Yup, thrown to the side for the box they came in... A box and an imagination could go anywhere...

Still awaiting news of any developments on the ProEFI...

It's not bad, hasn't gotten too cold. Night's are in the 40's, days in the 70's. Couple more weeks though and we'll start feeling winter's entrance on the horizon.

It's alright though, I just think about CF5 to keep me warm.

In Houston, it'll either be hot as hades and humid, or frigid cold that time of the year, though to you frigid cold in Houston would be a balmy summer day...

I've spent the last 5 night's or so going through your build journal from start to finish but, I'd be lying if I didn't admit to hitting fast forward a few times. I've done this with the Speedster build, Darth Emma's & now yours. DAMN you people eat a lot of popcorn! Yours is my favorite by far, I love that your car is used by you & its doing what it was built for. I give you major credit for sticking with it, you've had some major hurdles on your journey, you actually scared me a little, I hope I don't have any major issues with my car. I'm looking forward to seeing your car & meeting you at The Mile in a couple weeks. I'll be with the ADM camp & you'll see me driving around the pits in a white 4 seater Rhino. I hope the event lives up to the hype I've created in my head.

Robert,

There is a thread about a $380,000 1,500 RWHP Camaro floating around. You have better insight into this question than most. If you were to start with a clean sheet of paper, what would it cost t build a reliable 1,500 RWHP engine and fuel system?

All I can say Is we have a great time...thanks for reading through the build thread... It's been a road but we had and have a goal... What's next, not sure, but maybe the big bend open road race...

In march at the mile, someone offered my 95 k for Brandi and the trailer... He was close... I think starting from the very beginning and knowing what I know now, I could build another one for less than say 150000. Depending on the shop...
This would include the entire drivetrain, roll cage, fuel system, suspension, etc... This is a rough guesstimate...

Bare in mind, I'm on the third motor, 6th transmission iteration, 2nd diff, third clutch, third driveshaft, turbos number 7 & 8, third cam, second set of custom hand made turbo manifolds, etc... Like I said, knowing what I know now...

Also keep in mind driving around with 1500 hp all the time is silly and wasteful... That requires high boost levels and race fuel... Turn the boost controller off, sit on the waste gate springs, and drive around with say 800 - 900 rwhp on pump fuel... JMO...

Keep in mind this is a functional fast car, not a cosmetically driven car... It's rough and noisy... not even close to unacceptably so to me, but others would not like it possibly... racecar... It's a street legal racecar...

A little more of a breakdown....

Car, 2010/2011 2SS/RS.. 30 K
Rotating assembly short block, 15-20K 6 bolt block ALUMINUM... not cast iron.... Darton sleeves
Heads, LSA, less than 6-7 grand depending on valves and who ports them...
Turbo manifolds, 2-3 grand
Transmission, 7 grand
Clutch, 3500
Differential kit 6 grand
Roll cage, 2500-5000 grand
Turbo kit, as it is now... from scratch... 10-15 grand
Exhaust system, 1500
Engine management 5 - 7 grand
Suspension... you know better than I Pete...

Someone to reliably put it all together and make it work.... Priceless....

My entire build has been a test build... Lets see what works and what doesn't... I've been fine with that... and we have pushed the envelope at every stage... MY personal call.... racecar....

Corey has been a God send, he reels me in when he needs to, but every push it to the limit decision has been mine and I have no problem making that call....

Last October, I knew the heads were sketchy... stock cast LS3 heads... ported to the inth... we were pushing water at 18 lbs of boost... had new heads being ported at Lozano Brothers, so I wasn't concerned with them... We went 197.8 on boost alone, and it was my decision to turn on the bottles and heat em up...less than a mile later, well, it was time for new motor and heads... Again, my call... I lifted a head, blew out the head gasket and my goofy self didn't lift right away... I really thought it wasnt the motor as the car was still pulling... Wont ever make that mistake again...

None of the above costs include labor other than maybe the porting and rotating assembly and that depends on who builds it.... Lozano Brothers will build a motor to fit my needs, just the rotating assembly, for say 30 grand... If I sweet talk them...

No shipping is included, nor tuning etc

Also, there are several thousand worth of other misc items in a build of this magnitude... fuel lines hrdware of various different types, etc... It all adds up, but with a clean sheet, I think I could replicate her for 150K or less...

By doing it once and right the first time... Corey, Rob,Justin and Allan have taught me bunches about this car.... turbos, boost etc.... and then the other day Bull F-16 put it in plain english where even my goofy self can understand it.. he just keyed me in with the right words...

It's been fun, tons of fun... and I'll keep pursuing my goals with it... If someone made me the right offer, I'ld sell her and start over... The right price isn't what I've spent to date, but rather what it would take to replace her.....

Also.... Window tint, an extra hood for racing and my blade spoiler are my only cosmetic mods, other than the wheels and tires....

Cosmetics are supplied by GM... with a great looking car... and cosmetics dont make it go fast.... Grills and side skirts and wings look good on some cars.. but they are shrapnel when they fly off the car in excess of 200 mph.... My blade spoiler comes off, as do the rear view mirriors for the mile... I don't need the down force or to see whats behind me at that event... and no one can tell me if the spoiler would stay on the car at those speeds, plus it would be too much wind resistance...

Welll it's official,

I leave the rig on the 14th of October, which doesn't guarantee I'll be home on the 16th, but that the plan...

They have notified me whom my relief will be and that he'll be here Monday morning...

I've got soo much to do to get ready for the mile... I need to start a list...

shopping, RV, trailer, registration for the car on the street... though I guess that could wait, do need to re-register the trailer, Hans device fitting and install for my helmet and I,

Corey still has the completion of the PROEFI system and then tuning... need to replace one tire, though it's brand new, I did have that flat from the broken valve stem and I dont want to depend on it for a (hopefully) 230 mph pass... Coolers, Ice, Nitrous, etc....

Those of you that race pretty often, feel free to throw in items you think of... Help is appreciated...

I subscribed to this a whole ago sí can see where this car is going and how you have taken it through. Amazing car! I can't wait to see what you run and how everything turns out! Great build! I hope one day I can do this to a car. I'm only 16 is what I'm told and many years to think. Years is a long time. But hey, it is true. Again love the build!
