HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

First off I have to thank all the members on this board for the excellent info on here! Then, Eric at TPC for answering all the minor questions (about 100 emails!) I had along the way
My car started out as an E class PCA racer, ran it for 2 seasons, then switched to 18 x 10's and 285's all around. The engine let go the last event of 2011! Perfect time for an LS1

I feel a "win" in the future.


Nice exhaust welding and rims by the way.

Looks fast! What's the unit you have in the metal shielding on the passenger side of the engine bay? Is that an oil pressure accumulator?

That is a gravel guard I made up for the remote oil filter, while still leaving easy access to remove the oil filter. With the hydorboost and all the related lines, I couldn't find a good way to run the oil lines on the driver's side.
The bat wing wasn't on for that pic, but I use it. I'm going to make a front splitter, and I've always wanted a rear wing - so i think a plexiglass hatch and wing are in order when I get the splitter made up.
I don't run in any class, just going for the DE trophy right now! I may get into NASA since they are starting to make a good presence here in the midwest. I'm a PCA instructor - I just do this for fun Cool

Updated pic with my 2014 setup
Have had 2 great seasons with NASA central running TT2. Finally sitting at the right end of my power to weight after a cam install over the winter.

I'll make a short video when I have time. Last year, I ditched the super quiet dynomax ultraflo for a Daytona prototype tested Aero turbine muffler. I am very happy with the sound of the new muffler. Unfortunately, the only dyno results I have are after the LS6 maifold and ASA cam install; good for about 35 whp and 65wtq gains total
