Default "Blue Valkyrie" UPDATE! w/Pics!

Added and FINALLY finished Halltech GT2 DRED Hood and the Carbon Fiber Roof and HALO salvaged from a wrecked 2011 ZR-1 (did a roof subframe transplant between the carbon "fixed roof" subframe and the stock painted "targa roof" subframe.) I'll let y'all judge the results. Last pic is from 'Vegas Vettes' dyno day @ the Shelby place here in Vegas - 389 HP and 380 TQ to the ground @ 152mph. Thanks to Craig Pearson for the impromptu professional photoshoot (litterally met this guy @ Red Rock Canyon and he just started snappin pics - the shady/shadowy ones) @ Red Rock Canyon last weekend. The sunrise pics @ Red Rock were taken by me, as well as the others.

Enjoy












Don't worry - the hose clamp has been turned over -

Very Nice! Particularly like the the Halo mod and the (Cyber gray?) hash marks.

Just curious about the dyno results though. Seems a little light?

Yes, Cyber Gray (the hood color has a Cyber Gray stripe seperating the Carbon and the SSB color too )

390 is to the wheels (w/a standard 15% loss from the motor, that would put me @ 457 @ the motor) - LS3 dry sump/NPP & a Hurricane intake - i also needs a tune :/

Thanks
