Thanks guys!

So, the shocks.  Right now my droop is stopped by the shocks.  I could have gotten away with 2" shorter shocks but since I already had them that option was out.  So right now I will bottom out the chassis and the shocks at the same time.  We don't want that.  That is roughly 2" of shock shaft.   Currently I am not entering the last bypass tube by short stroking them.  I could get 2" longer ends for the shocks but that is gonna get expensive plus I am not too keen on my lower arm design.  I will have to get limit straps for the droop after the modification. 

Yeah, I will build a new chassis next time HAAA!

So those Fox shocks.  I am currently working with Fox on a new anodize facility in GA.  Actually Fox as a whole is moving there.  I have seen those shocks up close and spoke with an engineer about them.  Pretty rad!  It makes me wonder if this will be incorporated into the bypass shocks too. 

As for the dash, I mis spoke.  Its the vapor unit that I am looking at.

Man that looks sick!! What colors are you going with?
I have had great luck with a Trailtech Voyager, they build some good stuff.

looks great....do tell us why your not making full use of the bypass shocks now?      yes the busa will run w/o the dash. i have never heard of that dash but will be interesting to see it in person!

Man, it has been busy....

I DID however get some hours in the garage last week to get some work done on the sheet metal for the car.  Somedays I wish I would just buy a car so I dont have to always be building...LOL.   Or I should just not cut a perfectly good car in half.  HAAAA!

Well, I am down to mounting my chase bar and wing onto the car for the sheet metal.  I have all my brackets for rear brakes and then off to paint!

I'm going to also rebuild the lower rear arms so that I get all the benefits of the bypass.  Long story, but I will have to use limit straps so I dont kill my C/V's.  Not the end of the world.

During testing, I noticed that my chain would tighten and loosen as the sprocket turned.  Well, I think when I cut my sprocket, the steel moved as the water jet cut.  No worries, i'll cut a new one but I will have tabs built into the cut so the steel doesn't move around.

I am also going to run a trailtech vapor dash.  The busa gauges are very hard to read while sitting in the car.  The trailtech unit also has the capabilities to have a speedo!  I did some research and found that the busa will run without the cluster.  I want to be able to tap into the harness that goes to the gauge cluster to at least have a couple idiot lights for oil pressure, neutral and for the F-I light.  I will have to do some looking to see if the lights are turned on in the cluster or as a signal from the ECU.

so i guess i never paid attention to the manifolds used on the suby. that his huge! prob longer than the up pipes on a 7.3 ford diesel lol    budlight i would most def wrap that infact buy a spray can of 2000* paint ( yes i know its as good as advertised) double wrap that manifold then paint it with that black 2000* paint. that will keep the wrap from fraying on you and the double wrap will help send more heat ( aka drive pressure) to that turbo for better response!

WHen you get the header on the engine,take a torch and heat each side for 2-3 inches and around the gusset red hot to relax the stress in the tube or it will just crack again for sure.

If you do end up with a new header, or making this one all cyborg like mine, something to consider.. Not saying that yours isn't doing the job!

solid info for sure. you forgot the best way to properly route the wg......Borg Warner 6758 efr.  :D  :D
