    Wow this build is insane! I am about to get my tubed front end done and would love to have it come out even somewhat as great as this build! Well done. Definitely setting the bar high with this build!

    Thanks! Things snowballed out of control a bit like they always do. It was a on/off project for quite some time. Pretty crazy end result. Good luck with your build!

    Well worth the time put in tho! Such a well done car and it's great to see a clean DSM getting this kind of Grade A treatment!

    My car was down by the shop on the main strip, "no crust" was parked next to me on the passenger side and Magnus on the driver side, this was taken up the road around the bend, I took some of it also.

    I have to set my guess at around 650 whp... That's a nearly uneducated, rough guess. But I'm almost willing to put money on that bet :)

    Pretty good guessing. She made 650 hp and 414 tq. Really fast spool from the Precision 6062 but I won't be getting the big boy #'s. Crazy fun on the streets ! I hope to do a T-case this winter and see what she can put down on the track next year.

    Plan on leaving the turbo there and not using an air filter? If track only car and trailered to the track its fine, no way I'd drive on the street with an exposed turbo turbine like that yikes.

    I don't have any plans on changing the set up.. I currently run a turbo guard (screen) I ran it on the street all season with no issues. I have a few things to do still before it hits the track.
