I didn't have them go through the dash, so probably not a full NHRA sticker type cage into the 8s, or even 9's technically. Right now it only runs 10.8s, but maybe when the new groceries are in that will drop a little. As for price, barely in the 2's. Chrome moly, good bends fully tied in across the back under the cargo liner and through to the main hoop. I like that I'll be able to swap out factory seat and use the same 4 bolts to attach the race seat, which will tie in to the harness tab all on one bolt. This was like an interesting oddity for him, though his real customers were really intersted in it once they saw it.

Here's a pic of what his primary work is.

Finished product with seat in place and cleaned up a bit from the complete removal of all interior needed for work in situ.

I've got a ways to go before they even take the old engine and blower out, let alone complete the new set up. I got a better chance making Bradenton, errr, GA. Did get the front l/s/d/ though, so that's a good thing. And now the coating is complete on the turbos...

as time draws on...., ordered a cam and prepped the headers for coating. Got some of the crap out of the primaries where the welds attach to the flange.

There was a good bit of crap in there.

Shop was kind enough to blast them for me. Thought they had been spray painted.

Bench racing dyno estimated effect - 80 hp and 20% faster spooling.


Actual HP gain, 4hp and turbos spool .03 of a second faster. LOL... but I'll "feel" much better about it...
