Haha what do you mean? How many HP would I be satisfied with? 1000whp boost only + my 200 hp nitrous shot would be nice

I've had projects held up for months for stupid things like connectors, rear end covers, flywheels, etc.

Just the nature of the beast.. always waiting on someone/something... often times the shop has their hands tied behind their back waiting on some of the simplest parts.

I've waited 2 and a half years for a shift knob.. still haven't received it. Thanks UUC! Thankfully that hasn't held the car back from anything.

That's good to know! We're excited to see what this thing can really do.

40+ psi and a 200 shot of nitrous can do some damage!!

Car will be on the dyno tomorrow or friday... hopefully the FSR manifold is not a TOTAL let down as its been for me so far due to the fact I cant run a QSV and now I am told FSR says you have to run solid motor mounts because the manifold is very close to hitting the body, literally this close || lol... I wish I was told this BEFORE they sent the manifold to SP as I HATE the hpf solid motor mounts.

Tom...I have solid motor mounts and my hate is associated with the exhaust vibrations...perhaps your anger needs to be transferred lol?

Looking forward to the results!

Honestly even Larry at SP and Tim at fall line both have first hand experience with my car and there's no way this is exhaust related... There's an insane amount of vibration from under my front seat area, cruising on the hiway anyway faster than 160km and it feels like one of those massage chairs at the mall, both passenger and driver side.. Also the wheels feel like there going to fall off and I had the balance checked 3x! At first I thought the custom 1 pc drive shaft was the problem, had the 1 pc drive shaft taken off and Larry says the vibrations are still there...

Solid motor mounts, 2 years and going.. been through a million iterations with my car.. solid everything.. the only time it felt like what you're describing is after I switched to a 1 piece drive shaft. Dallas does that at all sound like what you experienced in my car when we drove from Portland to Vegas? How about you Kenton? I'm pretty sure something else is at play tom, that's definitely not the solid motor mounts.. infact the solid motor mounts are generally LESS noticeable once I'm moving.
