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

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
