Default A couple upgrades

Hey, everybody. It has been awhile since I have been posting on the forum, now that I'm finished with school that should all change. I have some money to play around with and will be doing some upgrades for my truck this next month.

I just want to say thanks to Matt at the new Moe's Performance for helping me in selecting my parts and giving me a bundled deal. From him I am ordering; comp cam 268, edge torque converter 3000 stall, auburn limited slip diff, 4.10's for front and rear diff, and traction bars.

A couple misc parts that I am also adding include the over sized 84mm TB from fastman and a 20% underdrive pulley from summit.

The comp cam 268 requires upgraded valve springs and pushrods which I am getting from wholesalemoparl.com.

I'll get some pictures of all the parts and hopefully a few of the install as well as dyno results when its all done. The place helping me with the install will do a before and after dyno.

The next step I need help with is deciding what to do for tires and wheels. Also I am still trying to figure out how much I want to lower it. I'd prefer to keep the staggered look and just do an all around 2inch drop, unfortunately no one makes a kit like that. Anyway, I'm open for any suggestions or opinions.

Thanks Ryan. Keep me posted after the install. I think you are going to be very impressed with the new mods.
