If i wasn't going with forced induction, I wouldn't of had to buy so many expensive parts.

Wow, lol. And thats with you doing all the labor yourself. Should definitely be worth it at the end though. Cant wait to see you complete this build.

Any idea what your going to do for traction? Do you have a power number in mind that you are trying to get? Looks sweet so far. Keep it up.

Those ball joint spacers look awesome. Make sure you lower the front end enough to take advantage of the improved geometry.

BTW- can your friend make me a pair of those???

Wanna do 600whp on 10 to 12 psi and may do a high boost tune as well
Just depends on my fuel setup. Traction is gonna be hard to get. Nitto 555R's have worked good for me before. But mostly top end pull with the my exhaust housing size and my rear end gears being somewhat high.

There more like adapters so I can run hiem joints on my lower control arms but there is room for adjustment on the adapters to run them as spacers. My friend has the file saved on his work computer... he said it could turn into a liability issue with his work... but probably can get him to cut some more out as an off-road use item. Just the metal its cut out of is very expensive and they inventory the metal to work orders. Ill see what I can do.

Most legit build ever! I've always thought it would be sick to LS swap a suby! Glad to see somebody actually doing it. Especially turboed too! Cant wait to see it all done!
