The funny thing about the rumble is that a TT car (unless under boost) is actually QUIETER than stock since the turbos are taking energy AWAY from the exhaust. We may end up taking the mufflers off if it is too quiet.
...but when you are under high boost, well, let's just say it is not longer stealthy.
I bet

So what you're saying, Bruce...is that when you're driving this thing through town, you'll avoid unnecessary attention from the local authorities....but when you're on the track and the lights turn green......


People in the stands will be straining to find the Jumbo Jet that sounds like its 200ft above them?

Just got off the phone with the guys tonight. All underhood systems are done. Just tweaking the line loc and transbrake circuits. Also we are taking the factory 4 gauge center console pack and building custom gauges for it. Will look bone stock but will actually be boost, air/fuel, fuel pressure and egt. Just about ready to pull the motor for a trip to the dyno room. Things will really accelerate once the differential is shipped.

Keep us updated Bruce. This build is coming to fruition pretty soon. I'm requesting you post engine dyno videos as soon as possible.

You wouldn't like me when I'm angry...

You are 100% correct. No way will I look at those while driving, but we are going to try to make them with memory so there should be around 30 seconds of playback. The Firebird is a little different but its 10 gauges are computer controlled and will record for an hour.

A HUD would be great later in the year !! Thx for the cool idea.

Do you have the Firebird back from upholstery?

I don't think you'd get any complaints if you posted pics of it in your build thread as well

Hey Guys -

Thanks for your patience...believe me it is tough to wait on this end too.
