    Rob scores, very impressive sir. I'm a fan, admittedly - early american exotic, and twin turbo no less. not a big deal relative to the new breed (bit of a slouch compared to current tech), but 20 + years ago it was one impressive whip.

    Same here. Any more videos of your car in action? I loved watching those whenever you would post.

    I was going to. Before going to the track I was doing some fine tuning and I broke an axle. I replaced both axles and then I broke the trans!!!

    What is the install height on those springs? I don't see beehive LS setup.
    What throttlebody? Have any pictures of the entry into the intake runners?

    As far as the springs I used racing small block chevy springs and I had to machine the seats to fit them.
    I'm using a TPI 1000cfm throttle body with dual 58mm blades and the intake runners are designed for high volume and velocity.
    If you look at the runners they start very wide on top and they progressively narrow to match the head inlet valve opening.
    I chose the square design instead of the round for more flow and volume.
    Injectors were relocated 6 inches higher for better fuel atomization.

    I made a kit consisting of the intake, CNC ported heads with oversized valves and a camshaft to complement the intake and heads.
    Bottom end is stock.

    Oh and the exhaust was also upgraded. stock Y pipe vs stock.

    That sounds nasty! :-) in a good way.

    That combo would be nutzo with a little boost. :-)
