I don't know much about that swap but it looks like it's not exactly a bolt-on?

One thing I like about the Wilwood option is that it's all new parts. Brakes are an area where I'd rather not cut...

Thanks - the kit linked to has the "dust-seal" calipers, does that address the issue?

I used compressed air. If the engine is rotated to the correct position, the air will hold it in place. The job turned out to be much easier than I expected.

If you've installed the Tick master, and you have a clicking sound, your firewall is probably cracked. Your pedal assembly is probably fine.

On my car the clicking continued for a long time, and...

Help me remember what these turn signal bulbs are called

Almost 10 years ago I put new turn signal bulbs in my GTO. They appear blue, but light amber. Since the housing has a clear lens, it looks a little cleaner IMO.

Are these still made? What are they...

Have the new buttons from GTOG8TA, working up the nerve to try to pry open the case. My buttons have been completely rotted out for years now.

The tires will probably make as much difference as all the other parts combined. Do not skimp. You get what you pay for. Expect to spend 1-1.2k for a set of four on the car.

I think that will work, although there may be some benefit to getting the separate adapters linked in post 15 because one of them swivels.

OK, this is all good advice. Thank you.

Any thoughts on why the ticking is so slow? At 2000 crank rpm it sounds like whatever's clicking is only rotating at around 500 rpm. I thought the...

27 seconds into this is when the noise becomes obvious. The engine is running at 2000 rpm at that time.

Job's done. Weight on the wheels didn't hold the shaft enough to tighten with the torque wrench, so impact it was. Things seem fine .... so far!

Same thing happened to me, it was also the steering rack bolts. As I recall, it can be hard to get them sufficiently tight due to the confined area.
