Driveability is incredible, although traction is now a definite issue as well as keeping control of your right foot!! lol....Power is in a word...UNBELIEVABLE!! Its a beast. Im going to take it to Dynojet headquarters here in Las Vegas and have Dan Hourigan put it on the dyno and take a peek at the numbers and tune.

AWESOME! Notice any extra heat in the engine compartment? You set it to run on 91-92 octane right? GGBIW

dont notice much extra heat at all....91 octane tune for now...its a daily driver
You mentioned traction being an issue. Your gt500 already had some modification to the suspension. I'm glad heat is not an issue. It really looks good in the photos. I believe you are King of the hill as far as gt500's go. Thank you for keeping us informed on your build up.:) GGBIW

What was your real thoughts about this set up, Pros and Cons.

I am still charting out my course and would like to not be to and fro. These are not 100. 00 pieces any longer as they were many years ago. Everything is 4 digits.

What gear did he have?

Thanks ILLEGAL

Wow, now I feel violated. Damn, should have done the extensive research before because that's the type of guy I am. I definitely believe in the "Big Bang" from the get go. Wow, still unbelievable but I know it's true.

I plan on running this setup for a little while longer and then, definitely back to the store. 703 HP (amazing):eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

They are solenoid valves that are installed with the front hydraulic lines for the brakes.It builds up pressure then locks.To release you flip a switch or in this case you honk the horn to release.Used for racing.Here is a picture of the car with brake locks and KB supercharger,enjoy.
