Robert, your car is nearing the finish line it looks like. Two random things to comment on.

Why is the fan for the dyno run pointed directly at your licenseplate and not on the side where it can get to the radiator?

I like how in the video the operator is smiling and laughing and then quickly turns serious and whips his head to the left to check the reading. It's like an instant "I'M SERIOUS NAO!!!!" moment.

Please post pics when you can. I like living vicariously through people who get to receive a ton of boxes all at once to open. =)

Congrats on the third Trimester.

As for where the fan is pointed, optical illusion, plate in a bad spot, I don't know... It'll be moved and put on the factory mounting bracket when I get it back...I have a hide a plate, but it looks like a&& and I can't stand it being off to the side... We have a cop here in town specifically looking for me, as he has stopped me three times already, and there is a cop in the PD that has a 2SS with no front plate... If I get stopped again, I will be paying a visit to the city manager and asking the police chief to explain why his officers are above the law... I also need to insure the plate doesn't interfere with air getting to the intercooler... so, it's the factory mount for me, and it'll cover mostly the front bumper cover... not the air flow areas...

As for Corey, he probably thinks I'm a nut case... He is a lot of fun and has a huge funny side, but is all business when he needs to be...

On a side note,

I just got a box delivered to my casa...

Thanks to Camaro21 (I believe he is the one that mentioned them) for the heads up on the deal for these... Got them through Amazon.com...

Thats why it will be in San Antonio... he uhm, ah , never mind... It'll be in San Antonio... Could you imagine them impounding and taking possession of this beast...using it as a patrol/pursuit car, heaven help the rare idiot that wants to run when Brandi is behind them...

And Kyle, you know you are on the list... Test drives will be minus the drag radials though... If anyone is going to try to pull the front wheels, it will be me, and if I break something it's on me...

I guess worse case scenario, I break one and replace them with something designed for pure racing.... that will handle the HP torque....
They basically said they would guarantee that particular design for 1200TQ/1200HP and even a 1.3x 60' time. They said they have tested them much further, but that is the "guarantee" level. Any more TQ/HP or 1.2x and faster 60' times...

Thanks Bruce, I feel better now, you had me worried a little, but I won't have the hp or torque to reach that limit. My injectors alone will limit me to about 900 rwhp.

Only 900 RWHP? Holy cow !!! That'll be a rocketship.
I bet you Brandi will still have great street manners with that setup.


I bet you are going to have a revolving line of rear tires from TireRack...

Well, GM and GMPP finally more or less came through...

my new GMPP spoiler finally arrived... only ten months after I ordered it... and it's black... but I'll paint it and that'll be fine... I'm just glad to have it prior to the fest....
