Hey slantzilla
Im not very familiar with racecar suspensions, what’s the piece visible in this pic welded to the cage right above the passenger-side wheel?

Travel limiter. It controls how much or how little the front end rises. There's one on each side.

My new Smith Brothers pushtubes were here waiting for me yesterday so I am off to the shop to work on the car. I had them make these in 3/8" tube.

Naw, one of my old racing buddies called them that. Here's what one looks like compared to a stocker.

Also got the "Bed of Snakes" header and the intake installed yesterday, as well as more work on the wiring.

Nice. Can you tell us a little about the header? Pipe diam out of flanges, then steps up to, then approx. length to collector? Looks like about 36" to collector, maybe. I suppose I can wait til Clay City too...

Thanks,

Lou

Lou, I honestly don't know what sizes they are, just that they are a true equal length header.

Sandy, true dat. They are also probably the most expensive steel tube Slant headers on the planet.

I'm just hoping they don't kill too much low end. :oops:
