He just seems to be brutally hones about his ruckus and process with little apparent care for showmanship, structure or organization. I'm guessing there is no build book, notes, spreadsheets, failure tracking etc and that it's all just held in memory.

I like it but like everyone would like to see dyno numbers. I can't believe the frantic work and changes just before each dyno day. It's like the process of validation prior to an extent is undesirable in Fae's world.
Haha structure and organization. Yah. My goals have infortunately change a few times in this build. Yes no build book. I actually do have spreadsheets with parts and tuning research though. This was the first car i ever modified and have had to learn a lot. It has been very fun. I think I am probably in the top 20pct on this forum now in terms of overall tuning and modification knowledge now. I may still be a neophyte mechanic but i know stuff. Until one year ago i did not even have any car friends o_o;

As for the validation, welll i would have dynod this a while ago but there have been setbacks and also other things in my life.

Here is a pic of my badass new oil drain materials.

I thought all russians looked like some variation of Vladimir Putin, Stalin or that one guy that was in charge of Russia back when Clinton or Bush Sr was in office?
