I drive her every where I can, but my time is limited. The weather is starting to change. She needs a good bath and wax then she will only come out on the nice days. It's going to be a long cold winter this year. :(

Glad to hear that you drive her when possible. Winter is always longer than you want...

Here is shot of the whole boat out by Daytona.
Normally the fuel controllers were set at 7,200 hp; but have had it set as high as 8,400 hp
Sure glad the owner was paying for the fuel...

Ha - It's not that hard. I only have about 20 dollars in my pocket right now...

One thing to remember is that life is a journey, not a destination. No matter what you do, if you take pride in it and do the best you can, happiness follows. I rate success in terms of family, faith and friends. Have had some luck in business but the best part of that has been able to meet new friends and some of us even get to work together. That's the coolest part. Anyway, glad you enjoy the build.

Hey B, that boat sounds really good too! I got a tournament this weekend and need a boat with a good holeshot. Could I borrow that?

Funny enough, before I even got to the next post, I was thinking the same thing....

That is one heck of a statement and belief. Now if only more people had the same mindset.

No problem. One minor thing is that it burns approx. 720 gallons/hr of JP4/5/8 at speed.

Nothing too crazy.

- NRE and Xtreme Innovations are going back and forth to get the rear upper (narrowed) coilover mounts just right for optimal fitment.

- Working on re-routing the A/C lines and installing the LineLoc.

- As soon as the intake comes in () a hard accelerator pedal linkage will be made from stainless. Can't use fly-by-wire or cable with high boost turbos - the boost can override the butterflies and that can be pretty hairy . Once this is done, we can send all of the components out for their respective ceramic coatings.

- Adding the battery cutoff per NHRA rules and some parachute release stuff. The ordinary things to stay safe and legal.

- I think I am going to send the ACS splitter and Heritage grille out there now too. I was originally going to wait for it to come back here, but I would rather have it hit the streets out there with the final front end pieces. (Oh well, just add it to the shipping costs. )

- The one thing we may test on the dyno is how much restriction the mufflers add. If it is bad then we will either add cutouts or delete the mufflers.

Awesome stuff. Wouldn't cutouts keep with the sleeper effect? Then open them up when you need better flow?

Most likely, but the one thing to remember is that a TT motor is MUCH quieter than a stock one [until you really get on it] since the turbos absorb a huge amount of sound energy out of the exhaust.

Had already changed to 3" straight through Stainless Works offroad muffler... Stock just didn't have the right sound for the SST.

I don't really think the stock mufflers have the right sound for any Camaro.

When can we expect some video?

Ha, ha. You're not that far away. I bet there is a red Camaro and a blue Chevelle that have a little fuel to "borrow"...
