Nice coilovers ! I was looking to get the same ones, but couldn't find them in that price range. My GC plates has the side to side like yours for camber, but it also has front to back adjustment, which is for caster.

When I just bought all my new suspension pieces, I chose not to buy the M3 Front Strut Mounts, as they produce positive caster (sliding the wheels forward a bit).

The benefit to this is better high speed stability, but the down side is a wider turning radius.

I thought the turning radius was more important so I stuck with the 325 mounts.

Any stock car has positive front caster, that's just part of the design. The M3 strut mounts shift the top of the strut back, increasing the caster a bit, but move the front wheels back slightly as well. And the part about high speed stabilty is right, but the turning radius is unaffected, it's limited by the steering rack, or tire width/wheel offset.

My car died on the highway again, luckily I was able to limp home, but what was interesting were the conditions I was in. 5500rpm at 160km/h in 4th (roughly anyway), going up hill when the car just suddenly lost all power over 2500rpm; it felt completely flat on the revs. So when i got home i did some research and came to the conclusion that my car probably starved from fuel. Knowing the check valve is gone in my stock pump I figured I would change the pump out and see if this solves my problems. I opted to buy the Walbro 255LPH pump, overkill for my car but for $89 USD why not...
Installation required modification of my fuel pump housing but everything fit in snugly and the pump is very quiet too.

results?

WELL I DIDN"T THINK A FUEL PUMP COULD DO SO MUCH!!

My car idles absolutely perfectly now, and the revs are smooth as butter throughout the rpm range. Driving I notice no hesitation AT ALL, and no bogging down off the line when engaging 1st gear. Will take it out on the highway tonight but I can already feel a huge difference. Once i lean off the mixture a bit she'll become even more of a beast than i've seen her

Instructions i followed to change the pump are here:

Here are some quick snaps. Dont usually like to show the car in an unfinished condition hence the lack of pics. This will be the last pic shown before she goes in for paint. She's missing an assortment of accessories in these pics such as a new grill, ///M moldings, rims, new emblems, etc etc etc as I plan on installing all of that after it comes back from paint. I plan on actually handing the car over to paint in as many parts as I can and them re-assembling the car myself (i'm a control freak, what can i say! )

Would have taken better pics, but did my best with what little time i had yesterday on my camera phone

Thanks! The hummer is actually my fathers, but I think I take it out more than he does. It was more fun when diesel was 59cents to the litre than what it is now; it's almost 1:1 with gasoline!

Soon to be (but in black)...
