    I made a rollbar for my Fox in college. It was pretty cool but took a long time since it was my first try at something like that. I never got to put it in my car.

    I actually have a question too. How do you paint it once it's in the car? I mean it's so close to the headliner and whatnot.

    Once it's done done with the glide and 9" rear end, we are hoping to see an 8 second pass out of it.

    It's painted after the complete welds are done and then slide up through the floorboards to the fit area. Everything is dropped down prior.

    Car has been fired up now for it's second heat cycle on new motor. 3 more heat cycles and we'll be strapping it down on the dyno for some POWER!!!!!!

    This car will not be tuned on pump gas. It will be tuned on SHELL Racing Fuel URT 115 Octane.


    Here are some pictures.
    Once everything is 100% complete, I'll be taking the car over to a local spot for a real photoshoot with my top notch equipment. So please bare the cell phone pics for now. LOL

    Two things.. Did you make the intake in house and what exactly is a break in procedure? Some people say drive a car normally and some just drive the piss out of a car right after it's done. Your insight, and is there a difference between a break in for a race car and a street car?

    The intake manifold is a custom piece through Hellion Power Systems. They make them there. Not a cheap piece, but it's nice.

    As for break in. We do 5-6 heat cycles before strapping it on the dyno. Once on the dyno, we do a few miles worth of rolling on there. Make sure there are no noises with any of the components. Then we do a step test through the RPM range from idle to redline. Once that is all complete, we then begin our WOT tuning. Then we'll take the car onto the street and datalog it while driving on street conditions. Once all that is complete, we'll then turn the car over to the owner and let him go beat the snot out of it.

    WOW!!! That is an impressive looking machine. Is it going to be driven on the street at all? Just wondering with that low location of those turbos. I was also curious as to where they were....now I know. Great build!

    This kit comes with a cover shield that blocks water from splashing up onto the turbos. However, this particular car won't have to worry about it b/c it will never see rain again. Limited street use and if it looks like rain, it won't be driven.
