Well...in the process of changing out my shitty stock clutch. I'm putting in a stage 3 clutch rated for 365hp...my stealth currently has 164hp so I know I'll be just fine Got the tranny out, and realized my stock flywheel was cracked. So I'll be getting a new one of them tomorrow.

Pics

Removing some stuff to make room



Tranny on the floor...and you can see the wet spot under the car. Well there was an elbo that was connected to the tranny, and that elbow happen to be an elbo for coolent. When the tranny dropped, so did ALL of my coolent...all over my brother :nutkick It was horrible.



Thats all the pics I got for now...I'll get more when the new clutch goes it.

Picked up my new fly wheel today. Will be getting it in Wed afternoon. Also picked up some new plugs and plug wires...should help the car. I know my plugs are shot, because the idiot I bout the car from had over filled the engine by 3 quarts of oil. :smash and before I got the oil changed, it was blowing all kinds of smoke...so I know my plugs are shot!

Well I'm a major redneck, so I'd have to go that way myself :beerchug but that's just me! I always wanted to drop a blown HEMI in a 70's Colt station wagon

Well I finally got the car buttoned today now I'm at work, no sleep, and the car still isn't drivable. The clutch is in :beerchug but I didn't have time to get coolent into the engine. And I need an lignment now and new tie rod ends (had to take struts off to get the half shafts out) Relieved my tie rod ends were shot when we was doing this. So I'll get that taked care of. But I DID move the car from the garage to the drive way (garage if for the truck damn it ) and I love the new clutch so far...

And I also changed the plugs and wires today...plugs were horrible ( used som many becasue I like em haha)

New clutch...stange 3 racing/street clutch. Brand new fly wheel. (That black thingy sticking out of the pressure plate is just an alignment tool)


Plugs and wires and beer

Well...drove the car to work today. Ran amazing. When you go from a clutch slipping all the time to a new stage 3 clutch its like going from messing around with farm animals to dating Carie Underwood....


Anyways...I wont be able to see the full potention of this clutch till after the 500 mile break in period!

Car goes in the shop tomorrow for new tie rod ends and alignment!

Yea not likely Took it to the shop to get new tie rods. Well it needed a half shaft also, and now it needs struts and strut mounts.

And I picked up up from the shop...the steering is all jacked up and I could barely keep it on the road!
