    It was something that I fabbed up, if you look closely you will find a 1g engine pull bracket from the throttle body area as my belt adjustment device, as much as I like the direct drive idea, I want to be able to not run the pump at all times if I dont need it and without pulling the pump, plus the idea that if the pump locks up with a direct drive it would likely end up in a jumped timing belt vs this setup which should just sheer the skinny pump belt teeth, of course I should add more recent pictures of it all hooked up and functional, I have had problems with the pump pulley falling off out on the highway if its not in use and no belt on it, so I now pull the pump pulley off when not in use, those things are not cheap at over $100 per replacement.

    8.9 is the fastest that I've ever had it, with slicks and a welded diff, I'm sure a professional could knock a second or so off LOL, horsepower wise the maximum that I ever saw was around 980.

    Sure, depending on what your idea of street-able is, I dont daily drive it, and actually never did even when it was stock, it was bought with what it now is in mind from the beginning, it was bought as a toy, but I do take it where I want, I drive it to the shootout and to any car shows I want but it does take work to stop and empty the catch cans, the noise, the fumes, the monitoring of gauges the entire time, the lack of cruise control, A/C, idle speed control, etc can be off-putting at times but its the price of doing business for me, I enjoy it, and for me I can only ask: When you turn your car on does it return the favor? mine does!
