Is that a timing light flashing or a spark plug wire arching? Look above the carb in the corner where the hood hinge.

It was the timing light flashing I had it on the radiator core support.

Finished the front brake install after weighing everything I ended up with a 22.5 lb loss per wheel and we lost 14 lbs total going to the carbon fiber drive shaft. I think the Dirty Bird is going to like the loss in rotating mass.

You might need some Titanium rods and a flow bench!  LMAO on floor

I honestly don't get it.

I'm sweating, my heart is racing, my clutch foot is twichin', and my right arm punched the computer screen doing an involentary 2-3 shift while reading all that.

I had the SSBC kit on there and they worked great but was looking to loose some rotating mass
