I agree. Been slammed with aircraft and boat stuff. Will be flying out to check on the car shortly and hopefully get some video. Hey, we used stuff that I am sure you designed years ago such as the fuel system, etc. Good designs last forever.

The toughest part is having the 4 computers talk to each other properly. Really going to push hard for testing this week.

It really isn't that far from done. It could already have been on the dyno at this point but we decided to do absolutely everything before the dyno. That way once that is done, it just needs coatings and its ready for the road.

GForce is also just about done with the killer rear components.

The last pics I have are in post #834. It is a very beefy setup.

Road testing/tuning these cars is fun. Someone has to do it.

They have setups in GTO's and CTS-V's and stuff. This is the first one for a Camaro, but we had to be sure that the rearend solution was beyond marginal. There are many great alternatives, but this power level is really getting up there even for some of the HD drivetrain parts. This is Not a knock in any way to what is presently available.

Dang, but there are far and few people going to this level of a build. All that money and effort doesn't need to go up in a big ball of flames. Nothing wrong with protecting your investment.

I look forward to seeing the final product, I bet it's going to be a blast driving down the highway.
