Bought a FW 8.8 L/S (with 3.08 gears lol) for $100

Taking it apart in my "fab unit" to swap gears keeping it drums because its simple.

You can see the 5.0 in the background waiting to go in.

Thought about getting stupid with a letter cam but decided against it and will leave it stock. But will tune out EGR and cats.

Picked up some used Torque Monster headers.

Anyone know where I can get the gasket for the drivers side connection?

Nice!

You may want to give Al's a call to see if they can send you one. I have their number if you need it.

Forgot all about this thread.

Springs came with the kit.

I bought a frame plate kit off DR to go from coils to coilovers on the front.

Moved into a house so i have all my tools out of the fab lab.

Should start posting more pictures here soon.
