed next weekend. It's gonna be set up pretty great at that point.

If I can get the car aligned in time I'll try and stop in. Got the coilovers and swaybar plus some bushings installed today. Need to adjust one corner tomorrow for height and then fix the front subframe. When I dropped it for the sway, we misaligned it by about a half inch and now it's to the driver side. Easy fix. Did not get the camber bushings installed in the rear yet nor did I align the cradle. Just didn't have the time and I'm tired so I'll just let the person doing the alignment finish that part. I don't drive this daily so there's no worries there.


Thanks for the welcomes guys. Glad to be here.

When I did mine i marked all 4 holes so I could line it back up. Then used crow bars and a tow strap to get that sob back in line.

I've since adjusted the ride height in the pass front. It's almost dead on. I'm getting a good bit of scrub on turn in. Ittl go to the alignment shop this week hopefully. Next at the latest. But I have to say, I loove the way this thing drives now. And holy Moses I have good brakes! The bushings up front really made a difference in brake pedal feel. It's terrific.
