Yeah I bought the smoothflow 2.8 gm style hub

I bought a security bit set with the right bit and I still can't get it off... Two of the bolts are striped from previous owner or whatever.... Other two are iffy but look fine. This bit doesn't get a real good grip on it

Badically I'm going to take the blower off and weld some bolts on top of those ones and get them out that way.

Usually easier than drilling and tapping I hate doing that

put pulley on today.

was a huge pita because i broke off a allen head wrench in one of the bolts holding down the s/c. i didnt think i put them on very tight before, but i used the ball side of a allen wrench and sure as **** pop broke off.

no drill bit known to man would get into that bitch

cobalt, carbide, titanium nothing.

finally got that bolt out with one of those old gator grip sockets lol.

instead of welding on a bolt to the wasted pulley bolts i just used a grinder to make a notch then hit it a few times with a punch worked like a charm.

those security bolts had every thread covered in loctite lol....

i put a tiny drip of blue loctite on the bolts.... tiny...

i used a pair of vice grips with a rag around them to hold pulley still while i tightened bolts

Car definitely runs stronger with 2.8 compared to 3.06

It's really rainy out but I was seeing 17.5-18psi at upper rpms

One thing I noticed is that with the 3.06 pulley i saw 17deg advance at upper rpms wot.

I tried to look and I think I saw 14 in 2nd upper rpms

I can't find a KR pid that works it should be fine

The car wasn't fully warmed up and it was about 40f outside might have something to do with it

Yeah they can work on bolts that aren't super tight.

The other sockets work better tho I just didn't have the perfect size couldn't find it

The 1000iq move was to use the grinder to notch it and hit with punch to get them loose. Worked great

They covered the entire bolt with blue loctite

Installed strut tower bar

I didn't realize until after I bought it that the shock towers are attached to the firewall... Oh well

Maybe a bit less body roll I guess hard to tell lmao. Looks super sweet though
