Ben it's running good. I'm looking forward to seeing how it does being driven in anger. Just for "fun" I took it to a shop with an "EGO Jet" and it made the number I was looking for . I already have the "restriction" issues under way so I might be back down there to see you all in a month or so.

To everyone asking for details there is a thread on here of mine titled "head porting project" that gives most of the details on the engine build. It's a Third gen Eaton M62, 17psi, forged EVERYTHING, 10.3:1 compression and C16, 5 speed, OSG diff and 3.636 gears. Ben and Jerry at DIY said it was the highest HP and highest tq Eaton car they had ever seen on their dyno. I'm not going to be posting the exact numbers it made until I have all the "bugs" worked out of it. When DIY got their hands on it the motor had 7 miles on it.

Here is the only under hood shot I have of it


Here are a few shots of the blower...When I first saw them I was pretty upset....then I got it on the dyno and was more than happy.



Here is the battery


Brake rotors






If there is anything else you want to know about it just ask.

And I should have said "FINISHED FOR NOW" or "READY FOR THE FIRST NATIONAL TOUR" a car is never finished.

Just for reference here are the 225/45/15 H20 Wets on 15x9 6ULs stacked beside the 275/35/15 A6's on the 15x10 6ULs. The "wets" run REALLY wide for a 225. More like a 245.

Did you reference anywhere that explained what you did to get your 15x10s functional on that NA body??? Actually, I think I remember you doing the widebody kit, or was that Sav??? I'm all over the place.

To get the 15x10's to fit was long studs, spacers, sawzall to the fenders, remove inner fender liners, bolt on flares and then drive it.

I think the spacers are like 8mm up front and 12mm in the rear. Ride height with me in the car is 4" front and 4.25" rear.

Love the car man. It's proper.

Lip looks like there is black tape smoothing out the transition between the lip and bumper....

Thanks man. The trophy was nice...To take a car that 2 weeks prior was literally on jack stands with no engine, transmission, rear end, shocks, control arms...etc etc etc....to a national tour and trophy at it's first event was pretty big. We got a lot of good data with the MaxQ and ECU data logs. And you all do realize when I said finsihed...I meant "Finished for Dixie" right?
