With all of these crazy HP cars coming it shouldn't fail to impress, that's for sure.

Dodge Ram 1500...5.7 0-60 in 6.3, 390 HP, 404 torque 11,350 towing capacity..4574 curb weight...

1100 lbs less weight, and way better gears, I'll take you down...

Always...

He's laughing at the rest of us...

Another Classic PQ story and video in the making here I see...

Been there done that... sometimes on purpose, sometimes not...

The Escalade actually does 0-60 in 6.3 (2WD not AWD), but yes, the towing capacity and rear gears are a bit off. I still think it'd be an interesting race. Tell you one thing, where it may lack in towing capacity, it makes up for it in looks, ride quality, and interior

Well, we are far enough along that Corey started setting up the Nitrous controller today... With the progressive controller, we'll ramp the nitrous in, starting with a 50 shot at 2500 RPM and ramp up from there...

I was working on a mount for the Boost controller solenoids and will finish it up tomorrow... I still need to find/build some cups for the rear sub-frame bushings... If any body knows of some that are available... from anyone that has installed the solid aluminum sub frame bushings...

Pics tomorrow.

I am sure there is a Donor car there at the shop you could salvage parts from for a short period of time.

Why not call IPS and see if they can help you out? Ask for Brandon.
