Did you do anything about the airbag? A guage coming at your face at 200mph wouldn't be fun.
I'm in love with the car though. Looks great.

Yes, they are HRE's. Brent and Drew just went out and did some filming of the V doing burn-outs. We'll post it up when we get a chance. Bob

Can't wait for the videos.

Whats the deal with the gauges? How do the side curtain airbags work with the gauges overthem?

Very nice V, but it would go faster and have more HP if it were blk on blk

Still i bet it is one hell of a ride once the tires hook up.

I'm not a big centrifugal supercharger fan, but I'm really jealous of the rearend swap, and I like those subframe connectors.

I dont know were or how the obtained theirs but here is a single I've been working on. Originally it was for my car but his one is more than likely sold. I'm going to try and buy a few more pillars to make a twin and triple pod. I personally want a triple as long as I can keep it clean. If not, the single or maybe a twin would be fine with me as well.

This V made 815 on a different chassis dyno, I think we'd see 900 rwhp if we upped the boost. The F-1A blower on my 408 cid Camaro is making 19 psi, so we have quite a bit of room to grow with this V. We're also using a bone stock LS2 intake manifold on this V, I'll bet that the new FAST 92mm intake manifold would make quite a difference. Bob

The airbag is not in the a pillar. They are behind the headliner just over the door.

Since we're using a bone stock LS2 intake manifold, which has proven to be nothing to write home about, I wonder how much more horsepower we would see with the above intake manifold? Bob

Thanks, Bob

An LS6 intake flows better than the LS2 even though its only 78mm. Since it seems you spared no expense on this vehicle, I would have a sheetmetal intake fabed that still fits under the hood. With as much boost as your running, I dont know I would even go the fast 92 route but it would without a doubt improve your numbers over the LS2. I do believe there are guys with more boost running the fast intakes though.

One like this



Precision MetalCraft's line of sheetmetal intake manifolds can take your LS1, LS2, LS7, or L92 to the next level. A raised 3-inch profile and one-piece tapered runners with integral velocity stacks (for smooth airflow transition) offer significant improvement over the factory piece. Billet mounting flanges have factory-style O-ring grooves for a great seal, and a bottom-mounted fitting plate includes one 1/4-inch NPT and three 1/8-inch NPT female fittings for additional lines. Billet fuel rails are included and tapped to accept -8 fuel lines and either factory or aftermarket injectors. Each intake is available with either a 75mm or 90mm throttle-body opening, and retails for $2,250.
