Car is in the shop

He says he's going to give me daily updates, mostly with pictures, anything I get I'll post.

Meanwhile, I'm cracking down on the motor. Trying to get this one as close to perfect as possible.

You're a madman Splinter!
No wonder you're working so hard to get the engine perfect.

ARP block bolts, ARP headstuds, eagle rods, wiseco piston, delta cams, oil squirters, internals statically and dynamically balanced, sodium filled exhaust valves...

Trying to hit 400whp on a 20G turbo is not an easy undertaking... especially on Rocket's dyno. I doubt I'll hit that mark, but shoot for the stars, right?

Because there's nothing wrong with a stock location 20G

Fast spool, cheap, reliable, clean looking.

And if I really felt the need, a year down the road there's nothing stopping me from going rotated mount.

I just really don't feel that it's necessary.

From someone who has been down this road extensively, I think you'll be very happy with the results. Best of luck with the project. If I can help at all please ask.

X-car. I sold her at the beginning of '08 to get into motorcycle racing. The car was off-road use only and racing it was getting prohibitively expensive. I think you'll be happy with the result.

Will your body guy be extending all the fuel filler tubes and such for you?

The cage and flares were done at the same time. I honestly don't remember how long it took. T'was many years ago.

No. He said he couldn't quote me because he had no idea how long it'd take. He's done it on a porsche but it was a very different design so yea

It could be anywhere from 4-8g, after paint.

Basically, not much more than getting it done in fiberglass, and fiberglass will crack.
