hey everyone haven't posted in a while but trust me there has been lots of work being done to the old gentleman's express

Engine/Performance

was having massive kr problems especially at high rpms would spike to like 8-9* sometimes higher on 94 octane
found the problem to be the OEM plug wires replaced with taylor thundervolts now the kr is dead 0* even on the hottest days at wot

belt slip(supercharger) problem wouldnt hold boost correctly past 5k rpm put in larger idler pulley from like a late model 454 ck3500 fits perfectly holds boost exactly as it should

New struts are in the back with new mounts elc system is still hooked up and functional
monroe-matic air assist ( there blue and cheap and are amazing ) handles like a brand new car couldn't believe the difference
now i realize how bad the front struts are, gunna replace those very soon.

front brakes have all been replaced with ac delco stuff pads rotors new calipers back brake are next on my hit list

brake lines exploded when i was putting in the struts so i had my mechanic redo the back lines with nickel lines
gunna tackle the fronts myself

need another brake booster junkyard one is on its way out

fixed the exhaust ticking (temporarily) back header gasket is garbage (anyone know where i can get new gaskets for headers??)

new muffler got put on dynomax super turbo vs my old knockoff magnaslow sounds alot better quieter so more whine :)

BODY WORK

had a leak in my trunk water kept getting in found out its a hole in my wheel well the circumference of a pop can
temporarily patched but soon to be fixed as i work at a body shop


probably more things im forgetting but i will be taking photos of the car soon and posting an update part 2 with pictures and hopefully ill get a shot at COTM next month


AND LASTLY I FINALLY RAN THE CAR AT THE 1/4 at cayuga (toronto motorsport speedway or whatever)

best run of the day was a 14.5 with a horrible reaction time of like .519 but was my first time at the track ever so take it easy on me
also what mods do i need to break 13's??

stay tuned and thanks for reading, any input on questions i asked will be greatly appreciated!!!
