Thank you SilverSlayer, you have one bad ass whip also my friend!

Nikos, you got that right, I'm a Philly/South Jerz guy all my life and thought the grass was greener on the other side, but it's really not. When your roots run deep at home and you leave all your friends and family, so I could surf more it just wasn't worth it in the long run. Owning properties in NJ and then renting in Cali just doesn't make sense financially. Plus I lost my best friend of 30+ years in July and I haven't been the same since. My better half works for the government and in her position they're hiring in multiple areas throughout NJ & PA, so we're hoping the transfer comes soon. Then you'll be able to see the whip in person!

Replaced most pulleys with RX Billet pulleys......Custom Blower Cam, Bosch 127lb Injectors, RX Monster Catch Can + more in the next 2 weeks.



Some shots of the OD Cog Drive before all secured up, good for 3.5lbs of boost, eliminates belt slip & sounds like a wicked mofo






Water Pump pulley


3.6 Pulley


Alternator pulley

My bad, that pic was before the fuel rail was shaved. Got the OD mounted up properly & then we set the belt on right and marked the fuel rail, then shaved it back about 3mm. I know I have pics of the process, just need to find them. I'm looking forward to hearing that cam also....as they say in poker, I'm all in now.

Hi John,
I wanted to extend a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I hope you are with your extended family as well. Please know I said a prayer for Tim today. I trust things are moving along---slowly I expect, but the loss of him will become somewhat easier with time.
You have been in our prayers all along.....Please lean on Him. He wants your burdens.

Take care and please keep in touch my friend....

Kurt and Kathy....ABL99....

Kurt, I cannot thank you enough for all the personal support you have given me over the past 4 months in dealing with my losses, another friend passed this week from cancer, so that's now 3 good men under the age of 50 lost. The friend this week, Mike had been battling cancer for almost 3 years, and at one point we thought he had it beat. Three months ago he had to do another surgery and round of chemo. He, as I also skateboard & surf as hobbies, so we held an online fundraiser for him on a skateboard forum and raised nearly $10,000 for him to help pay the bills, of which, I raised over $3,000 myself by donating some personal surfboards & skateboards......As I've told you in our previous conversations, I'm a firm believer in karma, but man I keep asking myself when will things turn around?!?!!!??? I guess I can consider myself lucky when the storm hit back east, and so many people lost everything, my properties escaped with minimal damage of a flooded garage at the shore house. Merry, Tim's girlfriend, rented the apartment next door, but unfortunately it's on the ground floor so she had 2' of water in there and lost everything, again! So after I got everything cleaned up at my place, I invited her to stay there to help ease the pressure of my friend & her landlord of getting the place fixed ASAP. I know Tim would be smiling down knowing she's taken care of.

I guess I should probably stick to car stuff here, but I wanted to publicly thank you again for ALWAYS being there for me in these past 4 months of turmoil, and I hope your and your family have a fantastic Thanksgiving! & Holiday season

Thanks Pierre, I'd wish you the same but it doesn't apply in this case right? There were no pilgrims & indians in Lebanon

And even though we've never met, both you & Kurt have always been here supporting my thread from day 1 and I'm thankful for that today!

So I hope EVERYONE has a healthy, happy holiday season!

It'll be a secret for now , but they're lightweight & 20" with Nitto NT05's on them. They're also similar to the Kilis since I dig that style. Glad we're getting this done now, because on 12/10 SSYNSTR goes to Cunningham Motorsports to get cammed, ID Injectors, RX Monster Catch Can & tuned by one of the best!

Bro, Like I always say, Happy wife, happy life......But thank God she has no idea what I do to the car! The other day we went for a ride and she says "what is that NOISE!!!" Meaning the whine of the OD Cog drive, and I try to explain it to no avail, so I said it's either listen to that sweet engine scream or this, and crank up the music on the hip hop channel (which she hates!!). I punched the pedal going down the street and the horror in her face was priceless

New shoes/rubber, cam, etc and there's another $10K into the car Where it goes I don't know? God only what I could've bought if I added everything up

Here's a pic of the new shoes TSW Nurburgring 20" powder coated Matte Black with Nitto NTO5's. 20x9.5 Fronts with 275/35 & 20x10.5 with 315/40 Rears. Those should provide enough traction to lock me up


Not my cars by the same set up except those have Invos.






Going on Tuesday Then my Kilis ship out to Pierre in Lebanon!

Thanks P, after much research on tires, the Nitto NT05 prove to be one of the best out there for traction with high HP. Believe me, they'll be put to the test!

The new TSW 20" Nurburgrings are back from the powder coater, and are getting mounted with the Nittos 275s & 315s now, for install tomorrow

Can't wait to feel the difference in stopping, more lightweight and acceleration!

Some wheel porn......

Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad you found my build useful, that's what it's all about, and if I can help others along the way it makes it worth while!!!
