Thanks.
Trying to get this car done before the years out.
Waiting on parts is the killer. I've been waiting on my intake manifold for months.
It has to be a custom unit because nobody makes one for a Whipple screw type supercharger on a 2nd Generation Hemi with SMPI injection.
Hogans Intakes in North Carolina does works of art when it comes to these intakes.
Unfortunately, they are very busy making all kinds of intake manifolds for all types of clients.
I started on the bottom of the list last October. I'm now at the top of the list. With the shipping label now "created".
This piece is holding up the final mocking up of the engine. To make sure things fit right for the final body work.

No. The price represents the advanced technology and aesthetics, which are what interest me more. You can appreciate the (state of the) art without buying it. Also, they go fast. 

I do have a virtual garage: ;)

Go figure....


If this could get up to 100 mph on the expressway, I could survive driving in Texas.
