    I went ahead and created a site so I have one place for all the pictures videos and news. I'll still keep this thread up to date, but figured a site would help.
    Right now there is not much there. I'll probably get it up to date this weekend.

    So much debating now!!!! Do I go for 550rwhp n/a with a huge shot of NOS since I can do it now, or wait what will seem forever and just get the motor forged for now! UGH

    Truthfully, that's where I'm at. I LOVE an N/A car. But....Ken's Twin set up is SOO B.A.!!!! Decisions decisions. Maybe I'll get another car! Maybe a Black one, or Grabber Blue. OR....get two more. Keep my Race Red stock, Make a Grabber Blue one N/A, and Get a White one and Twin Turbo it. All American driveway and I can choose which one to drive that suits my tastes for that day!!! LOL Ahh...pipe dreams!

    Thanks guys. Not because it's my setup, but if you don't wait my guess is you might be disappointed.
    Site is up and has most of the current info and pics. If you guys could check it out and let me know if it all looks ok, that would be great.

    I'm loving the standing mile aspect of this build. Im definitely willing to wait if this kit comes to fruition.

    That's sweet. Year end bonus will start the built motor and hopefully next years will be put toward your kit.

    Sounds like a good plan!

    Got the intercooler and cold side finalized today. Moved the MAF down to the outlet of the intercooler in 3.5" tubing. It also allowed us to clean up the engine bay and make the baddest looking engine bay even better. Here are some pics.

    This setup will now be taken off this car and installed on Joe Coffeeman's Procharged car. We have a track rental this Sunday and it will provide a good back to back test on this setup.

    Excellent! Glad to see updates! Did anything really change besides the maf location?

    While we're on the topic(sort of), the heat exchanger you used on Lund's car was going to be an upgrade right? Will the standard one still sit down and fill in the open lower grill area like that one?

    The piping from the throttle body to the intercooler is all new. The old piping was more of an s shape and had 2 connections in the engine bay (where the maf pipe was). It now hugs the radiator tighter.

    Yes, the standard heat exchanger will be in the same location.

    Wow talk about quick response lol...Yeah you're right, I see the difference with no couplers and stuff there. Much improved!

    Sounds good, just wanted to check :beer:

    Ive spent the last 2-days reading and staring at pics of this. It gets me more stirred up then any other kick butt mod I have ever done. Time to sell a hot rod for a GT. Any Idea when a kit my be offered? 6months,12months?. Curious for the simple fact of how long I got to get the GT I want.

    Wife is gonna hate me! already working on accuiring a GT. I may just take the whole leap & not just get the car but go right to a stronger SB. Plan is to get ahold of a low mile used to help compensate cost of stronger Internals What the heck only live once. Been down the upgrade as it breaks road to many times already, This kit has me ready to jump all the way in from the start.

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments, we are really excited about the car. I won't be making anymore updates on the project in this thread but I will everywhere else! Thanks for the support!

    No. I don't see any reason to close it. People can still discuss it

    Any updates on this Ken ?
    I'm thinking of going this route towards the end of this year...
    Any idea when it might be out? and what would be a ball park estimate of what it'd cost?
