The kid's reaction to hearing/feeling a full boost turbo whoosh for the first time => lol

thanks for using Pedders by the way!

That one is easy, you make great stuff.

Once you get past 50 on the water, it's all fast...I have hit the water at 70-80 mph waterskiing and it really hurts. Yes, there are scars...


Mike - Here is a pic from the fire suppression install on the Firebird and it's the same on the SST Camaro:

That has to be one of the best builds going on right now. Alot of people could just add body parts etc. But the fabrication and skill level on this one is second to none. Like a said in a previous post. Take notes people.

Thank You for the vote of confidence guys. Things are progressing smoothly. The billet snout(s) for the intake have been CNC'c and the redo of the piping to change it from an air-to-air over to an air-to-water intercooler has been fabbed too.

Sorry I haven't posted much stuff lately, I have been on vacation most of July and after the first week or two kind of dropped off the radar. (OK, so I had to sneak on once every couple of days just to see what's happening ...)

One of the biggest things I am waiting for is a bullet proof differential. A few of the vendors on here have been promising one and I cannot even road test this car without one. Once a bulletproof diff is truly available, then it won't be long between the time that is installed and the time we start posting engine dyno and road test videos.

I think I'm more excited about seeing/hearing your car on the dyno and on the road than I am about my Maggie install this month! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!

Right now this is my bucket list:

#1: get a ride is speedster's car!
#2: see #1

Yeah K, we can definitely do that one. When it gets back here, stop by the office and we can tear down US1... I can't wait to get to SpeedWorld and PBI/Moroso too. In the meantime, I gotta hit you up and go for a ride in your beast. Man, I'm Jones'n for a ride in a modded Camaro again.

Thanks. But you KNOW we need video(s) of your machine. I can't wait to hear your blower whine and the sound through that exhaust combo. Should really wake the neighbors.

Sorry Mike. We had a couple of "tricks" we had to perform. In changing the intercooler setup from air-to-air to air-to-water, we needed more clearance between the radiator and the engine so we had to move the radiator cowl forward about 4 inches and keep it looking factory stock...

Alright everyone, I need your input. One our great and illustrious moderators, Dragoneye (Thank You ), took a pic I had of a first gen setup similar to the SST and photoshopped it a few different ways. These are the last two and I am trying to see which combo of polish/ceramic coat/powder coat you think looks best (or any ideas you may have). Thanks for any feedback.

I'm biased to them all....so I'll be listening.

EDIT: The main difference between to the two is in the turbo exhaust-side housing and collector.

Sorry, it's kind of an eye test. Basically the difference in these last two pics is in the collector/turbo mount/exhaust housing area. In the upper pic they are Black Extreme Heat Ceramic coated and in the bottom they are coated with Jet-Hot Sterling.

There were other pics with almost all black or all polished (headers, pulleys, valve covers, etc) but there wasn't much contrast so it looked like a "blob", but like I said we are open to any suggestions. There are some earlier pics that I could post, but I am at home on the wifey's computer and don't have them readily available...

The black really contrasts and looks better imho. That look is SOOOOO clean. Can't wait to see the finished product.

if it is a high gloss black , i waould think that would look great especially if you could get close to color of valve covers...a flat black could be a little dull for such a beast...its SCREAMING ..LOOK AT ME.. i usually go for dressing up engines with powdercoat or endochrome..i have jet hot headers on my 67 chevelle , 4yrs and look as good as new..polished..now would there be any heat differences from i style to another or same . this is omly cosmetic..finally new posts and i thought i was going to see some more highlights..lol...i know the feeling though, as much time and $$ you want to explore every possible option ..but whatever you do , i,m sure everyone is going to be in awe
