    Posting this for a customer, he doesn't post. Built shortblock, stock heads/cams, triple return fuel set up. The Kmember came in yesterday, so the car is coming along nicely.

    Damn, a lot less clutter than an IRS :D lol but nice build! So the guy didnt want to upgrade to a 26 spline input shaft...but is wanting to run twin turbos with nitrous?! This guy is just stupid.

    Very nice build! :beer:

    Ok what a sec...
    Fore tripple return fuel system Check
    Solid rear Check
    twin turbo Check
    twin disk clutch Check
    Nitrous Check
    Built engine Check

    But no upgraded input shaft. :bored:

    Plus you had the tranny apart for the TOB sleeve so whats another couple hundred bucks for the 26 spline input shaft. Now if the owner wants it upgraded it not going to work with that clutch setup. Not the area I would have cut a corner on when the rest of the car is built so well. I would have went with the tripple hat and only ran 2 pumps and got the input shaft upgraded if I ran out of money.

    Oh my head hurts!!

    I would have added 150 bucks somewhere in the ticket, and put the 26 spline shaft in as a "free upgrade".. ;) Seriously.. The first time he launches the car on sticky tires, it's going to wrench the input shaft right in two!

    Just need to finish up the little odds and ends now. It will need some down pipes made, the used ones it came with are not even close.
