New rims on but still have to paint the rotors and calipers before the rim design has it'* full effect. Removed the factory air box and installed the new cone filter I had stuffed in the GT'* fender well and moved over all the billet stuff that would work. Off to fabricate a mount for the PCM since the box is gone. Not so great cell phone pictures but the real camera is charging ........

Installed a STB from a 3800 impala yesterday and cleaned the engine bay a little. I ran out of degreaser so I had to call it quits

I never had a chance to take it for a good run, but it does seem a little more planted in turns at higher speed.

Got the new 3 core aluminum radiator for the Bonnie lined up today! Screw those 100+ days coming up this summer. Total cost = $78 plus a Chinese Buffet dinner ($12.99)!! Shook up a new Mustang on the freeway on the way home from the radiator shop. New windshield going in tomorrow. Love it when a plan comes together.....

mine had a thunk noise coming from the rear when i had a car load of people and went over decent size bump. took it back to where i bought it twice and they couldnt figure it out. and also just a kind of loose feeling compared to my 03 that came with stb'*. i found you can get the gm ones new for 30 bucks so i got both and i cant believe the difference, no more thunk at all. and everything is solid when i go over rough roads. if they are that cheap cant believe its not standard

I got my magnaflow muffler installed yesterday. Still trying to decide on a tip. Leaning towards a simple turndown seems there'* no cutout in my bumper
