I have a couple of earlier threads here (56 Corvette and Adjustable Front Suspension) where I uploaded photos of the front suspension under construction. I tried, but was unable to reload those photos - guess that's not allowed.

Ill have to check out your earlier threads... Everytime I talk with Ron I learn something new. Hes been a great resource for info and parts as well. Keep us posted with your project!

Dry Sump is Dailey Engineering Signature Series. The pump bolts directly to the pan and eliminates the suction lines. The pump pulls directly from the sump.

Wow, some nice pieces. Looking forward to hearing it run.

Hey, didnít you post a teaser picture a while ago of some carbon fiber air ducting for this car? How did they turn out? I might be confusing it with someone elseís project. If so, sorry.

Yes, I built carbon fiber ductwork for the front brakes. It worked out quite well. I will post some photos. In the meantime, here are some rather poor cell phone photos of the new motor in its current state. Hogan is doing some modes to the intake and the harness for the Motec ECU is in work. should have it on the dyno in the next month.

Just got my Forgeline GA3Rs - 18X12 front and 18X`12.5 rear. I trial fit the fronts and the barrel cleared the control arms, tie rod, and sway bar up to 30 degrees of wheel turn throughout full suspension travel. I will mount the tires next week (335 front/345 rear) and verify the tire clearances. I don't expect any problems.
