    MONTE CARLO Help me figure out this body!

    '86 Monte Carlo LS is what this car SHOULD be, but wtf is going on with my body panels? Things were switched/replaced at some point and I want to get it all matching one way or another so that I can do the needed body work and paint. The fenders aren't matching.

    Cam Swap

    I recently swapped in a Thunder Racing Cam in my SS. I have it set where I'm happy with it, I launched it hard a few times and could smell the clutch so it's definitely making power. I'm probably at the limits of the LS7 Clutch in it.

    Another 78 monte question about front lower A-arm bushings

    When installing an A-arm the front bushing fits snug in the bracket but the rear bushing has about a 1/4 gap in it. Basically,Is it supposed to have a gap in it and supported by the front or is there supposed to be spacers in the back bushing?

    Someone asked me if there was info about this so I figure this would help some people out. Putting a T56 6spd into a Gbody is pretty simple and straighforward, not much to it, just like installing any other Transmission pretty much. It's good to start with getting all the parts: T56 6spd...
