Those ugly tubs serve a purpose directing airflow under the car. I must admit that I'll get rid of them eventually for the weight reduction but at least they don't hinder performance.

Nice gains, love how that cam revs.

For your overlays try and use where the hp and tq cross at (5,250rpm) to line them up. Your earlier pulls are moved forward about 500rpm.

Do you have a plan for the 8847's downpipe? I'm pretty sure you need 4" and that's going to be a bitch to snake to the exhaust.

Would love to see it when it's done.

It would look retarded and give up the benefit of a smaller diameter rim being able to have more sidewall. If you're after a lower ratio re-gear and utilize the 18" rim for what it's worth.

Nice run.... with the tubing going in the car for the intercooler might as well ditch the passenger seat and shorten them up.

BMR had revised one of their bushings a couple of years ago as well, it was a hair too small. The one that goes in the rear hub/spindle. Think it's the LCA.

It's for cathedral port heads (LS1, LS6, LS2). The height is great but it's a poor design of sticking the hi-ram upper on top of a dual quad dual plane intake meant for street-rods, not power.

Don't even try and run in the right lane. It's a waste of time unless you have an AWD.

Are those values for combined runner length? 10" for the shortest seems quite long.

Wonder if this explains the dip always present at around 3,000rpm.
