DUDE.....That hood is amazing! Congrats on getting one, I have heard numerous times that those hoods are rare as hens teeth. I do wonder though, does this mean the subie style one you got will soon be for sale? :D

my first dyno pulls will be done on the 15th of may.... i am going to new era performance in rochester. it is a dynojet dyno a friend of mine and i are going. he just bought a c6 vette with a supercharger on it. he is going to go get a full tune. i am just going to go for a few pulls.

this will be a "street" dyno setup.. only 15psi...
(i would like to go back up on the 25psi setup later)

anyone want to take some guesses on what i will put out?

alright. i did a few wot pulls list past week in 4th gear... i was shocked how fast this car got to well over 120 (think about it, haha)

i was just monitoring my afrs at wot in that gear... they are setting farly good at 11.2... i know it is rich but i am ok with it. these pulls on tuesday are not for MAX power. just a safe daily tune.... i am hoping to see 300whp. if so i am happy with the car for a daily tune/safe tune...
