Bought 4 fox shocks w/ res., T28 with intake, header, BOV, CB Max 5 oil pump and lines, Weber 40 prepped for turbo, fuel reg and pump, misc lines and such.

As an afterthought purchased some grey tweed front door panels and hardware.

Going to need to finally take the baja to Bugzyla and have some fab work done. I have done all I can.

Pulled the motor and tore it apart, no spun bearings but #1 rod bearing looks suspicious, has a strange wear pattern on it. Gonna have the crank resurfaced, replace all the bearings, get a new set of 87mm pistons & liners, clean up the heads, and hopefully have it back together by the 12th for the run

Finally got my Torsions and plates fron the Latest Rage.
Splines are a touch tighter then SAW....but SAW does a better manicure on there plates.
Dove right in and notch to 16* after trimming the spring plate stops.
Mocked it up with my beefed stock arms. SWEET
Will clean up there sharp edges tomorrow and twist a degree and some change into a preload leaving about 8* on top for recommended max twist.
Still impress with the better range on the 24 inch torsions @ 29mm instead of the 21 @ 28
