    If only you knew some sort of fab...man...HRMMMM...

    @captdistraction did that on his build and can provide some pics. The Petersen can has a drain fitting already threaded. Mine does that too, but not as much. I'll have to inspect what's in mine after the shakedown day soon.

    Dig the bead-rolling on those boxing surfaces. Did you end up ditching the supercharger?

    @Fabman I am using the Moroso 10-quart steel pan, filled to 12 quarts.

    Man this sucks. Put that car in the corner and focus on relaxing for a bit...come back to it later if you feel like it. I have a feeling based on your past experience with racing that eventually you will return.

    That blows. :-/ Junkyard take-out might be a good option.Check out www.thepartsfarm.com , they offer a lot of turn-key engine/management/fuel system packages from wrecked cars.

    I have not seen those before. Would be interesting to see if it works as well as a cool shirt. The system volume looks much smaller. But the price is also much smaller. Either way--it will absolutely be better than nothing.

    Congrats on the logbook. What's with The Scarlet Letter? Wife getting jealous?

    Wow that looks great--nice routing of all the lines. I am taking notes over here...

    I am going to have to come back and read that sermon later.

    All that crap looks pretty good to me! What is the drip tube for in the last photo? Creep up on those corners with your new setup. I already learned the hard way that you can't alter physics even with a giant brake kit.

    What time does it get to my house?

    Sal--call Paul / Brian at Paul's Automotive Engineering. They may be able to offer you something better at a competitive price. http://www.paulsautomotiveengineering.com/I don't know too much about the kit in that link other than that the rotors are smaller than even OEM Boss/GT500 Brembos...

    Sal: Sorry to hear that the Baers continue to be an issue. If you can get your hands on a Brembo 14 or 15" pro kit, you will have plenty of RELIABLE brake.Next option would be to go for the S550 PP brake conversion (less cost but not competition-tested in PWC/IMSA).

    LOL...oh well :) I hope your tires weren't affected.

    Time to start diagnosing the understeer issue?

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Sideways a little through T5 :)

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Yeah that would make for a great cutting template and drill guide for a non-clear version. A+

    Excited to see the finished product!

    Wtf happened to your wheel studs?!

    lol.I like that font--what is it?

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Probably not likely with that fuel cell back there
  23. ArizonaBOSS

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Oh ok. Fuel cell it is!
  24. ArizonaBOSS

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Maybe if it's that expensive and that much work, time to switch to a Coyote/Boss/5.2 setup?

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Oh man, I missed some good stuff in here! That AJ Hartman wing should be great--and welcome to the Big Wang Gang :)The question that will naturally come next is will you be able to achieve aero balance--but with the trackspec vents and front splitter I think you will be able to get it figured...

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Sal, what are those reinforced clear tubes down on the underside of the car? Fuel venting? I see you have your EVAP deleted (as do I).

    Can't wait to see those 335s mounted up and under the flares. Should be an AMAZING amount of grip. I'm jealous.
