I think speedster understood the humor with which my self-depricating comment was intended.

I love the look of the MPD1 spoiler on my car and two friends of mine on FB ordered it for their cars after seeing pics of mine.

Thanks, but I made my comment in jest. We all know speedster's car is light years beyond mine (and almost every other car in these forums). I was just being silly.

Don't get me wrong. I love my car and I'm having a blast modding it. But, speedster is in a different league and that is cool.

You know that is the funny thing about the MOD World, It has something for everyone. From the Person who just wants the Axle back and CAI, ( Like we all wanted, WELL AT FIRST) to people like Bruce and SST who are over the top and all those in the middle from 368 rwhp to ?????( UMMM Bruce ) RWHP.

The great thing is we have threads like this and EM's. Pq's, Russ's, Gtahavit's, Orange Krate's, Tag's, Brandi's, RJT's to name only a very few who are going from mild to wild, it gives everyone a chance to learn new and wonderful things.

As long as you're kissing Russ...we're good.

Hope everyone had a great day today. We had some massive storms here in FLA today. Torrential downpours and 70 mph winds... None of that at C5Fest...

Plus all the people that just show up. We had a bunch of those last year too. Hope the weather in PHX is good. I am sure it will be.

You are welcome! Glad all is okay. (You know we're jacking the SST Thread , the holiest of holy builds) Now someone should put a car with a booger on the front in here.

I laugh daily with the "I'm postin' pics in _____'s thread!"

edit: and I caught Mr. C's comment as well before it disappeared

So here is a neat little SST dyno video for you.

The pulls in this video are all back-to-back done in the wee hours of the morning. Heck we even blew the intercooler off at the 4:40 mark !! ...and the cabinet door flew open at 3:25...ha, ha.

Made 1450 HP at 28 psi. We felt it would be smart to cut the pull at 6,000 - I was a little nervous about blowing the 4 bolt heads off before C5FestII. Will put on the 6 bolt heads after we put in the electronic controller but that won't be until after the fest since the intake base has to be modified. Tom had asked me a long time ago, but I dragged my feet. A little busy at the office.

I will tell you - I am very happy with the results so far. The amount of R&D we did on this whole project has been really cool. Learned a ton. Still think we will hit the goal of full streetability and 20+ mpg too...

Edit: I forgot one other little detail. You will note that even though it was setup on the dyno so that the piping would work, the ATW intercooler didn't actually have any water going through it on these pulls. Happy April Fool's day...

Also, if you watch after the credits, there is a 10 second clip that the SST does actually exist...lol

So without further ado:
