So Robert and I decided that if ERL is willing to stand behind this engine 100%, we're willing to put it in and test the theory! Should have this puppy running by the middle of next week, get some break in miles on her, and see what the limits of the TTi turbo kit really are. :-)

Have a safe trip tomorrow Robert. I'll send you some time slips after Joe brings over your drag radials....
For those of you whom he hasn't met, this is Corey, my builder and the mastermind behind the Beast that Brandi will be... all around good guy and serious cut-up.... None who enter are free from the abuse, but i like it and I was admitted as one of the family today, seriously...I was on my knees....






wiping up spilled antifreeze,


and my wife claims I smell like motor oil....

You don't strike me as that kinda guy to make a uninformed decision..

Can't wait to see her run... Oh and if you guys hear a couple camaros doing burnouts around midnight in your hotel parking lot on your way to the fest..... I won't be Me or PQ...

Just sayin!

2 dudes doing burnouts,,, who you bringing with you in addition to PQ, we all know that silly 66-7 aint smoking no tires...

Good to hear everything is coming together for you. Sorry we didn't get a chance to get together while you were back this time but certainly understand where your priorities have been. Looking forward to trying to keep up with you and Kyle on the run to Junction.

psssshhhh, I've been talking to a little bird, and he told me some stuff, and I do not believe you will have any troubles keeping up with anyone...

Robert, the car is going to be a BEAST and in more than capable hands. If you want an education, stop by and see Corey at Henderson Performance..... be prepared. He is now my performance shop of preference and I will be bringing my car to him to finalize some engine upgrades. Robert i'll pick up the tires on the way back from WF and as soon as the wheels get here I will take them have them mounted and balanced and deliver to Corey. As far as the video I can take care of it at the track. Be safe, WE got your back!

I appreciate the assistance and support.

Chris, If I have advanced notice, I'll keep you informed as to when things are going to happen...Corey signed up here on the forum to keep this thread up to date....

thanks all who are helping, and those just following along. I'm back in lovely Brazil, and omg what a forever long flight....it shoots have been 9.5 hours but due to a head wind it was closer to 11 hours... But I'm here...supposedly for only 21 days this time... Which should put me home on or around the 5th of April... Allow me a few days to drive the beast before heading to Chandler... And finally get to attend a Friday night gathering in San Antonio, for the first time since Jan.

Sorry guys, no pics at the moment, but corey just informed via e-maill they are an oil pan and clutch away from being ready to marry the power train back to the rest of the car...

They will try to pre-install part of the turbo setup , as long as it will clear the frame rails as they lower the car onto the front sub-clip...
