:smt098 and the Snow (#$%#$%#($%(#$

Sup Whip  :smt109
Your right it's running :smt026 :smt026 :smt026
(I've only heard it idle, BUT IT SOUNDS FAST) :LOL



Lots of build pic's HERE

Wish I has something to report, but I dont "YET". Just waiting for it to be finished.
Sal's got  some small stuff like a new PSP Fast Air System, the Maf Extender still
needs to be hooked up and the Truck totally retuned. At the moment we're waiting
on 02 extender's so the inner wells can go back in after the sensors get rewired
and hooked back up, I think that's it?

(you can see them dangling here in the pic)


People, I can not tell you how antsy I'm getting about now,  :smt120
crazy even :smt101 hehehehe

Sal if your out there, IS IT DONE YET ??? [smilie=fingersx.gif]

Hey Rob,
How about some update!! You've probably drove that thing by now, and got it broke in nice, now let's hear some number's!! :D
I'm hoping to have a few updates through JLP to stay with you and Gator!! I doubt I will have them done before the SSOTN event but I hope you guy's come down for the Fall event too. (Plus I'm on vacation during the Spring event, but maybe I can have Johnny drive my truck!!)
Sorry I won't be able to meet you and Gator on the 16th!

It's all done, well just a few small things to finish up, but it's got the FASTair installed and all. I gave you a black Outerwear for the new filter, so your entire induction system is black now. It looks sweet :).
I wired in the MAF Extender, but I have the jumper plugged in for now. I'd rather use a normal tune to break it in, and then when you bring it back for dynoing, we can start fresh with the MAF X plugged in.

Truck sounds great. I might be able to finish it up for you to take by the weekend.

Catch you later.

WE GOT US A DRILL, AND WE AINT AFRAID TO USE IT  [smilie=omgrofl.gif]

OK OK, I'll give it another week or two before I start drilling D, 
I Promise :smt083

I can only work on it on the weekends anyway, so if Mother Nature cooperates the next few, and I get it home SOON :D I'll work on installing the Solenoids, hooking up the lines, rewiring
the Solenoids, and bottle mounting. WOO HOO, DOUBLE TROUBLE .............


I'll hold off on the nozzle as long as possible, great to know the other parts will be here by the weekend, Thanks Denny  :cheers:

Dang there must be something I can use one of these new drills on :smt017
:LOL

Suavy, I got some med's if you need a little help :)

I hope to have some good news before a week or two. As you know the angle of the hole in the TB plate is why it's taking so long. A straight hole can be drilled with ease on a basic machine but the angle requires a special machine that has been tied up for weeks now. We are having the countersink made also so we can install the nylon washer for a soft landing and have injector angle adjustability. I am having black and polished solenoids sent over also and then onto the new standard billet bracket. Better things are coming but time is not on my side as people want products. [smilie=eek4.gif]
