Nice! Cool pics!

Looking forward to seeing more about this car, including dyno and track results of course.

Have fun with it!

WOW!! That would be nice. Waiting for some performance stats. Why would anyone pull a brand new engine out and replace it?? Whats in the new engine?? Guess the warranty is gone. I'm afraid to change the exhaust on mine for fear they will cancel the Warranty.
