I'm going to try to keep this thread updated with the direction of the car. In reality, it is almost done. The rest will be dialing in the car, and making sure I can squeeze every last drop of performance out of it. Along the way, I'll try to address weaknesses that come up. I guess I'm at the end of the build, but really its like the beginning of where the real work starts...if that makes any sense.

Hopefully a lot more tweaking and tuning to come.
It does like to run a little warm at times.

Ran mine in the Socal summer 100+ degree weather, with some of the same mods you have for cooling (Killer B TMIC, Charge Pipe and Perrin Oil Cooler) and added a couple of gallons of race gas to help keep the temps down.
