Each time he downshifted and took off I just kept up with him to let him know he could not pull away...He finally realized he could not beat me, and turned off on Forsythe from University Blvd...

well guys, i drove the car tonight. considering the car desprately needs the additional injectors and split secont along with a good tune, it was very impressive. seemed to be running a bit rich in the lower rpm range, but once the motor was in boost, the air fuel became perfect and the car would accelerate very very smoothly and quite fast for the minimal ammount of boost. if i had the money and a 400, i would consider this option. i cant wait to see what its like with the full 27 lbs once its tuned!!

Gang:

I had a silver Neon SRT4 pull up behind me and purposely gas his BOV, so I could hear it. I could not resist, so I took him on....As we hit the on ramp, he could not pass me, then when we hit I-4, I gunned it, remember, I have turned my boost down to 3-4 lbs. I hit 110, and he was several car lengths back. I then slowed way down, and he blew by me only then...

It was fun...

The Pauter rods are in...Beauts!!! Extremely heavy duty, excellence in craftmanship and quality. I took pics and will post them up. I also got in the ARP Head Studs in as well. All is in now for the completion of the engine build... I will do the swap after the Injection mod is installed, the second fuel system is completed, the Split Second is installed and tuned on the stock engine. I want to see how far the stock engine will go. I plan to dyno it for posterity as well. After that, the swap and serious boost and power come.

Right now, the car is at Ultimate Audio getting the gauge pod done, the Bel radar/laser detector installed, and the door pods redone...I decided I did not like the impracticality of the 6.5 speakers sticking out so far...They actually started hurting my leg as they were in the way for my leg to rest near the door while driving.

Lots to do...
