Congrats six! Bummer about the liners. My hubby did that same thing when doing something to his Evo 8, though not as bad as yours. Luckily, taking off and re-installing the front clip isn't to bad on our cars. The Evo is a major pain in comparison.

Good luck with the rest of your list. Glad it is moving forward. You get used to the noise of the SC pretty quick. Have a good time!

Haha I know what you mean. About a week after I got it installed I took it over to a family friends house who is a retired mechanical engineer who works on older cars now. When I started it up and had it running he asked "what the heck is that sound? Sounds like a bearing."

Awesome job guys!!

LOL. After I've driven it. I was not driving in the vid. Jon is much more experienced in knowing what to listen for and pay attention to so I was happy to ride shotgun. Last thing I wanted was a blown motor, already been through that.
As a passenger it felt pretty quick though it's kinda hard to get a full handle on the way it was driving. I did take note how quickly it accelerated to 98 on that "private closed to the public road" we were on though. Plus Jon was not flooring it in 1st and 2nd either. He was just trying to see how the car was behaving under boost. Pay attention to the camera errrrr GoCam on acceleration. Lol.

Truthfully Jon expected more torque down low but I told him that's not how these V3's seem to be working. They seem to be making full boost at redline. I heard him muttering "shoulda got a turbo"

Thot you and Gretchen would get a kick out of that. Jon is a big fan of the big single snail. He just might be picking up a used 6MT LS here soon and coming up with something. This build has the wheels spinning in his big bald head. Lol.
