    Default Winter Build Plans - 2017/2018 Edition

    Whether we want to accept it or not, winter is almost upon us. What are everyone's plans for builds, upgrades, or repairs over the winter months?

    I'll start:

    '90 LX:
    - Pull the trans and send the torque converter out for a re-stall
    - Install Aeromotive 340 lph fuel pump w/ proM hanger - this will give me the option to turn up the nitrous
    - Replace door lock actuators, and maybe clean up/replace some trim pieces
    - Slowly acquire parts for my 427 build. By spring I'd like to have at least a rotating assembly pieced together.

    My goal for the 2018 season is to run 10.8x on my stock block combo w/ a 100 shot. Due to my torque converter being way too tight, I've struggled to get the car moving off the line. Running 11.40s with a soft 1.8x 60' tells me there's plenty of room to knock down my ET.

    '88 GT:
    - Pull the engine and trans
    - Pull interior
    - Determine how bad the rust situation is and begin repair (if it's worth fixing)

    - Change the oil
    - Detail the crap out of it. It needs some mild paint correction work
    - Occasionally sit in it and make race car noises

    Well, I was going to pull the motor/trans to prep for installing the new motor/trans. But then I lost my work space. So....maybe just build the new engine anyways.

    Hoping to finish up painting under hood, get the motor and trans in, and starting rewiring the entire car.
