threw it on the dyno at cappola motorsports,

http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/433/img1124bu.jpg

Car put down 290WHP and 300 ftlbs on a humid 90deg in the middle of July.

dyno pull, ( we were only going to 5,000 RPMs Im sure if we went higher the car would have made 300whp easily) The throttle response and the power curve were awesome.

#2199

Dude, the exhaust sounds AMAZING. Great job! This is probably my favorite build thread of all time.


#2200

Been spending some time doing little odds and ends that I’ve been over looking. changed the oil, doing some cleaning, fixing some leaks here and there.

first off this eye sore.

while I was polishing my valve covers and air cleaner fins I decided to polish the top of the rad. At first I wasnt gonna do it but it looks good. Its not a mirror shine so I like it. It has a finished look to it.

another thing I have to do is paint the fanshroud black.

I also noticed the centers of my wheels are starting to age nicely. They are starting to get the bronze color that the movie car wheels had on them. It really ties them into the car much more now. Im going to take the wheels off an polish them inside and out, they need it badly.
