That and smaller brakes so you can get some good racing slicks on the back. Don't forget to order a line lock kit, you will need it to heat up the drag radials. The 555s are just a slippery as the stock tires when they are cold.

went by Blu808 last night. im painting my calipers red. also got to hear how my car sounds with open headers......DAMN!! freakin loud. cant wait to try it out on the freeway under boost . rotors went on last night as well.....now if only my brake lines would arrive!

found out my gauge pod will ship tomorrow as well as the carbon fiber fenders i ordered. everything should be here next week.

We decided to just replace my broken axel with another stock one for now. I'm going to get my 1400hp axels ordered in the next week or so, most likely from DSS.

Only 800,
I would of thought you was setting that car up for alot of drag strip time with the cage and that kind of power. Noway you will ever get 2/3 of that power out on the street. I do think its cool to hear about though, which is why I will continue to follow your build to see where it goes.

Yeah, I have to agree with this statement. I am bone stock and I rarely - if EVER - use all 426 horses on the street.

Josh, why are you getting a cage put in if you aren't going to drag race it? I've never heard of that being a requirement for AutoX, though I'm definitely not an AutoX expert.
