      I know you already bought the plate clutch. Don't get a twin disk if you want stock type drivablitly. Granted i have a giant 1st gear the twin disk isnt the most fun on the street. And you will break more parts.

      Could have been anywhere, I was all over the place. I drove to the VWoA meet, then to the sandy point meet, then to Sonic, then to Coconut Joes, then to Kent Island, then to Annapolis Cars and Coffee. She got whored out this weekend

      I've been calling around for the best price, least wait, etc... But right now its looking like I'm going to get an LSX 454ci block, Precision 285cc heads, and throw it all together at the shop. New engine alone should make what I'm making with the blower and probably more torque

      I'm selling off a bunch of my current LS parts... doubt anyone here needs something but if you do, HOLLA!

      Nope its been running perfect... I just broke a stub axle so while the car was down I decided to upgrade. They are machining my hubs to a larger spline so it shouldn't happen again.

      Lol well I broke the alternator and changed the cam while I was there.

      But really it makes sense before it does explode. I'm at the limit of the stock block so might as well upgrade and still be able to sell current parts.
