you know it gives me a sense of pride like all the folks who build something you put your heart and soul into so it feels great when your peers approve of it

new pullet ordered 2.625 dia this should put the boost up to what i want or close as i am seeing about 6 pounds with a 3 inch the problem is that the stock audi crank pulley is only about 6.250 where the stock Shelby GT500 is 7.5 inch

today i made the throttle cable bracket it came out nice but i dint have the cell phone with me to take some pitchers i will do that tomorrow i should be able to drive it over to the other bay and put it on the lift so i can do a few things like tie the battery cable up and secure the brake line that rums to the rear and do the exhaust hangers all just minor things but need doing . i am not sure if i want to use the rear quarter with rockers i don't think they are built by V8 Archie but they need work i hope i can get the nose to fit better than i could on the last car as it was low in spots compared to the hood and was not really that impressed with the fit of it for what i paid for it

well i have learned that i need more belt wrap on the blower pulley and i am going to send out the pulley to have it carbon coated from carbinite Metal coating it makes the belt wear faster but it gives grip due to the rough surface there web site http://carbinite.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
