I’m on day 15 work wise and pushing to not work this weekend, you know the trade, anything can happen.

8.8 are easy enough to come by, are you using Explorer and shortening the long side or have you got something else in mind? I may add an 8.8 to the list unless you don’t think it’s needed with a much lower power level.

Keep on keepin on!

Ill do an explorer rear and shorten the long side of it.

The stock dana 30 can handle 300 hp all day long. Put in a G80 from a 740/940 and be done with it. My last ls swapped car had the Dana 30 in it the entire time with zero issues. They hold up really well for the most part. You can also get a locker for them.

Wait, whaaaat? You’re saying to NOT spend money on parts I don’t need? I usually hear....”you need an SLA and a torque arm”, “your car won’t work without an aftermarket K member”....or the best, “you know what you need?”

I may need more friends like you, thanks for the info!

That's funny, when people ask my opinion I tell them all the time they only need to buy x and not y, z or all three for their build. Some people just love to spend money (especially when it isn't theirs) on unnecessary stuff. In my opinion it's all about realistic goals and doing better than you did last time, not trying to beat the other guy.

One neighbour of mine has a car that hasn't moved or even run in almost 10 years because he keeps changing his mind and upgrading parts to beat the other guy. Shame.
