Hahaha was waiting for something like this. Well played Harrison.
I was alerted to this thread last night by my cohorts.....LOL!
I would first like to state that I am a bad influence for sure.
Also, the G2 paint is Voodoo Blue, you clown. LMFAO. When I said "flash" in the text that was in regards to one of the pics I sent you having the flash on my phone camera.
Interior lighting isn't blue either......it's purple, and your gauges are red. See:
What else, what else......hmmm, that's all I remember. I can load 32 images on your head unit for the photo, time to burn a CD. LOL
Ah tomato tomatoe. Voodoo blue it is. And the interior lighting will be changed when I get back in the seat of my car this Saturday clown. LOL you have too much time on your hands.
Let me also add.....
I have some ideas for those amber and red markers/reflectors.

My favorite part of this build is being told on a daily basis that you hate me......not that it always involves the car, but it makes me laugh. LMFAO.
Get used to it......

Thanks a lot bud definitely appreciate that. That is quite a while down the road but in the mean time we Chicagoians need to get a get together going.
John why are you going to a 373's? thats pretty low gear for this car, 1rst and almost 2ond are going to be useless under WOT, if they weren't already lol. This car is so powerful as it is, I doubt you need more gear. I bet your 0-60 times will gone up, as you'll have to shift to 2nd before 60 now....Just saying, if I were you, i'd do your pulley swap/other mods first just to see how you like it, as it will be such a huge difference in the way it feels....you may not want a lower gear..
ie..My car has stock 355's, and at the 600rwhp mark there is no way id go lower in a manual trans....just too much power and too short of gear IMO.....if i were auto, that would be different....Im curious to see how you like it a 373 in that car...
How do you find the new Michelin Pilots Sports? Most guys run at least a Drag Radial for street traction....
Steve, the reason I decided to go with the 373's is per information I have been reading on the SVT forum. The other members who have made this sway are looking to make more power down low at a sacrifice on the top end. Honestly I will never find a place with enough track to hit 200mph (without heavily modifying the vehicle). So instead of keeping the stock gearing in which was aimed to achieve that goal, I have decided to make it more power heavy down low. However, like you said I know it will only make traction worse. So instead of swapping the gears immediately, I am going to install all the mods on the stock gears, see how I like it and then maybe make the switch.
I definitely agree about the drag radials. Unfortunately I haven't driven it with the new tires yet as I travel every week and don't have time to. I will let you know this weekend what I think. I certainly know these aren't the biggest or stickiest tire but should serve well as DD tires. Drag radials are in the future, but I will not be mounting them to my stock SVT wheels which are 9.5 in width. I will be getting minimum 10.5 inch wheels which I can mount 335's to.
I appreciate your info, it is very useful.
I am DC and I approve of this post.
Being as I have John's car, still easy to break those tires loose in 3rd. Drag radial or similar would have been my thinking for grip.
Yeah I know, it will happen in time, taking it in strides.
