You may need to leave someone in charge of cracking the whip to the shop.

390 cfm is some great flow and should really put down some numbers with the TT setup.

Keep on Corey. You'll be surprised how fast C5Fest2 comes up and you HAVE to be there !!!

Proof it is actually under way...

Here is a picture of Brandi's butt on the ground... They pulled the rear subframe so they could get to the gas tank for the fuel pump installation. While it is off, they will be changing the subframe bushings (solid aluminum), the toe rods, the trailing arms, and the differential bushings (delrin). They will also be installing the DSS 1400 HP rated axles and a set of sways.

One each of the trailing arms and toe rods can be seen laying in the background.

This is one head for my build. Apparently they are flowing pretty well, as previously mentioned, just a smidgen under 390 CFM.

About all I can say is the intake valves are frigging huge. There is an upgraded set of dual springs as well to control the valves against the pressure of the forced intake flow. The cam is pretty large but is well suited for F/I build. I can't use the expression my builder uses, but it's hysterical when he says it... It will have a nice sound but not a lot of rump rump rump...I don't see the need for a lot of overlap causing the intake flow to be pushed right out the exhaust valves...

What a nice suspension setup! Those heads look awesome. With the twins there should be no need for a lot of cam lope... just feed it the air and fuel. This little Red Wagon is gonna fly!

Here is a picture or two of Brandi in the shop before they actually started the work.

The Camaro sitting next to her is having some repairs made...

Here are my actual axles, not a picture off the web... I've seen smaller shafts on some of the boats I've worked on... I think I mentioned before, there was a guy that has 1000 HP axles, and he saw these and wanted to take the set nad just have Corey order me a new set...

Corey flat told him and at least one other person they couldn't have them....

This is one of the humorous items to be found in Coreys shop... though he is serious about it....

It's the shop rules for customers and others....
