Spring? What about immediate reality? This weekend is plugs and wires (again, but not a catastrophic failure.....just one failed wire, but a new FULL set going in), crossover pipe heat shield, and swaybar endlinks/bushings.

For the spring......CAI revision D. Final version hopefully, with a snorkel/ram air feed into the CAI. Perhaps a cooling duct for the SC nosedrive, and a POSSIBILITY of a quasi-intercooler for the Series 1.

MAYBE a Cam and rockers. Definitely new valvesprings. I'm getting valve float at redline.

hehe...immediate reality would be nice but its been COLD here in OKLA. high today was like 22 and north wind blowing. I am not tough like our northern friends

I wish mine was to where yours is...but at this point it almost feels like trying to polish a turd.

Well, I just made my taillights all red tonight, no more orange! They look amazing!

Spring: new struts/shocks/wheel bearings. Clean engine and interior. Hi-Flow CAT and Pioneer 7500MP HU

And another mod I'm working on now which will remain secret until I get pics.

It looks amazing. What I had done before was just make the bulb red, so at night it looked red. But during the day the orange was still visible of course. And I didn't like it like that.

Now I took it apart and put 2 layers of red tint film on the orange. It looks like it came that way. It looks exactly like the other red pieces. I didn't want to paint it because it wouldn't have looked stock. Anyone who doesn't know about a Bonneville would have no clue I changed it to red. I'll take pics Saturday!
