We mat get started on it in the next day or two...waiting on shop space... Corey told me yesterday he wanted lots of room. The Scud should have been finished last night, and the Bonneville Car is gone. They started a Whipple blower on a Camaro, but that's not a problem... I'll check with C and see where we are, I'm hoping to have it done by next week...

I really am going to try to be there, but my schedule is quite up in the air...

Hey, if it is tight, just fly up. I am sure you have enought frequent flyer miles to go there and back 50 times.

We will have a blast no matter what. Besides you could ride in 20 different cars over the weekend.


P.S. Take a look at this. Reinforces your numbers. Notice that they had to run a little higher PSI to achieve similar data.

Wow! That car in the vids had 22" wheels too. How much do you think he lost there?

Randy may be the resident expert in that category, but I'm thinking 20 or so HP...

Surprises abound...

I was told to ask around at the shop and find something that was left there for me...

Here it is... A billet license plate frame

Tag, Thank You So Much... It's awesome I Love It and I'll be mounting it as soon as I can get some stainless steel hardware...

Yup. About 20 rwhp in my case. When my car came off of the last dyno we realized that on a cool morning and with some 19s or 20s my car could be close to 600 at the wheels.

Horse power. Hard to make, easy to lose.

I'm waiting for a cool day to go back to dyno my car with the new 20s. I'll let you know if there's a difference.

When I saw your car the other night, I nearly flipped out! They were supposed to have that on Brandi BEFORE you got back!

Oh well...better late than, "Um....license plate frame? Sorry. I don't know what you are talking about."

Hope you like it, bro.


...and, if I may say, ....


Congratulations!!!
