I voted low13 since I have no idea what cam and heads it will be running. Make me wrong and run a 12 flat. Everybody thinks its easy to run a mid 13 till they try it. Speed cost money how fast do you want to go?

What....no selection for 10's? :confused:
I do not believe anything coming out of area 51 would ever run as slow as the selections Manny has chosen. Whats up with only 2 packets of sweetnlow? Thats not showing much confidence on your part Manny. Why not a gallon of the nasty stuff? :p :p

Sorry Guys! I talked to a young lady at HP's main office and she informed me that ,"Jimmy" who is over the Thunderbird project, is just getting back into town after going after a new dyno machine. I decided to just wait until next week before I start annoying them again. :rolleyes:
Hopefully we will have some updates this upcoming week. I am beginning to think i'm the most patient dude on this side of hell. :(

For all the time they are taking ,I dont get it? I would have a hard time doing business with someone that took a ton of my money and then I have to beg them to work on my car. They may be good they may even be the best. The point is there are a lot of good companies out there that would love to tackle a project like this. Lots of imports are running some awesome turbo setups. I would bet a lot of them are all custom built. I hope it all works out for you, Patients in a vurtue to a point.

Manny, I would have taken the SC off and raced the inverted turd without a power adder. :p
After all, it's been in the works longer than the turbo right!? :confused:

Thanks Tim,
I don't think many people acknowlege the patience I am having to endure. XR7 Dave once acknowledged me for being patient. It may sound funny, but I made a promise to you guys and that is the only reason that I have not backed out and spent this money on my wife's 2K Mustang GT. I know not everyone is interested in a turbo option, but for those of you that are rooting for me I hang in there. :cool:
I can't back out now with Manny thumbing his nose at me. :D :D :D

Im just getting tired of waiting my sc will be blown up before your done.
and inverted turd has been done for long time over a yr . I just dont use it .

have many of them most junked . with the fmic and other projects out there there is no need for a inverted why take a chance at a water leak and hydro lock.

maybe with a m112 but that way off for me dont have tiome to work on any projects have three jobs and dont have time to mess with the sc.

seriusly best wishes on it I dont even feel like talking trash about the turbo setup ive been for so long am tired of it. but hey while your waiting Im driving.

I hear ya Manny! I enjoy cutting up with you man! Like I said before, it's more fun than cable. :D We will be going on about this when we are old and gray. In fact, i'm already there. :(

Thats ok because I am planning on an inverted m112 blower feed by twin tubbos. I will have the heads welded on. All jokeing aside I like the clean look of Mannys inverted blower and the air to water inter is way cool too. I would think it will be worth the wait. I couldnt do it cause I am a crabby old man and the first sign of the old jerk around and I would be on the phone. It seems like now days the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Manny how about an inverted A.R. Now thatwould be something else!

The other turbo S.C. is in the samr placr yhr Loch Ness monster and Bigfoot are. Dont worry Frank you are the first that dares to be differant. I think you will realy like it when its done. How fast it will be is anybodys guess. Iam sure that will only be a srart on the engine. Anybody that dosent think it will run shouls take a ride in a stock Buick G.N.

I agree with that %100 Tim. It is pretty cheap of someone to cry "wolf" when I have gone without my car and cash for a freaken year. I have made a sacrifice here and there is no secrecy necessary. You are also right about the Buick G.N's! They have been kicking A$$ and taking names on the track and stoplight's for years, so the recipe is an old one. :) There are stock-blocked Buick G.N.'s running ten's, so why the hell can't we get a 12 second Supercoupe is anyone's guess. :rolleyes:

Frank,

You will be the only active SCCOA member with a turbo SC...And by far the best engineered one probably anywhere as far as a kit is concerned...Now once you get yer cam and heads.....Watch out!

Also I was reffering to my inverted autorotor setup...Where ya been!

Randy I have to give respect where its due. I will be happy when I can run with some of the G.N.s that run at the local track. I would love to ride in a fast turbo-coupe. I almost bought a perfect black low mile one a few months back. I kind of mentioned it to my wife. She gave me a look that made my blood run cold. I always liked the body style. Even a 4 banger can run real fast with the right parts. I had a Ford fairmount with a 4 banger and some mods, it was really fast and fun to drive.
