I actually saw and touched your car this morning when I stopped by the shop to drop off my car. I must say your turbo set up is top notch and clean!

You will be very happy with the final product!

Well, I'm going home empty handed. Tracy and the crew pulled an all-nighter but ran into an exhaust leak. Also, their Dyno guy left them hanging and never came by to wire it up. But everything on the car looked great, fits like a glove. Should be running in the next few days and then he'll ship it back.

Tracy picked me up, brought me to the shop, showed me my car as well as the other builds they have going. He also gave me a catch can 101 lesson. RX treated me to lunch, let me drive a supercharged Caddy, and brought me back to the airport.

I took a few pics around the shop with my ipad:

even though you didn't get to pick up your car it still sounds like a sweet time.

It was. It was great talking with Tracy in person. I must have sent him hundreds of PMs in the past. Great guy! Irene was very nice too and a gear head.

OMG! That thing is planted, you hit the gas and it goes. I almost bought one before the Camaro. I might have to convince the fiancé we need a "family" car

Very nice and sucks you weren't able to pick up your car. But on a side not damn that roots looks super tall. No way it's coming close to fitting under a stock hood

Yea, it won't fit under a stock hood. They're modifying a ZL1 hood so it'll peak out a little bit from the top. Should look pretty mean when its done.
