Car made 575/499 on only 15psi of boost with the 3.25" upper. The headers might have a hand in dropping the boost a touch.

SAE numbers were 562.11/487.90. The torque doesn't surpise me, as the Whipple don't make a lot unless the boost is in the higher range. I am satisfied with the numbers it makes, it pulls hard all the way to redline. Sounds like a beast too.

There is more room on the pumps and injectors, but I need to see how it does with heat on the next Willow Springs Day.

The intercooler manifold in/out of the blower is improved for flow, next steps would be to run some larger hose and most likely a large pump to push the water through.

Nice. That's 100hp/40tq more than my Gen 1 Apten/Steg-ported Eaton made at the same boost level. I bet yours made that with lower IATs to boot. :clap:

All clear mechanically, so the STB finally went back on. The piece makes a difference I notice in the tightness of the car. It's just a royal PIA to get on and off.

Hopefully I can get my new coil covers and oil cap coated this week.

Finally got my new coil covers and oil cap installed. They are the original FRPP billet pieces, not the newer cast versions. I had them ceramic coated to keep them clean with little maintenance. I think they make the red cam covers pop a lot better with these than the old ones. It will look even better once I clean up the oil separator lines.

I'm anal with details so I tossed the factory hardware and installed them with ARP stainless 12 point bolts.

So, lets say someone was needing some garage space, a new commuter car, and to free up some cash for a new home purchase.

What would such a guy post up as a confidential "Buy it Now" price during a secretive closed door auction for such a machine? 8-)
