I know better than to eye ball the measurement, I just got sloppy. 100% my fault.

That's where Rich stands for now on this build. I'll keep the thread updated as he continues working.


Nice Job Rich... I'm completely Jealous man...


If you're so inclined, here is the whole thread.... The work has been amazing, even from the beginning. Very much worth going through it, if you're into True Custom Work...

Tuning in the wastegate and the 1st nitrous stage. She's carrying over 1000 hp out there at 4000+ RPM's now. I can't use the 2nd and 3rd kits on the dyno because they're tied into my torque converter and OD solenoids, so they need to be disconnected on the dyno. This is without the estimated ~300 hp that I still have on top of these numbers.

And here is how she's sitting right now.....ready to do some huntin'....

The only area that gave some concern were the OD clutches, but we identified and took care of that today....

But, now that this big puppy is in there, now it's time to turn up the wick. Rick from Garmon's will be running the truck this Friday night at AMS and after that we'll T&T on Sunday and bring in the rest of the Go Fast.
