2014 has started off great. I ordered parts on Tuesday 12/31 and low and behold, I had a package at my door yesterday.

Only opened one for the time being to take a picture.

Received my Fed Ex tracking from Precision and the wastegates are on the truck for delivery today. Those were purchased yesterday. Let's hope this good luck continues. 2013 sucked for luck.

I got a few more parts on Saturday. I received my electric cutout back that was sent it for warranty work.

I also received the wastegates the day after I ordered them.

Those vikings will work great once you have them set up! Not sure if you have someone helping with the suspension but if you start with them where viking suggest its a great starting point.

I haven't talked to anybody yet. I was planning to discuss it with Eric at MWC when it gets closer to Spring and time for the race track. I will take a look at their instructions and see what they have. I would be interested in what you have yours set at, either in here or PM.

I will also be waiting for the A-arms and brakes before installing them. That way I can do it all at once.

Not all of our builds are junkyard builds by any means. I was just wanting some solid information on the claim you are making, not just another internet comment about something you have no real knowledge on is all.

Came home yesterday and had another box sitting on the back porch. This time it was from Strange.

Looking forward to getting the A-arms from MWC. Then I can start throwing all of this stuff on.

Better put the order in for those when you order the rear shocks.

I talked to MWC about it for a while when ordering. They make the Pro Race kit and they also make a Sportsman (S-series) kit. MWC said the race kit will wear a little faster on the street and also not recommended for heavy traffic. I am still going to street drive my car a fair amount, but it is rarely in heavy traffic. Where there is heavy traffic, I don't get too aggressive anyhow with the skinny's up front. So I figured I would spend the extra ~$100, and save the 5.5lbs and go with the pro kit.

The Pro Kit weighs 23.7lbs.
The Sportsmans Kit weighs 29.1lbs.
The S-Series Solid Rotor weighs 10 pounds; the Pro Race Slotted Rotor weighs 7.3 pounds.

Its better to save every bit of unsprung weight that you can. It makes a big difference.
Nice thread by the way. Love the build.

Sorry for the mess also, im still learning the form.

MAP Sensor:
I honestly don't know what sensor is currently in the car. It is a 3-bar sensor. During my spending spree, I ordered what I thought was a "Delphi / GM 3 Bar Style Map Sensor - 12223861 - 16040749 (US Made)" from LSXTune (website). When going to install the sensor (about 9 months after I bought it), it turned out it wasn't the sensor listed above. I had done a search and it came up as a 3-bar sensor so I thought let's use it. I am not sure what it is but I am guessing some China knockoff piece of ****.
I couldn't find the GM map sensor locally for a half decent price so I bought the cheapest 3 bar autometer boost gauge, 100 bucks or so. I wonder if its the same part number

Agreed. I wish I would have chosen a lot of other lightweight parts when I ordered other stuff.

Thanks for the good words.

I'm not following you here. Started with a MAP sensor and ended with a boost gauge?

I didn't want to take shortcuts with the MAP sensor and thought spending a bit more and getting an authentic one would be the right approach. Well, that backfired on me. The LSXtune jackass has not replied back to my email either. Crook!

Hopefully you didn't get the cheap junk I got.

Spent a little time Friday night putting some parts on. Reinstalled the electric cutout. Also swapped the Chinese wastegates out for the new Precision PW39's. They look much nicer.

The upper and lower A-arms are supposed to arrive sometime next week from Midwest Chassis. Hopefully start swapping that stuff out in the next couple weeks.

Yes, I got them at Race Part Solutions. You can get them on EBay as well. The straight connectors on eBay are okay but the 90s are junk.

We ran out of time at the dyno session so it is tuned extremely conservative. I haven't had a chance to look at the file yet. I believe it is something around 13 degrees.
