Oh ok I figured it was for clearance issues. Everything looks good on the build so far, keep it up.

It's actually pretty strong for how thin it is, you couldn't bend it if you wanted to. Thank man I'm just glad I have the majority of it done, I can't wait to get the motor and drivetrain in.

I built the manifold and frame. its cutaway to make clearance for the way my downpipe was setup, i had both side mounts made from solid aluminum, as well as my rear.. So i didnt use a front roll stop, leaving the front frame with zero need for a ton of strenth. All it held was the intercooler, radiator, and oil cooler. And even then, the oil cooler mount was on the opposite flange. She's plenty tough.

Cant wait to see what happens!!

Going to go look at a nice and shiny GT4202R tonight, I think it would look nice sitting underneath the headlight.

I think you need to get your numbers straight...... You are so far off on your weights that its gross. I think you should invest in a couple of scales..... And also good luck taking a hit with that front end if its not a solid chunk of tube..... It will shear and you will end up with a 4g on your lap, not to mention it wont pass tech.

And all of this coming from the guy chasing the 14b record. That's like winning the special olympics buddy. I'll take all of your advice into consideration.

Finished the fuel cell cover this weekend, just need to take it to get powder coated. The holes for the return and breather/tip over valve are just rough right now but will have a rubber grommet in them after the powdercoat is on.

I remember when they were first starting with Justin's car def a well put together dsm. Not surprised since they do some of the best work around. Are you going to make a new crossmember or mod the one you have already?

Ha ha thanks Boosted240^

I am going to make a new cross member and roll stop so that it bolts to the tubular front end just like the stock one bolted to the front end. In the next week or two the front end, manifold, downpipe, wastegate dump tubes, and cross member should be complete.

Justins car is so sick. I think its definitly the best dsm build theres been. The quality of work and parts is insane.

Like winning the special olympics? really? You do realize it takes a more thought out and better setup to get a 14b record than it does to run a 9 right? Id like to see you attempt to run a low 11 or high 10 on 350 hp....

How about you get some results before you trash talk? That's usually how its done.

In the mean time you have a paper-weight, just like me.

Keep up the good work OP! A bit partial to Red 1Gs personally.

Thanks! I love red 1g's, I was going to buy a red caged shell locally but someone on here got it before I could. It was Casey Baretts red one that went [email protected] with a 6262.
