Looks good Dan.

Do I spy some Mickey Pros there I got a set for my ride too. Hard to believe they got a DOT stamp, but at the same time, they say "Not for street use" or whatever on the side, lol

yeah I had 12" long 5" diameter flowmaster bullet on the car before that came from Fireballs old car. When I removed it the insides were falling apart so I just decided to scrap it for now. IF the car is too loud I will add something later.

I also made the downpipe into a few more pieces so that it is easier to remove and put just a turn down on next to the trans for track days

It was od seeing you too lol.

Thanks for the compliment... the car is definitely fun, as I surprised an R6 getting on an on-ramp. You're making great progress on your car, and would have loved to get a ride in it, but I'll take a rain-check on that for another time.

Well I haven't updated much lately cause I have been busy with side work. Rebuilding a LS1 that bent a rod. Getting some upgrades along the way.

I did manage to get most of my wiring done for the car. I also was able to run the lines for the ice water tank. I am hoping to be able to start doing some tuning in the next week.

Rewired my fan and water pump. (So they are controlled by both the PCM and a dash switch. And wiring up the ice tank pump so that it is controlled by a dash switch for the track and a hobs switch for street driving

So factory they turned on by PCM the past 2 years they turned on by PCM and a switch on the dash.

I wired it up this year that they are still controlled by PCM and 1 switch on the dash will turn fan and water pump on. (water pump is all turned on when fuel pump is running)
