Man that thing looks high. I am thinking about the ZZP coilovers and going away from AGX but the ride quality is so nice.

Also adds to the "Grandpa Car" joke look?

If you go with coilovers, either brand, I'm sure you'll love it. The adjustment options are fun to have, as well.

Didn't know you had done the holden intake swap on your car.....

Ya, it looks pretty cool (might do a clear lid on it later on, because inside looks cooler than a flat panel). I'd guess the performance may or may not be significantly different than the other 2 good options for turbo: L26 w/ HV insert, or F-body swap, but it looks very cool and I love the hi-ram profile of the lower runners.
I think I posted here or on 3800pro regarding the swap, but don't think I've done a stand-alone part description, since it's not common enough.
Figured the coilover swap was something that a bunch more people would like to see, even though it's fairly straight forward. Gonna hit a mountain cruise (Blue Ridge Road Rally) tomorrow, and will try to get footage.

We have Ben's old car at my house and have been reworking it, I even went as far as a custom radiator so the return was on the right side........

I am tweaking a few other things and should be able to utilize a normal alt, just using hard lines for some tight clearances. Won't go bigger than the 66 though...

One of my earlier build videos last year (part 2 maybe?) showed when I was NPT tapping the heater core outlets to get secure connections there and run heater hoses thru the bracket and to the water pump. I probably have more footage/pics if you want to have a separate topic for that. I opted for keeping the Northstar, only because adapting wasn't too hard with my old Brian Teel plates, and I was already going custom with spacers to fit the ZZP Gen1 fuel rails underneath.
Suspension is fun, though. Honestly, the Z06 guy was pretty impressed with how I was going through the Blue Ridge curves at speed without getting hairy or barking tires. The 255 Nittos held decent as I stayed in 2nd or 3rd most of the trip, with the coilovers, strut braces, and Dorman trailing arms putting in the core work so my stock-size drilled/slotted rotors didn't have to get worked hard... unlike an un-named newer import who definitely roasted his brakes in the final downhill section, and screeched bad as he left the meeting spot later.
