Here’s my slow seat time car for doing HPDE events and Time Attack. Mind you I DO NOT daily drive this car I may drive it every now and than to work but that's maybe a handful of times a year. It has basic suspension and engine mods, not looking to make any real power just a reliable weekend warrior. Its definitely a 20 footer car, looks good from 20 feet but anything up close you can see alot of dings, dents and overall wear and tare on this car. The car has been through hell and back and now is going through hell again. waiting to blow up the motor to do a swap. all mods were done by me.

Well here we are since yesterday 9-8-22 I got the car on the dyno and tuned. Made 188whp and 195wtq this is about the same I made way back in 2006 that was the last time I was on a dyno.

come to today I’m back at BIR for proving grounds 2 getting ready to race some HPDE, the tuner “tuned by Shawn” has been nothing but amazing getting me back on track for my last event of the year. We had to do some street runs to get some low throttle and first initial wot hits sorted out but it’s been coming along real well.

got to weight the car also sitting at 3100 with me in it and 2960 with out me with a full tank of gas, hoping I get some good runs in this weekend and will post up some videos when I get a chance.

Dude, you seriously only weigh 140lbs???

Btw, I like your hood...I assume its modded or does anyone sell one like that?
I assume the hood vents are not meant for heavy rain, correct???
Looking good!!!
I don't see a PS cooler tube...did you install an aftermarket one inside the bumper on the drivers side???
Or did you do a PS delete since your tracking it?
