Without a doubt!

Any engine work I get done will undoubtably be by Tracy, my only hope is that it's sooner than later lol.

It was awesome man, I got there, formal introductions and than he starts showing me around... When we got to your car, it was almost as if he was speaking of his first child...not sure if that makes sense, let me give an example..."so this is my 9second car, this is my 8 second car, AND THIS IS GRETCHEN!!!" The excitement in his voice, the pride, it really was awesome! Thats what I mean by first kid. You have a special car, and alot of it is due to Tracy's passion and you sacrificing your beautiful car to get it right...but I am telling you, ITS RIGHT!!! lol

Yeah, I'm afraid I'm going to have to fight him for it when I go back down there.

I think he's enjoyed the project, especially learning about all the DI gotchas now before GM starts producing V8 versions. I know a lot of people are going to benefit from what he learned and I'M GOING TO HAVE AN AWESOME BUILD to have fun with.
