Yes front aswell air ride tech. system
Trying to button up body work now and when body comes off frame suspension will all come together. nice to be getting closer finally, so many lil details in this car ive change and modified i call it cleaning up the ugly, lol
Like flipped the bumpers made new valance pans, smoothed alot aswell shaved the locks left the handles smoothed all the side trim and trunk, made a tilt front end and top of the hood also tilts side ways, custom built inner fender wells and bottom side of hood.

Ive always wante a smooth subtle custom and this car certainly has been a fun candidate just sooooo time consuming.
Thanks guys

Nice looking motor.

What solid roller lifters are you using?

My old 406 had the oil restricters in and now it is said the oil restrictions are not recommended any more. I think this is due to the new HIPPO solid roller lifters to make sure they get good oil flow.

Theres plenty of pros and cons to them but im running a 15% over melling select pump it has a good bit of pressure and engine builder recomemended them with this solid roller.
Lifters are PBM's rollers with a comp cams rev kit!

PBM's. I have never heard of them but I checked out their site. Wow they are really cheap like $350 or less for a standard set. Look to have all the features they should have with HIPPO.

Sorry my first thought was PBM = Paul Blart Mallcop.... Laughing
