excited to see your reaction when it is at home finally.

there was so much going on, trying to get it in transit and completed last minute.... is it done done. complete... or are there still high boost issues?

There's not enough protection available to defend against the dreaded love bug.

I heard the wipers are pulling double duty as flyswatters too. That's what all that special linkage was really for.

And we can cook on the intake.

.....I'm going to go now.

You guys are mental. Those ARE geese repellant nets... j/k

Here are a few more pics.

1) NRE TT Engine
2) Fuel Cells, Compressor & tank for high boost control, battery/remote
3) Data Logger. In this screen: engine rpm, driveshaft rpm, 93 octane fuel level, C16/C23 fuel level, intercooler coolant temp. It is continually logging voltages, boost, A/F and some other goodies.

Used for converter/transmission slippage. Also used with the boost controller for traction control at the track when compared to speedo/GPS readings.

Alright, last pics for now.

1) Body shot with hood - looks kinda stock
2) Front - never know it had turbos, a full A2W intercooler system and a Ron Davis radiator relocated 5 inches forward from stock...
3) Butt shot - stock tires. Will take one with the big M/T's later.
4) Stock looking interior.
