Thanks, she should make power.


I'm having a great time working on this car, a lot of DIY in my garage.

A bit about the build, I ordered the billet block and most of the rotating assembly from AMS.  They also balanced the assembly to, can you believe 0.01 grams.  Not kidding, I weighed it all and thought, wow, that's impressive.



So, for the ever-growing build list:


AMS Billet Block 

​AMS Alpha X Turbo System

Sonny Bryant Billet Crank 4.3

Manley Rods, Pistons, Pins

Magnus Dry-sump with Mechanical Fuel Pump

AMS Carbon 12 Injector Intake.

T1 ID2600 up top with ID1700, Motec Engine Management with super cool custom T1 Motec Display

T1 Motec Sensors

Shepard Billet Front Drive and Wavetrac

DSS Axles, Front and Rear

VERKLINE - Lightweight Tubular Sub-frames Front and Rear

DSC Sport Shocks with Controller

SPL Suspension Components (All)

Flyryde Custom Lights Front and Rear

Roll Bar by RPM Rollbar

Recaro Sporter CS with Carbon Back

Belak Wheels - 17" and 18" with titanium hardware

M&H ROD-21 M&H Drag Radial Tire


I'll share more pictures as time permits


In the beginning






One GTR garage - Atlas psp-6000 portable single post lift with 1" to spare

Thanks Guys, spent most of the lock-down working on this project, turned a negative into a positive.

The German Shepard is usually within feet of me so he's always photo bombing my shots.


Reference the lift, I believe my ceiling is 108". if you want to work on these cars you have to get them in the air, so it is functional for the most part and when not in use, stows away along side of the garage.  I only lift the car to the ceiling when dropping or installing the engine or transmission. In addition to the mechanical locks, the driver side supports stands give me a little comfort when I'm under car at max height. I don't mind working on my back so the car only needs to be lifted 2 feet of so, a little less scary.





Good dog
