Jayson @ MTI - "You realize within like 2 seconds you guys are freezing the MAF with that dry kit mounted there!" (Nozzle came up at the bottom of the MTI Cold Air where the MAF is)

Me - "Will it blow up if we continue to spray?"

Jayson - "No because I have it dumbed down but it's just not a good idea."

Me and Matt - "Not blowing up is the only thing we cared on what you just said"

408rwhp on motor ... 630rwhp on a BIG dry kit... When the 427 was put together the took apart the stock motor and Cam pushed the pistons out with his fingers once the crank was out. LOL!

I know Jayson misses us ;)

Shit youngsters, those aren't the O.G. LS1 mods.

-Spark plug brand and gap debates circa Jan 1998 on LS1.com
-Resistor in IAT mod
-Short-belt mod
-Fernco plumbing coupler on the factory airbox
-Dremel ported MAF's
-Grinding calipers to fit 15" wheels
-HPP3 tuning like a mofo
-Cutting the EGT tube off
-Replacing ball-socket flange on MAC headers with collectors
-Custom made Y-pipes
-Ported factory throttle bodies with "knife edged" blades and shaft.

That was only 14 years ago. Shit. Most of these current owners were 2 yrs old.

TR5 vs TR55 son!

Actually about a year ago mom got on a cleaning spree with the help of Matt and I in her garage. I think we found 2x Dremeled MAF housings LOL!

I had the Pabon built Y-Pipe on my car until I sold it.

The Fernco got me laughing because when we put the fogger on Mike and Nick had a piece silicone piece that went there. Well last final put together we had just swapped a few pieces out and I couldn't find the silicone so at like 2am Zac managed to get the stock accordion to fit over the FAST 90MM TB and SLP Airlid (larger than the older style lids, for the new LSx'ers). I think I was the first stock accordion in the 8's! LOL!
