    This happened to me when I first hooked mine up, corrected the issue and it worked like it was supposed to. The only thing I hated was that once I killed the motor with the switch I had to recalibrate/set the Zex nitrous management unit.....because I forgot to a couple of times.........

    Last two days were a success! The car is up and running great. I am going to try to get it to the alignment shop in the next few days so i can start putting miles on it before it hits the dyno on the 30th.

    Maiden voyage

    Got the power steering all lined out and took it for a short drive! Cut out going into boost but i know that is the tune which i will get worked out soon. The car drove very good for not being aligned but that will be remedied on tuesday morning. All in all everything is going well and i am really just waiting to dyno tune it.

    got a question on those wheels.

    Dave, what off set did you go with? and what size are they as well. I got to start thinking of wheels and I what to know what off set works.... Otherwise your car is looking "killer" great job, can't wait to see it at the shoot out....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    The pre grand finale. The end is near

    Well for those of you who didnt see on Facebook i took the car with Matt Haub after tuning it as best we could to another mustang dyno in Royalton il. After putting 30 of timing and no overdrive at wot the car made 504 hp and 485 tq. We had to make several runs to verify it because his dyno kept glitching out but it is what he says it is as Matt can verify. I am driving the car as much as possible and took it for a long drive today. For once i can say there is no reason i couldnt drive this car anywhere im as happy as can be. Its been a long 8 years but the end of the road is near.....

    Very impressive results Dave. Just a great job all around. I can't wait to see it up close this fall. You should be pretty proud of yourself and quite happy with the results!!

    Thanks Ira, honestly it is jyst really a huge weight iff my shoulders. I have always known my plan for this car and this was it i have justt had such terrible luck with stuff it has made me want to throw in the towel more times than i can count. The end result is pretty cool though i cant waite ti finish the rear suspension upgrade and the last thing i have to do is the trunk lid with the xenon spoiler. I am also going to go ahead and pull the nitrous iff of the car while im at it because it will never be used and it is just extra wiring and weight at this point.
