Total rebuild of interior
Engine Bay Painted with motor out by Awesome Z (Danny)

Here is a link to the photos of it, we don't have any pictures from this month of it:


It is estimated that on race fuel it should be around 650HP out of a 3.0L V6, some have pushed 1,000 but again this is for road courses.

For those interested in straight line performance only, a very similar build (different by transmission - the guy had a 4 speed auto) was getting low 10's in the 1/4

Once the tuning is done, the only things left to do is rebuild the transmission, some body prep (dents) & painting, and we are going to redo the interior. The kit we did was our first one and we aren't completely happy with the out come so right now he's planning on buying another kit. when i picked up the car it was in really rough shape, then we took it out and even with cracked parts (possibly even a turbo) it was still chirping at 75mph. its going to be a beautiful car for road courses (and driving to the beach) when it's finished

Def a [email protected] build.

I got to drive one of those (non TT tho) when they were new and it was tight around the corners and man did that fly. I can't imagine what the TT does to it. Blast to drive.

Get more pics up when you guys get it done.

Thanks guys! All I can say is even with old tires and suspension, the handling was phenomenal. when we were jacking it up to remove some stuff we noticed that the car was only making contact on 3 of 4 stands (stands were uneven) The frame didn't twist or make any noises at all. It is a solid and heavy car but it handles like a dream.

We're probably a few months from course ready but road ready should be as soon as the tuning and break in are done. And maybe when it's warmer like in the spring. I'll def get some videos up when the time comes.
