    "Yes it did".. what? You got the correct bar that is able to bolt up without mod's?

    Well.. if that's the case.. then I got left out of the loop and have 2 useless bars sitting in my shop right now. :huh:

    Sorry, mishap, Chris is right. While I was under there this morning I looked at it. It's not correct.

    Thanks for the reply, Chris. Looking forward to getting the right piece and setting it up this coming spring. (y)

    Ever get your side stripe design proportions figured out?

    So Chris, with the unfortunate requirement to increase your motors power earlier than planned. does this put any set back on your testing the sway bars?

    Fitting no... but testing yes. I have been running the latest, near perfect bar since just before SEMA and during the OUSCI event. I cannot take advantage of its adjustable qualities due to the misalignment of the holes which is the last thing to be fixed. Otherwise testing and fitment is done. The bar works well in the 1.25 setting.

    Why do you need more power, Chris?

    More gear and a tad bit more cam to utilize that extra rpm range seems to be the ticket from the little bit of footage that I've watched so far.

    oh snap!.. literally. that really sucks and sorry to hear.

    the silver lining is that the 363's are baddass powerplants. I did a set of heads for my buddies car years ago and that motor made over 550 at the wheels. Talk about rev happy.. and you surely won't be dissapointed at all. Good luck with it all.

    I got an email today from John at Addco. He just got back from three weeks vacation. He is going to look into the status of our bars. If I hear anything from him, I will post it.

    Chris, I hope I did not cut in on you. I'm putting my suspension in and want to get the new bar in there too.

    Micah
