672 is about perfect too..

That's what you get when you wait... A long list. Didn't have to be first on anything except that pulley either.

Ohhh... We have something up our sleeve with JRod right now... Stepping up the fuel system and changing a few things up. Will still be the Novi 1500 blower

Mike your car turned out awesome, JRod Built, FSP Tuned, FAST Dyno... Damn what a winning combo that is!

Oh Shieks... this should be good..

Thanks for everything Matt. Great Job by all involved and especially your direction! Just wish I could have stuck around a bit more. It was a crazy week.

Sounds like you guys made the best of things with the TX2K rain out and all.

Sounds awesome, Mike!

Is yours a daily driver? What were the specs on your Cam?
