A manifold is now ready to ship to Rhino to work his magic on. Big thanks to Crude for offering up his spare parts.

Well I have only made a few pass's with it, but I'm close to having it dailed in now. Has matched fastest 60's and times to the 1/8 with it, but were done running up here til next year. Green Stone Brewing is now in full swing now.

Interesting..... would you believe the LPE 9.5 holds just under 4 quarts! Hopefully helps in cooling. A buddy of mine has the Hammerhead and has been very happy with it. He's at 710 RWHP and 774 RWTQ on a stroked LS3 Edlebrock setup. Nice to have a bigger selection of high end Camaro parts available now

Pumpkin is due for a new battery. Trying to decide if I can go to a Braille 21 with a 25% SLP UDP and get away with it as a sunny day driver? Love to carve off another 30#.
