Last Spring was kind of the testing period, figure out what works and what doesn't. Throughout the summer I had little issues here and there. It would always start up if the battery had juice in it though.

In November took it all apart again, redid everything and upgraded everything that was giving me issues, a few things I can think of off the top of my head are different head gaskets, modified throttle cable, shorter oil pan from like 70's muscle car (forget which one), replaced gasket in fuel pump, ARP head studs, re-wired it, grounds, re-shaped/re-welded front subframe, different alternator, coolant reservoir, had to go from 3" exhaust to a 4" due to to much back pressure, etc.

Now it runs flawless, literally starts up everytime and waiting to get hammered on. If anyone wants to buy it they'll see that. There are a few people on here that have seen it recently.

This car is extreme dangerous for public roads so I do not let others drive the car unless we're on an airstrip (which I have access to if anyone wants to buy, money must be present so I know I'm not wasting my time). I drive the car on public roads, although it's extremely annoying because EVERYONE just slows down and looks, that makes me look like more of an A hole when I go roasting by causing a ruckus and shooting 4' flames. It's extremely annoying to drive as a Daily, you have to shut the car off when in drive thru's, then when you start the car they think the buildings going to calapse, and the persons front bumper behind you melts. Everywhere u go, even if it's on the highway, everyone is telling you to roast the tires, even cops, so obviously it's kind of hard not to which leads to tires tires tires and more tires bc I just go all out rather than some quick 5' burnout that most people do.
