What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

Next will be an Eaton M62 supercharger, 60lb injectors and a tune

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

In the beginning it was all show an no go, as time progressed I got tired of the show scene and slowly de-molded a few appearances and began the slow process of engine mods starting with an intake and header exhaust setup. Followed by poly mounts and upgraded throttle body. It’s been interesting so far!

Any Shout Outs?

Shout out to the organizers of local car show events!! Without there enthusiastic input none of us would be here to show our talent and what we are capable of as automobile enthusiasts! And of course my team!
