Although a sloppy cure for that is to use nitrous off the line hahaha.
i will look into them.

The plan was wait until eBay had another 15% off coupon and pick up a 1.10 ar t4 flanged s475.

This is how the inside of the car is sitting right now. Man I hate scraping sound deadening... dropping the car off Tuesday to have the cage installed.

I have to pull the dash and fuel cell still but I may wait until I load it on the trailer to do that. I have a black dash that will be goin back in it

Dammmmmnnn dude! I wish I wouldve came across this thread before LS fest, my brother and I wouldve liked to meet you and see this car. (im the one who just asked you about the GT45 on youtube)

Was this your first time racing at LS fest? Ive been driving my turbo truck there for the past 4 years, last year was the first time for me to actually race down there.

Awesome! Honestly I enjoyed racing but at the same time I missed so much compared to just spectating, the weather didnt help much either :/

The car is a v6...2000 model I believe.

Thanks man, I just made a couple more videos of the truck public so you can see them listed now.

THATS SICK! Can I ask what you paid to get it put in? and if you know the steps to get it certified I'd love to hear that too.

total install was $950 and I had him add the window net and he installed my Scott rod package tray since my rear bars pass threw it.

i called last night to reserve my spot to have it certed Feb 2nd. Itís a shop local to me that is having a cert day and has a nhra inspector there. Iíve never had a cage certed but Iíll take it to their shop and I think they mainly look at welds and check tube thickness

Cage is painted, used rustolum semi gloss black rolled/brushed on with foam rollers. Turned out pretty good.

Also got my heater box tore out. Hoping when all said and done this car is right at 3000lbs with the cage.




My 10 gallon fuel cell should be here today. Hoping to get it thrown in and the dash this week if I can get over this cold. I’ve been eyeing these eBay China 7875 turbos for $320 and come with a 2yr warranty. Also looking at those China s475’s for a little over $400 like swapstang reccomended. Very up in the air about my turbo still. If I can hit 650whp with this gt45 (I’ve seen done on a few builds) I’ll stay with it.

If and when you decide to do one lmk. I bought their dash template and can make a copy for you. Itís an extra $50 if you decide to buy threw them.

Got my cage certed this past weekend. 8.50 legal whoohooo!! Grabbed a pair of MT et front runners and got them thrown on and also flipped my intercooler over so I can run my fog light bezels in my bumper. Also gets that intercooler pipe even further away from my down pipe so it’s a win win
