I flipped my overload leaf to the top. Never had an issue except on hard launches.

I'm running on 2" blocks and don't feel it bottom out but I know that my bump stops keep the contact points nice and shiny. I suspect that 3" would be too far on mine without some minor surgery. I prefer not to use blocks (mine came with them) but it did leave me enough room to run a rear sway bar. Some photos here http://nwdatsuns.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=83 if you're interested.

How low did you get out of that?
I've been thinking about cutting my tunnel and welding. I'm looking for a 3 inch or s drop.
I wanna be as low as my last 510

When the engine vibrates will the valve cover hit your tower brace? If so…

The real concern is the front of the valve cover hitting the hood. Its a L20b, so an extra 3/4 inch taller than L16/18.

I would probably torch the strut bar, and bend it up a bit...

Here's my awesome garage!

So today, I put on my brake mc and i just need to put the hardlines on.
I need to install slave cylinder for the clutch. I don't know what it's called but I'm missing the piece that attaches from the slave cylinder to the throw out bearing arm.

Also, I made a coil mount. I'm gonna see how it works out and I don't see anything bad happening.

I just need the t shape connectors for my dizzy and to put it at tdc still.
Once that's all done, I can just buy some battery wires and then she'll start up :)

I need to figure out where my return lines on my carbs are though.

All I have left to install for her to turn on is the wiring from starter to battery and the coil.

However, I still need to do all the other wiring in the car still but I plan to do that last once the car is working and all.

I'm not sure how it will work out.
I've seen it on a few muscle cars so the worst I can do is try.

My battery came!! Next week, she'll be starting up :)

anyone know where to get the t connection of an el dizzy?
