What is that god awful buzzing sound? It sounds like he has a bee hive in his trunk. I also like his hotside coolant reroute. Atleast that is what it looks like.

Why is the adjustable cam gear on the exhaust and not intake side?

From the video (1:49) the pump looks like an aeromotive a1000 that's mounted outside the tank. My friend runs one in his GTO and it screams, of course his car makes more than 200whp.

aeromotive is very loud.

wally 255HP is somewhat loud.

does this POS have a 6 speed or some other strong trans? I don't want to visit cr.net to check, but if he's running a 5sp with a posi rear end I'm going to **** myself laughing

dont worry, the tires he's running on the rear will break loose before the trans will.

I was thinking something is loose. Whatever it is, it's extremely annoying.

I like how the reroute used a fluted hose right where it can absorb more heat from the turbo and manifold.
