We got the motor sitting in the car today and got the Vic jr back from Specialized Performance Coating. Was really pleased with the way that turned out.  Specialized Performance Coating

Got my 6061 elbow in for the vic jr. I think it is going to look great with the black finish on the intake.

Welp we worked on Ethyl's cold side plumbing today. Brian did an amazing job on the welding. I am thinking we just need to get the Co2 charging system in the boost controller then boost the sucker to the moon. One thing for sure, they ought to hear the explosion in Oklahoma.

We've got the car started now. Chasing some small leaks and ghosts. Hopefully starting to driveability tune once it gets some heat cycles on it.

She's alive. Got to driver her a short bit yesterday. Street tune only. We are going to get a few heat cycles on her before we get into any serious stuff. Took her to Sullivan's to have the transmission gone through again. Tranny had a leak so we will fix that then set her up. AFter that Steve is going to finish the boost controller. I still have to pin the hood and the Corbeau Forza seats are due in next week.We are going to take it easy onmher this summer and wait for cool weather to see what she will do. Video is somewhat boring but you can see the difference between the initial startup and the tune James put on her. Car is remarkably docile for a 1200+ rwhp car.

Sullivan's Motorsports finished going through the TH400 last night and we brought her home. Still have a few ghosts to chased down but made the 40 mile trip without incident.
