Soo just a few pages ago I posted that I dont need a custom tune yet. But I do need a new turbo. Was decided on a BNR St.1 until Corksport released a direct replacement for the Speed's.

Anyone know where the deal's on AP v3's are?

I see now, the BFG AT KO [HTML_REMOVED] the BFG AT KO2.

I have the KO, not the KO2. I do run the E range version which is something like 10 ply.

KO2s are just an updated KO. New sholder lugs and new price. Both come in C,D and E rating. AFAIK BFG is only making KO2s now, stock of KOs is still available. They are a very popular tire but there are better tires for a comparable price. The Cooper Discoverer A/T3, GT Radial AT, Hercules TerraTrac R/S, General Grabber AT2.

I would only put a D or E rated tire on a light truck or SUV that is taken off paved roads. I have seen plenty of trucks with flats running a C rated tire.

I've been running the shittiest Firestone c rated tires for all my off road trips and never once flatted one. I like the c's lighter weight. Those cooper at3s sound like a good tire, good thing I got a couple months to figure out what I want.

They have sales on sporadically directly from Cobb if you're willing to wait (4 of July last year I think). You might get lucky and find someone selling one on Craigslist, just be sure they've unmarried it from their car :lol:

So, with header, best intake would be Edelbrock with dual two barrels or one four barrel……….

I think I'd start with upgrading the bungy cord holding the battery in place.

Sweet that could work out for the my sloow ass replacement time frame. More or less want to wait and see if anything else decides to crap out.

No idea how Kumho does with the AT side but other than road noise, I completely enjoyed my Ecsta stx's.

front suspension bolted back in.

koni yellows, granatelli arms, QA1 k-memeber (96-04 style, with mounts for a ford modular motor), coilover sleeves. and camber plates. 96-04 spindles and brakes.

i still need the 4 control arm bolts, 1 strut bolt, and the bolts for the back of the k-member.

The KO2 is winter rated, the KO is just M/S. Also the C load rated KO2s are not available in a lot of common light truck sizes.

Some old KO's were winter rated. E load tire on a small truck is horrible.
