    72Z, are bigger sway bars useless without SFC's?

    I dont disagree but, trying to avoid modifications which are permanent and or those most people wouldnt do to an original Z. My car is a V6 Berlinetta. Nobody cares about those, LOL.

    72Z, are bigger sway bars useless without SFC's?

    You might find a drastic improvement just by adding SFC’s and solid subframe mounts. My car is dramatically stiffer after adding both.

    Harwood 4" bolt on Wrap or Paint?

    383 Blueprint engine, what headers are you using

    I bought the black ones and took them to a local powder coater and had high luster silver ceramic put on them. I did this because I wanted to fit the headers and make any mods and not destroy an expensive finish. Cost was within 50$ plus my time.

    Beginning of a turbo build

    Should be quicker than that at those power levels. Guy at work does drag n drive stuff with a single turbo junkyard 5.3 in a fairmont wagon. He says 8-900 at the crank and runs high 8’s/ low 9’s.
