And I just remembered one of my employees used to work there when he lived in the area. Small world.

Looks like by the time my warranty is up, AWD tuning will have some under their belt :happy0180:
No interest in building and tuning DAFUQ???? Im in southern california and when i get the money put together ill drive my happy ass out to texas and get this done, dont know why theres not much more of a passion to make these cars great. More people out there that want to slam the car, pop out the wheels and slap a bunch of carbon fiber and rediculous body kits on the car than actually making the car great.

The StopTech brakes are a great fit as well. Very impressed with the quality of the whole kit as well. Can't wait to see them in action!

We installed the kw variant 3 coilovers as well. Right now they are lowered but the are adjustable so we can raise them if we need.

We should have the last of the parts in early next week. Then we will break in the brakes before getting it on the road. We will be putting about 300-500 break-in miles on the engine before getting it on the dyno. Hopefully it should be on the dyno by next weekend. I'll keep you posted! Until then, enjoy the pictures!

This has been an expensive endeavor indeed. The only weakness left is the Aisin MT which is only rated in our car at a measle 210ftlbs. there are gear sets being developed as I speak and I will be holding out for them and going easy on it....no digs or missed shifts. Looking into possible doing a tranny swap. The diff. seems to be a lucky strong point,..and from networking from other high hp guys, holding up well. I'm glad I went to a carbon fiber driveshaft to have some torque twist to ease the transfer of power. I've gone from a returnless system to a return fuel system via a pressure regulater with Full Blown fuel rails and additional fuel pumps via Don's system, I should never have a fuel lean issue again. My engine should be as bullet proof as the after market will provide,.....the tranny is another issue,...it worries me.

Arrgh crap

did you toast the short block only ? or did the heads get messed up too ?

Still going to use ur old positions and rods ? (pauter n cp if I'm correct )

Guess a pair of bearings are necessary to anybody building an engine now
