295/55 is gonna be sweet man, that's what I've been considering as well. I'd posing be quicker on a 275/60 though...that's my biggest battle.

VFN traditional 2" cowl with clearance cut in the area the lid sits in. I think I read on here that VFN will build the hood with the clearance made into it if you ask them to.

I love that hood, I just can't do it because I need to keep my wipers to stay inspection legal. I wish we could get a Limited usage tag here in Va that wouldn't require me to get an inspection, then I could go wild.

I'm building an 8.8 with Moser flush mount housing ends with 10 bolt tubes. Axles will use "large 9" " set20 bearings that eliminate the c clips.

So the last two pieces of the build came in the TRZ anti roll bar and the LS1 rear brakes. Got everything at work moved around and put the rear on the table, going to clean the housing really well and get all the old bearings and races out.

It all came from eBay, the calipers rotors and pads, $26x something shipped. The pads are power stop and the rotors are brakemotive so it's some pretty decent stuff.
