You can see the old silver paint on the bezel vs. the new paint.
Got a new bezel off ebay, waiting for it right now then going to repaint and use a new install kit from Crutchfield.
The switch is for some blue LEDs under the dash, when it gets dark out here I'll take some pics of that.
And I got a pic of my new Edelbrock Performer IAS shocks that I gotta find.

That rear sway bar is going to make a massive difference. Looks like you spent your tax refund properly lol.

The power gains I feel are at higher rpms (3,000+). The K&N FIPK says 6.12 at 5,200rpms. So Im judging on that and saying probally somewhere between 6 and 7hp but only a dyno will tell. Im not going to get it dyno'ed until I add a Flex-A-Lite eFan and then get it tuned with a XCal2. Then Im going to get a Stage 2 cam from Racer Walsh and then dyno it again after that (tuned again of course). And probally from the hp gains on the cam I'll have to get 19lb/hr injectors and maybe a bigger MAF.

On the sound end of it, from the stock intake with the silencer removed (3" Exhaust pipe in place) and a K&N drop in. Way louder but only when you really get on it.

Going to do some driving this weekend so I'll see if theres any MPG's gained.

At the You-Pull-It, I paid $30. Another $25 for some polyurethane bushings, paint and wire wheel I already had. So said and done $55.

Just a hint, if your yard lets you. Bring some penetrating oil and your life will be so much easier. When I first got there not a bolt moved. Went back to the truck, got my bottle of Kryoil, put some on all the bolts & nuts, waited 10 mintues, and they came right off.
