I'm still in awe at the amount of tuning, I'm assuming, this car will need. I remember reading 3 computers on board, I think. (?)

Awesome car B!

Speedster,
Note, I would like to be in the line requesting a "ride of terror." I hope that puts me on dry land.

BTW, dropped my baby off this morning...

Some interim updates.

Fuel System:
Pic 1: The SST fuel lines. Two complete fuel systems each has a -10 feed, and a -8 return. One vent tube for each system.
Pic 2: Running the lines up for the passenger side bulkhead (primary 8 injectors) to the engine compartment
Pic 3: Running the lines up for the drivers side bulkhead (secondary 8 injectors) to the engine compartment

I do not claim to be an expert in any way, but in that last pic... aren't the fuel lines a little close to that tire?

They are the highest quality Braided Stainless Steel....and we are going to add some shielding.

No worries...

Off Topic - Here is a pic one my friends just sent referring to the SST and the Firebird...lol

More interim stuff:

Rear Suspension...

Pic 1: Rear subframe, rear view. Pfadt solid subframe bushings. Custom drag coilovers. Spohn Lower control arms with Delrin Bushings.

Pic 2: Rear subframe, front view. Pfadt solid subframe bushings, Spohn tubular rear toe links and trailing arms with Del-Sphere bushings. Was really hoping BMR or Spohn had the upper control arms by now, but they are not available quite yet, but Brandon at IPS FedEx'd overnight some Pfadt upper control arm bushings (not yet installed in this pic) that have since been installed - Thanks Brandon !

Pic 3: Lower Control Arm - JUST clears the 18" max offset rim, but is too close for comfort so we are going to notch in the control arm and install a shorter Grade 8 bolt.

I think that happens when your tire is half the size of the car!

Emma has a good eye catching the fuel line location, but if (when) you shred a tire it's gonna find your fuel lines no matter where you put them

Yes, that and the intake were the culprits. We have an intake solution and I have been told the diff WILL be done "shortly".

They are BSS and teflon so even exposed they are almost impossible to compromise...these particular ones are as tough as hard line. These HD lines were chosen since they are going to have 85+ psi in them quite regularly.
Yeah? Who's making us wait in line in the ocean???

We'll give you a noodle to use with your vest...

... I think Cyn nailed it when she said, "Coal, meet Kettle" LOL
Yeah, Cyn gets it. You on the other hand - do they make rigs that float ?

This is probably going to be a stupid question but, how much power do you expect once she is all running and on the dyno?

We're in the preliminary validation phase, still got a few bugs to work out

I am always cautiously optimistic in doing this. It really comes down to how high we decide to run the boost. Also, this is first and foremost a 100% streetable car, so I ruled out things like a .700"+ cam and 88mm+ turbos which we already have dyno runs over 2,000 hp so it will definitely be lower than that. The engine can take whatever we decide to throw at it. I know that is not a direct answer, but it will be well above 1,000 hp.

It is a high end DTS Powermark Dyno and on a few different builds (Big Twin Turbo Engines) we hit the maximum capacity of the unit at just over 2,200 hp.

I can see now why the rear diff could be the "unicorn" based on that hp estimate. This car will be amazing!
