Bruce, put it this way, I've seen outdoor ashtrays that were smaller than these axles...

Well, got some preliminary data on dyno numbers from a "sister" engine build. It is a little less radical in some areas, but even so Tom said the early numbers are above their best runs with the Alien 427 TT motor so we expect this one to run pretty well. Based on the data it looks like this motor will get well over 20 mpg and still make big numbers. The full run is tentatively scheduled for 3/1 so hope to have some more concrete info then. Definitely getting closer. The GForce differential and Outlaw axles are all installed. Just waiting for a few "special" pieces for the driveshaft.

Looks like we may need a different tranny yoke if the housing that goes around the Bowler tailshaft has needle roller bearings. Also Chris is making a cutdown version for more tunnel clearance.

At the lowest boost setting it can be set to, it made 862 hp. The SST intake and cam will likely move that up a teeny bit more.

I'm also doing some custom work to the Outlaw outer stubs to clear some bolts.
These will be a bolt in deal thanks to the combined work of Nelson Racing Engines and Gforce Engineering.
The Outlaw stubs clear the Spohn control arms and maybe others. We machined bolt clearance into a backup set we made for this project and will have them powder coated and shipped out tomorrow.
Once we get these little details worked out the Outlaw 33 spline axles and stubs will be a bolt in kit
I wont even throw a hp rating on these bad boyz, this is Promod stuff LOL

If you watch the Nelson Racing video of them showing cars they are working on, they walk by this one black camaro and state it will be at 1600hp when its done. Hmmmmm, I wonder if that was Bruces camaro sitting there?

He told me a number in a round about way.... but... it's almost unbelievable. The only reason I believe it is his and Nelson's integrity, but still... DAYUM!
Actually he told everyone but I guess only I could see it

So basiacally the car is done except for the "special" pieces for the driveshaft.

Cool. Maybe YOU can get some pictures and actual specific info for us. The owner is not very forthcoming with specifics.

Absolutely ProMod level IRS. If we actually break this it means the SST had bigger problems...

Nice. The true part is the SST spent around 83 days in Area 51 at Oshawa in the Spring of '09.

Notice the "tentatively scheduled" for 3/1. Been down this road so many times, BUT it should be the real date this time. Different kind of phone conversation...
