Default Pete'* Poster Is Here, PreShow Hooooin!

Just got back from Dreamakers Kustoms, Got everything Done for the Show In Hershey Park tomorrow. Had to wire SubBassAmp in and connect the Kicker Square Subwoofer to it. Tuned it just right and has awesome driving Bass. Thanx Alpine For a 8 inch size of the Kicker Square Subwoofer it puts out an Awesome sound and the OEM sound insulated backglass really pounds the bass to the front! Also finally got the 120Volt Inverter mounted pernament.

Pete'* Poster got there just when I was finished, so I brought it home, framed it and snapped a couple pics of it, the Car, The Subwoofer system, and The Inverter.

Sorry for the fuzzy shots but the rain wont let UP!!!

Hoping it will make the same impact as it did at Carlilse and I've added some more mods so it wont be for lack of trying if i dont place. Gumball I love the sound it pounds but into front of cabin, I was worried the sub would overextend without a box but the Alpine unit has some nice tuning features and the Car now Rocks!

Thanx everybody... Biggest problem now is getting some sleep. i have to get up at 3:30 (my usual bedtime) to make it to Hershey before the gates slam at 8 AM.

You ***WILL*** be at BonneFest '06!!
That car phenominal to say the least. I can only imagine what it looks and sounds like (true, I've never really heard a GXP running, except at idle in traffic).
I wonder how that car would respond to ported/ceramic coated exhaust mani'*.

LOL Handruman> thats airlines also and it is a gaagle of lines electric and other. Lucky judges are lazy and dont bend much and it seems everyone at shows has them everywhere. When I build the subwoofer box. it will cover the whole mess. You cant even see the 16 valve wires, 6 compressors wires, 14 air pressure sensor and gauge wires. Also when I get back I will be hard wiring the Inverter into the valve electric selenoid so the clamps will be gone to. Planning on putting 120volt outlets in cabin, front and back as well. Have to watch what i run at one time and already have blown a couple fuses Will have alot of time to kill before the judging tomorrow .... Better take some wire ties with me and straightened it up a little.

Engine and heads is problematic squeeze cast aluminun and I wouldnt dream of porting or attaching steel headers to it. The heads are known to warp just looking at them funny I am pretty much resigned to running the **** out of it now, and looking at ways of putting a real "old school" V8 in it later. A Olds 350 bored 403 with a early 90 Caddy tranny has been done to a few FWD'* and exploring that. These N*'* really are un moddable. They are unflashable and have so many inherent details that dont allow for umph. The best thing I can come up with is a head swap with a L37 and thats alot of work and expense for 25Hp and even less torque. For that kind of trouble, I'll leave my 75Hp nitrous shot in.
