Nightfall gray ghost build.

Well, it has taken more than 2 months to complete, but the build is finished and the car is back together awaiting the tune files from ligenfelter.
I originally only wanted to do a stage 1 build, that is, CAI, headers, exhaust pullies, etc...
But the mechanic asked, "since the car is pretty much apart, do you want to do heads and cam now??"
After about a 15 second pause, I said "might as well"
So.....ligenfelter cnc ported the heads, ported and polished supercharger intake, installed different springs and intake valves, and supplied the new blower cam.
All this coupled to American racing s.s. long tubes and a Borla atak exhaust system.
Car is back together and the shop needs to do the tune. I'm about as excited as I have ever been.
I have never heard the new exhaust setup, so now I think it will be awesome with the "stage 1 and stage 2 builds being done all at one time. I will post performance stuff as soon as I have it.

Heads/Cam/FBO would typically be qualified as a stage 4 build.

Stage 1) Intake and pulley
Stage 2) Same but add headers (Possibly throttlebodys and porting the blower/snout)
Stage 3) Same but add a Cam (E85, Meth, and other small things can fit in as well)
Stage 4) Same but add Head work (Same variables)
Stage 5) Same but add max effort pulleys if not already, ported blowers if not already done, E85, Meth, etc.

Definitely get us some pictures and videos when you can!

Then I definitely went right thru to stage 4. Ino my mind, the first half of my build, I was calling "a stage 1 build"
I actually didn't know that actually 4 categories existed in the world of building power.

Got my car back, and it is an awesome ride! I need to find a better way to post pix other than photobucket. All pix are on my phone. Any suggestions on how to upload from my phone gallery?

on the bottom of the page either quick reply or go advanced buttons, IDK if they have a cell phone page that might have different options than the pc page we are looking at now.
I hate it when I'm on my smartphone and it forces a different html page with less options than the pc page.
