Or buy every single one you can get your hands on, and turn a fat profit when guys start calling.
yeah. might even be worth scrapping some lowly base wagons (do they have the same rear fenders? or are the V's flared?)

Yay!

I wont bitch about the 2.55 griptech that's MIA, only because I'm not 100% certain it isnt in the garage somewhere... @adam112

But once I clean up the gasket surface and get it together check out the for sale section.

Original main shaft was not up to the task (from Gforce) and took out the snout bearing.

Jokerz had a new one machined out of better materials.

Jesse,, Is that a machined plate where the fins and orange rubber seal would go? I have Jokerz Chaos, and mine is not like that?
BTW, that shit sucks that happened on the dyno..
Later, Jeff

Yes - the TVS2300 uses a different gasket pattern for the ZR1 intercooler system (totally different than the ZL1 / LSA), as well as the snout being front-facing for the ZR1; so that adapter plate along with the custom snout is required to make a TVS2300 work on the LSA.

Meh. Whenever I get the nerve to fuck around with ethanol timing I guess. I'm happy with an honest 830 dynojet HP on pump.


At first I realized I ordered the wrong DR size, but after checking fitment... a taller tire would probably rub quite a bit. So the tire is a bit small (and looks it) but they seem pretty damn grippy.

And yeah I might have them powdercoated after all... lol

I’m pretty sure the 295 is supposed to fit on lowered V’s. Nice center caps homo! ;)

Goin bronze to match I assume?

You like my bulge.


In the ET street R and S/S, the only two options are a 275 (26.1 OD) and a 305 (28" OD).

There is no current 295 size that I see on MT's website. The 305 is obviously a better choice in cross section and OD, but I didnt want to fuck around with rolling fenders as I'd like to DD these for a bit.

But... the coilovers seem to be doing a great job and I have room for adjustment, so I'll probably go 305 next time around.
