Yep - intent is to keep the car at this same power level, while working to cool water and oil temps as much as possible, and reducing weight.That would be killer weight and definitely beneficial on tires, brakes and other wear. I applaud your idea of shifting a bit lower down ( mine goes to 7800 but I set redline at 7700 ) but I am pretty confident you could at least go to 7200 without any reliability issues. I am sure others will chime in on that, but it appears your mindset is conservative , so that was where I listed my suggestion.
Gotta ask is KU Keeper for Kentucky University, Kansas University , or something else. We do tend to be a nosy bunch, ha!?
Definitely felt great to have the car on-track again. The few events I did with it last year never felt like I was driving a 'complete' car... no gauges, a 'roughed-in' alignment that ended up being not very good, and constantly babying the car due to uncertainty. This event, it actually felt like I was driving a complete car - drove straight, working gauges and shift light, brakes held up amazingly.Had to be a great feeling just to get it on he track. After my coyote/roadrunner swap in my sn95 my spring rates were way out of wack as well. Honestly im still trying to find a good set up. Fyi, you probably took 150 lbs plus blower weight off the front end with that swap if you were coming from a iron block 2v. Sounds like not a bad shake down weekend though. What suspension do you have on there?
Eww, good thing you did back off some, huh.Thanks-didn’t realize it was free when you bought parts from them. Tried calling today, got put on hold for nearly 20 min before I hung up. Will install the other springs I have this weekend, and see what shock adjustments feel like on local roads.
Also-did an underbody inspection, and turns out the front subframe was working overtime to protect the engine....

Absolutely - another 1/2" or so, and the oil pan drain plug would have started to file away... the car was fine last year at Waterford and Gingerman, it was never driven fast at Grattan (did Grattan, but was in pouring rain)... goes to show how much more elevation change there is at Grattan!Eww, good thing you did back off some, huh.
