Russ, you have one of the baddest cars hands down. A lot of people have similar mods to yours but they just sit in the garage. Yours is a true street machine.

Thanks Pete. Now we just need to figure out some kind of custom engine covers for the Whipple!

Very nice. I have done many engine mods now its time for wheels and tires my stock rears are bald. I took mine to the track and ran an 11.7 with the traction control on and stock tires.
I'm glad to see 315's fit. Do they rub at all?

Thanks guys. I too waited to buy wheels until my tires were getting low on tread. The 315s fit perfect, and even with a 1" drop there's no rubbing at all.

Excellent numbers and build !!

Great to see. Looks like you are doing it right. And yeah, don't go any higher without at least a fuel system upgrade. A few members have already broken ring lands because of that. :(

Do you like the ADM boost gauge? Is it easy to glance at while driving around? Also, does it have any kind of memory for max PSI or a 30 second of playback or something? Just wondering. Was trying to get viewpoint from a client like you. Thinking about one for the SST. Thanks.

I like the gauge a lot. It's easy to read and looks very clean. It's pretty easy to look down at, but if you're in boost it's hard to stare at anything but what's in front of you!

The gauge changes very quickly, but there's really no memory or playback...at least not from what I see. There are no buttons of any kind. During our dyno we had someone in the car just to watch the gauge.
