This is the link
to the pics. This install didn't go as smoothly as planned but it worked out. Here's the details.
The old bushings I had were totally shot, and they took longer then planned to remove, airtools rock. The old parts looked like crap when I compared them to the Metco stuff, but i'm sure you all know that. I used 90 degree zerk fittings for the uppers since that made the greasing way easier. The ICM brackets didn't move at all after they were isntalled(there's this lip on the mounting area that makes rotating them back impossible), so welding them up was no problem since they were pretty solid.
First thing I noticed during the test drive was the way the car felt. It was very solid and made you feel the road alot more. I left the rear swaybar off, and I don't think i'll need it, it also went into the dumpster with the old RCAs. The car does not spin as much, so the engineering part of these ICMs is working. The car hooks like it did before I had the converter installed, that should give those who have had a higher stall converter installed a better idea of how good these ICMs work. It just feels strange, but a good strange. I will have to get to the track this coming weekend if they weather holds out to test. Best with the Pilot Sports are low 1.9s, so if I get into the 1.8s, hopefully 1.7s, i'll be very happy. Looks like more suspension tuning for me, but it's always fun to get the car to launch hard on street tires.
Well that's it from here. If the pics don't load up blame Yahoo, and I just uploaded them so it may take an hour or 2 for them to become available. These RCAs and ICMs kick major butt, and it's another mod that done to get me ready for the ECIRS race next month at Cecil County. Next up, 1.6 rockers/springs/pushrods/seals, maybe an electric waterpump if I have time. [img]smile.gif[/img]
