after working with ray over at eagle, gonne do their 395 stroker kit and the armor coating with all forged guts so i can wing this thing out and not worry about it.
cause if there's one thing i've learned in life it's adding displacement equals happiness, i've never seen a sad person driving something the size of a big block.

so the 395 stroker, comp extreme fi cam kit, actually making the ac work are the solid plans for once i get all these purchases paid off this year, i'm not entirely satisfied with how this pypes system sounds so i've narrowed it down to 3 things: flowmaster 40s like everyone else, spintechs like i had on my s10 or the supertrapps i've wanted since high school which i'm leaning towards since they are tunable so i can quite it down when need be and go full nascar when i want to on weekends for shows. also i think that core 3 vette front brakes kit that uses the 325 rotors and the ssbc dual piston calipers will get tossed on the back, the fit stock gbody front and camaro front and that is what my rear calipers are now so by my best guess they may fit.

ok so i decided this year will be fix a few things and enjoy it since i didnt get to last year with blowing it up and swapping and all that so i will get the ac fixed, bert the parts i've ordered installed and just enjoy this summer i ordered the kore3 vette 325mm bbk i wanted the bigger ones but i dont want to have to order new wheels after just getting my n90 reps. at some point in the future i may order the gnx reps from g-body parts online so i can get the 18's

got the calipers brackets and adapters, just gotta order the hawk pads and rotors and i think im going to try out the skf x-tracker wheel bearings from what i'm reading they are a lower rolling resistance that are supposed to be stronger and my base cheap as i could find summit racing brand ones are getting a shade noisy and one saide takes more effort than the other.

ordered hurst line lock, b&m stealth ratchet and all the crap to install it plus the dual button controller thing for the shifter so i can run the line lock and some nitrous off it. ordered some skf x tracker blazer hubs to replace my cheapest hubs i could find when i did the blazer brake swap. they make some interesting claims about strength. still need to get the ac going and that will be about it for spring late summer i think i may work on nitrous but i still have to figure out the fi-tech or decide to ditch it for a msd atomic efi setup. ill be starting all this once all this stuff shows up from holley middle of next month, i though i was ordering pretty simple stuff but they have already pushed back my shipment once.

I'm curious about the SC-EFI comment. Why are you ditching the FI Tech, for an MSD? Why MSD over Holley?
I don't know if its my own incompetence or perhaps a bad unit but the car runs rich at low rpm and leans out top and and refuses to save any corrections. once its full time driving weather i'm going to reset it and do a complete relearn and drive it like a granny for a few days because admittedly as soon as i had the efi installed and it did the initial learn i was going hard in the paint with that car. Perhaps it needs a few days of normal driving to learn bottom end fuel trims then go ham on it again, but if it wont, i'm going msd atomic as im going to put a full msd ignition and nitrous on it, and msd atomic is setup to control nitrous and timing curves and seems much more end user friendly, i suppose if i was a actual tuner all the crap fitech can do is cool but i'm not, so it isn't. and i know its inability to tune properly led to my dyno disappointment as i know that engine is capable of more.
