I keep coming back over and over to this thread to drool over the level of craftsmanship... the welds on the fuel lines and exhaust,


And the wheels...gotta love the gold centers on a black car.

I am a sucker for any wide tires..they look like steam roller sections..my Lord, 345mm!

I have a pretty good idea the best is to come...the custom covered Recaros. I cant wait.

Tom does CCWs are SICK SICK SICK! But then again, I am bias!
The Flex Fuel sensor ties into the return side of the fuel system. It goes from the fuel rail return, to the fuel pressure regulator, to the FF sensor, and back to the tank.

It's somewhat risky to post up all the details of custom builds like this, because people can very easily critisize part "X", and how you mounted part "Y". Thanks for sharing such detailed pictures, it gives ideas to the rest of us amateurs.

Car looks great so far!

Thanks everyone for there positive comments, I agree with you PEI especially with the drama we have had on fanatics for the last while (let's keep that out of my thread please)

Bdave the car is going to be matte white and it's currently sparkling graphite metalic which is a gunmetalish look but I can see why you think from the pics the car is black

Gold rims look great with ANY color, IMO. Works just fine with a white body too!

I could hardly go anywhere and guys would compliment my gold centered forged wheels with the big lip in the rears.

Nothing major, just ran out of time. I have not even setup all of the sensors yet! I just turned the key to see if we had fuel pressure, any leaks and ignition and it started so that is a good thing!

Update..... finally got Tom's car on the dyno yesterday for some initial pulls. First pull was 550 @ 11 psi. I only got as high as 23-24 psi because it was smoking the tires on the dyno at that point. Still registered 760 rwhp but I bet it was actually closer to 800 if the tires actually hooked. I think I am going to have to raise up the back suspension so that we can put some weight in it without the tires rubbing. Will keep you all posted!
