right now we are enforcing the roll cage welded points with body/chassis, installed a chute,,, redoing all car electricity and installing Holley dominator ECU along with new intercooler (A2A from shearer).

We are at final stages to finish it, hopefully 2 weeks from now we will have 1st engine start.
Thanks for getting back. Are you going to run the F2??

Have no plans to shift at 7k......from experience the 1-2shift at anything above 6400 with a ysi will result in tires breaking loose ...can't imagine what will happen with the x...as far as the 2-3 shift goes again around 6500 max.....which puts me at 70k impeller speed then factor in some belt slip and again I'm way below max impeller speed. Besides it's way more than enough for my poor little compstar rods and 4 head bolt setup.
Should have gone turbo
