New wheels arrived today. Im having a hard time finding a good set of tires in stock. Im probably going 255/40/17 and 275/40/17. Im going back and forth on whether to run a drag radial on the rear or not. My focus is more on it being able to corner well than launch hard on the street.
Leroy is finally about to get some love. I found a reliable guy to fix the frame rail rust I have. He is also going to paint the engine bay and my new cervinis 2.5" cowl hood. I also just received word my 363 is shipping to me this upcoming week. A lot of great progress is about to happen. The only thing holding me up from getting it back on the road will be the PA 4R70W. Hopefully it will ship some time in April. The door panels I ordered in December came this week.
About half of the maximum motorsports max grip package has shown up. I actually ordered it in two stages so I should have the rest in a couple weeks. The distributor I need to clear the holley hi-ram has arrived as well as the 2.5" cervinis cowl hood to the clear the holley hi-ram. I also picked up a set of aerocatch lathes for the new hood.
Well American Muscle is trash. I place the order for my engine back in February and I was being told it would ship around the third week of March. Around that time I received and email saying the charge could not be captured on my card. There was zero reason for this so I reached out to them and they said everything was fine and my orser would ship in 24 hours. Fast forward another week and I get a second email saying my card couldnt be captured. I called them and this time they tried to capture with me on the phone and they still could not. I called my card company and they 3 way called back to american muscle as they werent even seeing an attempt to charge from american muscle. American muscle still couldnt figure it out so we reentered all of my information. This time the card went through without issue. I was then told again my order was about to ship. That was a week ago and the charge has fully posted against my card. I reached out AGAIN to see why my order still hasnt shipped and now they are claiming it wont ship until 3/2023... im trying as hard as I can to give these people money and they can not get their together. Meanwhile Summit Racing has one of these engines in stock every couple weeks. I may have to tell AM to pound sand and get it through Summit.
The thing is though the guy Im getting my trans from has 3 in stock and both summit and jegs can ship one next week. Unfortuantely AM is 2k cheaper... This is completly american muscle being incompetent.
