I'm running a 10mm spacer in the back and it clears still you could get away with not doing it and have more room

Ah, that changes things! So your offset is effectively only -6mm from what I've got now. And it shows how much the shortened trailing arms really help.

Great work, I can't wait to see and hear the car in person.

Lol we will see how many joyrides will happen. The Davis trip will most likely be a shake down drive. Half tempted have my friend drive it up while I tune it a bit. Would like to get it on the rollers before Davis but that probably won't happen

Took this pig out for its maiden voyage today, I think I have some trans issues with it unfortunately because it has this insane vibration in it. But besides that. It's stupid I don't know what the hell I'm going to do with it

What did you use to attach that PCV hose to your air filter? I'm about to do the same to mine because I have no room for a real intake.

I drilled a hole in the air filter and pushed a barb fitting in and secured the hose on the other end. Seems to work great

So I've put about 100 miles on the swap and man, I wish I would have done this swap a long time ago. The driveability is so awesome. Its not making alot of power right now. But I am extremely happy with it so far. One thing I will redo is the transgo kit when I swap converters
