Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.

Friday ? Friday ?

That would be awesome. Good Luck. Keepin' our fingers crossed. If they can pull it off by Friday you need to send them a case of beer, bottle of Dom, lots of greenbacks, etc. That would be mighty impressive...

I know this schematic looks sort of chaotic; but this is the belly shield that keeps air flowing under the car without creating lift.

GM part #'s

#22765382 under pan
#11570215 Nuts
#11610055 Bolts

Not sure exactly how many nuts and bolts




At 200 mph + this might help!

Nice find....
18 bolts?
The factory splitter is starting the low pressure and the panels are holding it thru the front 1/3 of the car... look at the underside of the splitter, that's where the magic starts.
Might lose some mph to downforce, but well worth it!

I'll run my HP and TQ against your suspension... but only in a straight line... On a track in Florida, I come out of a turn and hammer it too hard and I'll spin into Tennessee...

Thanks.... That's a lot of reading... Hopefully in the next week or two we'll be able to post some good times from the track...

Nice, Now I need to figure out if it will work with the pan from my turbos... of course, anything can be modified....

Lose a couple of miles per hour can be made up for with adding a touch more boost.... lol... just kidding... I'll gladly give up a few M'sPH for safety...

Corey and I were both surprised by how small the AMS 1000 Boost controller is... Think about the size of a pack of cigarettes...

We are going to terminate the wires and have the controller in the console. Nothing else will go into that compartment, other than my phone charger which will be plugged in and not an issue.

I'll post some up as we progress through it....

I thought it was pretty small. Saw some Suzuki Hayabusa's running them and it was under the seat.

Heck, this thing would fit under PQ's seat...

It just seems like it's ten feet tall and bullet proof in the ads... so in reality it's 2 inches by 3 inches and bullet proof...

Nice, I'll keep my eye open for them. Not much going on with Pumpkin right now until closer to spring.

Well, we started making progress on the differential...

It was a learning process for me... but a good one...

Right after lunch we put the transmission back in the car so Corey and I could start fabricating the fittings for the new turbos.

I got a few new pictures and will have more as time goes...

I want to send a shout out to Joe, Racer778 for the assistance. He stopped by and got his hands right in the thick middle of it all...Mike stopped by late this afternoon and offered some moral support...
