Your autocross video is awesome! Looks like a great club. I used to belong to a laid-back club, but the club closest to me is super type-A and it takes a lotta the fun out of it. Car looks great. And sounds even better!

Car is aligned with aggressive street and moderate race setting with -2.5 camber. Corner weighted with me in the car and fuel at 2700 lbs with a really nice balance. I have another AutoX May 23, so I'll post up opinion and video of changes then.

I got a chance to take a sprinted drive this morning..... She tracks straight and true, but man oh man can I can tell the difference cornering. This is gonna be a riot!

On a side note, the shop that set my car up builds very high end race and rod cars..... A car they had on site holds a bonnieville record. Anyway, a few of the guys were poking around and under my car and were really impressed with my build. Not to shabby for a shade tree mechanic but honestly I could not have done it with great parts from the likes of Silvermine motors, T3, CX Racing, Wiring specialties, and the endless great advice and direction I gather from HybridZ.

Bumpers are from Futofab...... Nice fit and finish and they came powder coated black.

Top 4 AutoX today but sadly no video. My friend screwed up and shot 10 minutes of the ground before turning off the video for my run. Race again June 4. New suspension bits and alignment was awesome. Car sticks like glue... Very point and shoot.

For what it's worth, if I did it again and I may still modify..... I would have run an in tank pump. Yesterday I drove to work for some grins and giggles. The car sat out in 105 heat all day and when she started the fuel pump was wheezing and buzzing hot since the fuel in the car had a hard time keeping the pump cool. I was real low on fuel so it just sat in the fuel cell stewing. After fill up and some driving she is back to normal..... But again, I wouldn't have this to worry about with an in tank pump. My .02.

Never had that happen due to heat alone. Might want to check your vent line and fuel filters. I have had a rollover valve get stuck in my vent line-pulled such a vacuum on my tank I couldn't get the fill cap off until I cut the vent line. It was one of those hot days at the track. But the car was still running like a raped ape!

I'm working on a cold air intake, but didn't want to lose the fresh air venting. I used heavy duty 1 1/2 vacuum pipe Into a bulkhead fitting and some black ABS to create a ram funnel to re-route the "in"

box. It turned out really clean and super functional. Now I have the upper 3.5 inch hole available to complete my CAI. post-38304-0-47574700-1498713969_thumb.jpgpost-38304-0-43419300-1498713995_thumb.jpgpost-38304-0-83902800-1498714015_thumb.jpgpost-38304-0-28312400-1498714070_thumb.jpgpost-38304-0-56667000-1498714039_thumb.jpg

The later Zs have a small hole in front of the frame horn, and the air goes through that into the vents under the dash that have the push/pull knobs to open and close. Someone told me if you leave those open, they help keep fumes coming into the car from the back, not sure if that's true though.

Cold air intake.... of sorts.  I didn't want to cut up the bulkhead so I just ran the filter to the blast of air coming through the old fresh air vent location.  Combined with the hood vents, I am getting a ton of cooler clean air to my intake now.  Before and after pics.  Jim
