    haha yea thats why i got the zzp intake tube with k&n dropin filter instead and it means you cant smog your car with it and if you get pulled over in cali you get a fix it ticket/referee lol its not fun

    and there not bad i did my sportlines last year with will so it was my second time doing springs and yea just make sure there right side up and youll be fine the fronts and two bolts on bottom and 3 on top and the rears are literally just one bolt for the shock and your done lol

    make sure you use some lube on the hats tho cause i had a ***** getting them on the springs lol

    How far for me? Google maps says 4 hours, 5 with traffic, but if I wake up at my usual workday time I could be there by 10 and probably not hit any traffic.

    Thanks Hahaha already got the charge piping done, its kinda close to SRTC, I could probably do better though. Just need to set some time aside when my car can be parked and I can get all those parts off and powdercoated.

    Wow, nice pics man. I'd definitely need to hit the track once I'm down with suspension mods with my Kappa. We should go some time. Nice meeting you btw on Saturday.

    Yeah Ill probably go a little conservative when I get my tune. Theres quite a bit power already there after the GM stage 1. I think I need a driver upgrade before I start throwing huge HPs and TQs at it.

    Most definately need to hit the track, it would be awesome to get a bunch of deltas and kappas out there to see how they all stack up. I was the only cobalt, and 1 of 3 FWDs at the track last time.

    Yeah likewise, if youre gonna be at the meet on saturday Ill see you there
