    Yea, there isn't much room under the hood anymore for things. I guess you can say I kind of figured out a way to take up all the real estate haha.

    Yup, eventually I'm hoping for 5.0s and sub 8 second passes with this motor setup. Cage will need to be updated but I just bought one of those Rogue Fabrication benders to make the changes needed ;).

    Fired the car up and got the idle tuned. Waiting on a set of new axles and getting the cage re-certed and I should be able to race it in January or February.

    Car is pretty much good to go. Waiting to get the new hood back from paint and then I'm shooting to have the car at Fontana on the 27th of this month.
