We respected His friends wishes so that we would not have a handful of people getting in
the way so that they could get the work done..


we later went to pick Bill up up and meet his mechanic friend... And we were dead tired as it was getting close to 1am and was a good 40 minute drive back to the house.... so I'm sorry there are no good pics...

But I have to say the car shifts and runs great...

we are hoping to run at the track tomorrow..

With all the learning that PCM has to do? I dunno... it'll be interesting to see what his car runs. Put me on record as guessing mid 13s

I think low 13s with street tires and high 12s withs slicks. But I guess it all depends on his ability to tune and then launch with the new power Godspeed to you Bill!

12'* are tough even with slicks, mid 13'* street, 2 10ths better with slicks, optimal conditions and tune would yield 13.2

Need ported heads and intercooler to see 12'*
Still theres gonna be a PB in the mix as he tames the beast

That'* what I'm hoping for this year.

Boosty has a cam, gears, N* TB and timing control.

I have the water injection.

I figure our race weights to be similar considering my size compared to Boost'*.
I just lost 20 lbs since last year.
You do what you gotta do no matter what

It'* a good day to die.
