I'd like even brighter reverse lights than the 50w I have listed in my sig as well if anyone knows of better bulbs now since these are several years old at this point.
I wouldn't know anymore. I just buy cheap ebay bulbs. They last about 18 months for me with my use. That's why I have so many hid connector pigtails.....

They usualy run half of that price when you go strait to the source that grins them.

Another one to try is Delta*cams. I know that they can weld them, not sure if they have options of weld and grind or just grind.

Just purchased a new spare 10 lbs NX Nitrous Express bottle . With only a 100 shot,4.181:1 gears and lots of other prep work that I have done (with more to go),I should have a decent hard hitting car come next year .Be nice to have cams available at a good price .But it seem our platform is overlooked .

Yes, we need cams option on it's own for those who do not want to spend lots of money on high compression motor.

I'll look into them. I might have called them already...

I reached out to a few companies a while back, they can do regrinds but the problem is more on the tuning side (and of course the cost of the whole operation). Only 1 BK1 3.8 has been tuned on cams and it took BTR's tuner 6hours on a dyno and no one has done bk2 yet. Travis with MT Motorsports is working on a set of NA and a set of boosted cams (not regrinds), but they're not yet available. Once he's got those done we can start getting the tuning for them, but who knows how they will go. From what i've seen with these ECU's, they're not easy to work with.

Unfortunately we've found the limit which are cams so this motor isn't going to make any more power without tearing the heads off. I'm working with MT Motorsports to build a high compression 3.8 that will put down some good numbers though, so plenty more to come.

I swapped out ballast earlier this year with no improvement.

So new relay and a different connector for the relay control coming off the drivers side fog light connector. I have several HID type 2 pole female connectors I get when I swap out HID bulbs. Found some matching male connectors so I can use them al as a splice in. But the male connectors I got when the shell is filed down fits the OE connector quite well. Better than what I had with one wire stabbed into the OE connector.

Much better last night.

I had an outing in Michigan canceled mid though because of snow a few years ago. It was an interesting couple of laps though!

Rear should be higher than front, due to where rear sits on the control arm.

I canít identify the rates on the springs themselves, but as of 2013 it looks like BC was building kits with 5k/8k f/r spring sets. This kit was purchased in 2015, so Iím assuming itís the same.

Tomorrow oil change, air filter charge, in and out detailing, check rear differential.
Can't wait to get it back on the road.

Congrats! Mine is currently in kid-gloves mode awaiting replacement parts and the modifications and custom parts to support those parts... Fingers crossed it's road worthy before September.
