    Would an out of balance driveshaft cause knock?

    1/2" wheel spacers. anything good???

    I found some wheels I reallly want to run on the back ... 15x9 and the only options are 4" or 5" BS. I want to tuck a 275/60, maybe even a 295/55 drag radial. I am thinking the only way to do this is with a 5" BS and a 1/2" spacer. I don't know much about spacers, but like i said, i really...

    My new gn1 aluminum heads have some damage. Need advice

    JUST got them. Opened the first box and this was staring me in the face. I know how much a pain in the ass it is for our headers to seal. I was planning on having my headers machined perfectly flat and running no gasket. I think this will leak. Probably even with any gasket. I need...
