Nice VF! Can't wait to see what #s it puts down supercharged. I'd think you'd need at least a T-Trim on that high revving V-8, or a YSi.


Bring that beast with you next time you come up to Vortech. A few of us would like a ride.

Nik, and Sean.

Hmmmm, nobody wants to answer me if that car is broken in already huh? I'm just asking because it would make sense to add FI to a car that is properly broken in don't you think???

Yes, that does make all the sense in the world! We will not be charging this car just yet. It is being used to mock up the system now.
