Re: Bracing for subframe mod

John, what’s your opinion on making the tube section removable? I’d still plate it with 1/4” with welded nuts on the backside, then use 3/16 flanges on the 1 5/8 tube(s). Maybe use 3 3/8 Bolts on the flanges. I like the idea in regards to being able to pull the pan. 1/4" seems a bit thick really th...

Re: Wilwood Front Brake Question

Kinda sounds like something is flexing, such as the caliper bracket.

Re: Bracing for subframe mod

It'll be fine. I've seen some that have nothing for the big crossmember area and they just leave the front crossmember in place.

Re: Bracing for subframe mod

Mine's got a couple 1 5/8 tubes going across, plated same way. I like your idea better with just one and a couple small braces, that'll give you a little more clearance.

Re: Bracing for subframe mod

Yeah that ought to do fine. I did something similar on mine when cutting the rear crossmember out. Of course I'd leave the front one in place when doing this, between it and your angle iron tacked in place it should be fine.

Re: Nitrous wiring question

I think MSD has some diagrams on how to hook those up to the 6AL on their site. Usually you would use the window switch to ground out or supply power to your nitrous activation circuit. Sorry can't say which don't have info on the window switch.

Re: Nitrous wiring question

Have you considered this is a good time to upgrade to a Powergrid vs spending money on the old 6AL and bunch of add on boxes? Has everything you want in it for nitrous. Step Retards, Window Switch, far more control capabilities. This might be a good time...

Re: Composite leaf springs with Caltracs

I've only heard of one guy that tried them on his Maverick, was like 10 years ago and he broke one. Might still be an old post on Yellowbullet about it, again been a long time ago and don't recall what brand they were. I supposed it would also depend how much power the car has to if they can stand u...
