Had my Z up on the rack today installing the BC BR coilovers. Pretty easy, straight forward install, though it took us about 7 hours because we were just talking for the first hour and last hour, going at our leisure during, as well as a nice hour lunch break.

At any rate, I lifted the car up some and set the rebound to the 20th click towards full "Stiff".

A few pics of the new ride height...

The real question is, how fast does that yellow van go?

Louder, smoother, and more aggressive. My gf said the Rev9 didn't sound "natural" (she's not a car person). There was times where I dropped to a lower gear and the drone was deafening like a tin can and she would ask me to shift whereas with FI I drop it and she grabs the door handle

Hey, don't knock the van. That's my buddy's ride. It's got a cam'ed EFI 305 with some head work, short headers and a full custom dual exhaust. It has a 4-speed auto with overdrive and it will certainly scoot. There's not much weight there to move. And the shifter comes through the floor, so it looks like a Hurts 5-speed!

And yes, he as an LS motor with 6-speed manual ready to go in it.

I was genuinely curious what power plant it had in it based on the stance and tires. Looks like fun.

Thanks. I don't get that drone, but I do think a lazy downshift from 3 to 2 sounds pretty sloppy. Like it's too much exhaust for the engine. You get a resonated one?

Non-res bought it used, my test pipes are going to be resonated though.

I know, I know. I was just saying. It's an '87, and used to live its life as a Coca-Cola delivery van.

And I just realized I said "Hurts" shifter instead of Hurst. LOL

He's surprised quite a few un-expecting cars on the road with that thing. And man that exhaust, it sounds REALLY good.

Installed the Stance XR1 coilovers with Voodoo13 rear camber and toe arms. Dropped it 7/8" in the front and 1/2" in the rear. Got an alignment and ready for a mile pass soon. I only dropped it " in the rear because my radials still need to fit without rubbing
