I haven't finished them, I wasn't paying attention when I put the front driver side rotor on, noticed afterward that I put a passenger side rotor on driver side, they're side specific.

I bought a new pair of BFG's for the rears, getting those tomorrow. It's still a long way from being done but getting closer.

I don't have an extra stock '88 rear sway bar if anyone know's of one locally ? I do have extra mounting brackets. Otherwise I'll be ordering a matched set of performance bars from R_Runner over the winter.

I cut off the old mild steel portion and cat that was put on for an emissions test a few years ago, ground off the old rusty weld, I need to pick up a reducer, 2-1/2" to a 2" to join it to my Borla I mig welded it with 308 SLI wire and a bottle of tri-mix.
The entire exhaust system is now T-304 Stainless, the West Coast Fiero headers and downpipe are ceramic coated black, gonna clean up the welds a bit and polish the lower section a bit.

Finally got the exhaust finished today, Nice thing about the '88 coupe is that it has dual cut out on rear fascia.

The reason I haven't updated my thread for a while! Sigh ! Formula is destroyed, I am cutting it up to salvage what remains. I was very busy with work this past year, bought a 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD LT reg cab 6.0 litre, 4x4 and last week I bought a 35' Gold Rush Gooseneck, tandem 9500 lb. axle, all aluminum car hauler. I am going down to Carlisle Pa. In a few weeks. I contacted Gold Rush located in Denver Pa. it's only 100 Kim's from Carlisle, so I'm hoping to kill two birds with one stone and take the trailer for a little upgrade(s).

The truck puts me in the commercial category, GVWR, need annual inspection, yellow sticker. Pita ! I was getting conflicting information, initially, Service Ontario supervisor told me I didn't need the yellow sticker on my trailer, wrong !

I read through the MTO website, double checked probably being overly cautious but I finally spoke to MTO Enforcement Supervisor Gord, he was very helpful.There is no classification on trailer, what makes a trailer an RV, " House Trailer ", not so clearly defined on MTO site, I was told it must have a washroom, bed and a sink.

The retarded thing now is I can't even pull my tiny little Fiero trailer with my truck, it's only 4'x4' box trailer, not that I would want to but if I did that trailer would require a yellow sticker, annual inspection.

I was only a little banged up, another vehicle caused a delay in the intersection, going southwest in an eastbound lane ? Then this duckhead came through a very very stale red, admitted it to me, apologized and agreed to pay for my car, according to the cop he hit me at 55-60 kmh. Yeah right ! He was on the gas button, he's not even as old as my car. I took a face full of debris, spitting out my passenger side mirror. The day after, cop shows up and tells me he denied running the red, automatically ( NOT ! ) my fault, BS ! Sigh !

Thanks Nick, The '88 Formula is stripped to the bone, I saved everything that was still good. I bought a 35' GoldRush all aluminum enclosed car hauler a couple weeks ago. http://www.goldrushinc.com

The trailer has hydraulic landing gear, winch, breaker panel etc. I'm planning some upgrade(s) for the trailer, first thing is toilet, sink and a bed. I contacted Motive Equipment Inc. arrange to purchase. http://www.motiveequipment.com/locomoti ... 219-me219b

Since the Formula got wrecked, I put that drivetrain in the black coupe, switched everything over to make it a standard. At least I can drive it meantime, I didn't get it 100% completed this year, need to reattach headliner, interior back together and a few things.

I bought an F40 6spd. from Joe a few years ago and finally getting everything together for 3800/F40. I bought the 05-07 Cobalt SS aftermarket 4340 axles from the Driveshaft Shop, Spec aluminum flywheel and PP stage 3+ clutch and htob spacer, got a new intermediate shaft from e-Bay. I was searching for a Quaife LSD and there are two different part numbers, I called Quiafe about the difference, they told me that the only difference is one is listed as a Saab part number but they are identical unit in every way, same spline count etc I found a NOS unit on EBay in the U.K. much cheaper even with the shipping. I need to install the LSD.

I'll need to get the flywheel balanced to the engine but I want to wait until I get the engine completed, because I want to go turbo, I will need to lower the compression, first I want to get the ZZ performance aluminum heads before they are sold out again, I figure the Pistons, cam etc. will be easier to obtain at a later time.

I'm looking at this Speeduino.com to run EMS. It's arduino based and uses Tunerstudio, I have a lot to learn in this area but it looks like it would work for my application.

Edit; something for air to air, driverside fastback quarter only, directed in-out,
