We’ve turned the hustle knob up to 11 to get Project Thunderbolt on the road before the next ice age. First on this episode’s task list are the suspension’s rear control arms, which needed a thorough restoration and some stiffer bushings to help reign in our newfound LS horsepower.
We installed the refreshed rear control arms and the remaining driveline components, then plumbed the brake and fuel lines. Then it was time for the job that practically every car guy dreads: wiring. More specifically, wiring the LS3 engine and then adapting the engine to our Miata’s electrical system. Thankfully, Chevrolet Performance and Summit Racing made that job as easy as possible.
The right parts make all the difference in the world.
Thanks for all the, I am trying to think of the right word, but I’ll just use entertainment. This is an amazing project, and you being so young, what an accomplishment!!!!! I’m still watching all the video’s. I wish you much continued success. Thanks, Larry
