So, since I last updated my profile several years ago, the car has gone through many changes.
First, I had another motor built for it, and I didn't pull any... Show more punches this time.
High compression forged pistons, forged rods, MLS head gaskets, ARP bolts throughout, ported 3500 LX9 heads with Manley stainless valves and titanium retainers, and a healthier cam. Static compression is about 10.85:1; with a dynamic compression ratio of 8.5:1 it runs well on pump gas.
Oh, and the 4-speed automatic is gone; replaced with a Quaife-LSD fortified 6-speed manual.
Suspension is still KYB AGX dampers with H&R Sport springs, oversized anti-roll bars and poly bushings throughout.
Braking is an area I'm particularly smitten with, and as such I probably have the only Alero in the world with a custom AP Racing front brake setup. 4-piston fixed calipers with stainless pistons and 2-piece AP Racing J-hook rotors.
Everything still fits under 17x8" ASA GT5 wheels (just barely) with Michelin Pilot Super Sports.
