Thanks for posting the info! I definitely like his sleeper set up and +1 to his minimalist approach. It shows that you don't need to throw lots of go fast parts at your car to make it run, just the right ones. A couple of observations. 1) Since the cams were designed for a centri set up that means the potential for even greater n/a power with cams ground for normal breathing is there, 2) the centri grind probably explains the big power jump on the bottle with only 750 psi. I'd have to say with a the bottle pressure up around 950 psi and a proper nitrous tune 11's are well within reach

Thanks for posting this Todd.

The cams are a pretty aggressive grind, they really need the 4.10s and the 3500 stall to work NA. Another note on the heads, I had them machined to accept Cobra springs which have allowed me to make power past 6500 rpm and when I had the Centri blower it helped to keep making power.

A v6 with stock power is no fun .
For bolt-ons, those are great numbers (13's).

I agree, nice stance.
How 'bout air under the tires when braking/cornering?
SWEET too, I say.

The exact cost is hard to nail down, there was a lot of work done when the heads were done. I'm going to say the head work and cam grinds were in the 2800-3,000 range.

Are you going to get a carbon/aluminum driveshaft? It is one piece and will shed around 30-40 pounds, and they claim to pick up some good RWHP from it.

But back on topic, killer times! Congratulations on the fastest N/A 4.0 time!
