No wax before dip. In fact, part of the process is a wash with Dawn or equivalent to cut wax. Then pre-dip spray to help adhesion.

No, for ease of removal, dip should be thick. I've sprayed...

Sounds like you could use some practice dipping. Mine came off fine, and I dipped it again. I've dipped thin in past projects, and that's an issue. But if you get enough dip to give it several...

I'm no help, I'm dipping mine pearl white this fall. I have all the supplies I need. If you want to do a matte finish, dip may be your more economical solution. It's definitely not as resilient as...

Yes, mostly. If you have 58PSI at all times because you have a garden hose for a supply and return line, and you tune for AFR, your adjusted VE table will reflect it. Similarly, if you have 58PSI...

If you have a digital fuel pressure gauge that you're logging your pulls against, why didn't you mention you had that data? Did I miss you mention it somewhere?

Alright, a quick Google search, and yes I see the threads on the bucket issue. So yeah, I would expect you've improved some by switching to the 8.1 bucket. However, I'd also wager that your current...

I'd have to know more about what is meant by "halfway point", as I haven't inspected the fender lips of a GTO before. However, if cutting is on the table, I'd cut small reliefs through the arch of...

I never really considered grill-less, but with that big intercooler, I like grill-less! I couldn't do it because I have no forced induction, but if I did, I'd be all about showing it off.

I believe what you're referring to is an adapter, not a spacer. Make sure your adapter is hub centric or you risk vibration.

If 1" brings you to the fender, don't go 1". Do something like 20mm...

No. If it's truly an LS3 cam, it won't have a cam reluctor for the cam sensor. You can make it work with a cam sensor relocation and a conversion box, but no, it won't work as is.
