    why you?

    cause you run the dog shit out of that thing. put some isky springs in and you should be fine for a few seasons if everything else is right. you will definatly run 10 flat at firebird with that extra 50 lbs. on the seat.

    Uncle Vince hooked my heads up too. When you head over to his shop tell him Brian said hello. Have you had a ride in Hellbound train?

    Hell, go to a garage sale in Golden Shores and pickup a 16 coil box spring mattress and strip it. It'll run good and you'll sleep better!!!!!!

    The Isky Tool Room springs are the best on the market. They cost some $$$ but I think there are worth it.

    I wouldn't have a clue on the et.....not a clue. Chris is 10 flat on that sticky water possible, I thought it was .2-.4 slower.... read that somewhere maybe not ?

    Yep!

    Seriously those gold stripe springs have been holding up in my last 496 real well. 3 or 4 seasons on them now and they are still perfect.

    Man that's a bummer!! At least they'll be fresh and ready to run for phoenix. I could use a new set on the intakes. I think they're a tad weak on the seat.
