Pssh that's just a bunch of piping all bent up. I think an apprentice was using it to learn how to bend pipe and threw it aside.

Russ what pulley are you running on your Whipple? I was thinking about doing a pulley swap but can't make up my mind.

Don't you have traction issues already Nick?

Russ, do you have a specific goal you're shooting for with your car?

Right now I have the 3.75, and ended up at 9.3 max boost. If you pulley any higher I'm afraid you'll start going lean at higher RPMs.

LOL...my original goal was a catback exhaust!

With the blower I was looking at 600RWHP, and now that I'm there I'd like a little more for the track. I'm going with NOS so I'm not running that much power all the time.

Yes but only when I jab it from a stop. I've learned to ease into the throttle.

I'm using the stock pulley. Think it's 4.125" if I remember right. Was thinking of going with a 4".

I'll have to check. I'm only considering the pulley swap since I'm having long tubes installed. I know they'll lower my boost.

Could I bug you to possibly make me one of those dern cool sigs you have a knack for creating?

Thanks!

So I got my tires mounted on the Forgestars last week, but my existing locks wouldn't fit. Tony was cool enough to give me an old set he had so I could put them on. Thanks bro!

I decided to run around on them a couple of days. Here are some quick pics I took this morning on my iPhone.

I think it's lack of Camaro not caffene.

...and yes this L99 is not enough for Mr. Danger

The wheels look great... Don't worry you won't wear them out before C5 Fest...you can run them at least til we hit the track...
