    I have been talking with Sean , your car is looking great .
    We were the ones to first do the power upgrade from the stock GT4 engine , did the longtube headers first and then the intake and throttle body at the end of last season.
    Charles at Roush Yates did the ECU reprogram and we have been sending him the data and they have been making changes on the calibration.
    I think you will be very happy with the car .
    Just to answer some of the questions on lap times our car with the upgraded engine did a 1:08.6 at Portland International Raceway (no chicane)
    Pacific Raceways with just the longtube headers last year I qualified at a 1:24.6 .

    SWEEEEET. If I could like this post (and the associated pictures) twice, I would!

    Sean and the Multimatic guys have been great to work with. I am really really looking forward to this car, and to turning her loose on my local tracks of Sonoma Raceway and Laguna Seca.

    I just noticed Kooks headers, We had a set of those crack on our car and another Endurance team (Elgin Racing) did as well. So keep an eye on them for the endurance events!

    We ended up using American Racing headers and have not had any issues

    Is that a 4-4-2 Cutlass I see back there, or is it a W30 Regal?

    Tim,

    GREAT pic! We met a couple of years ago, when Howie S took me over to your garage...

    Hows the track on Vancouver Island?

    Tom.

    Ben

    You going to join us for SAAC-43 at Sonoma first weekend in August.

    3 days of open track, on Friday, we are running a half day with the Nascar config as that allows us a quicker changeover for drag racing in the afternoon. Then on Saturday and Sunday we are running the traditional road course with carousel back in play.

    We'd love to see you out there!

    Man, I just got into tracking and have a 98 cobra, this is really giving me inspiration and goals to someday have setups like I see in here. Beautiful machines guys!

    Ben, really enjoying seeing the build of your car and love reading all about it. Thank you for sharing with us!

    Would you believe I'll be racing in AER at Calabogie that weekend? Darn. I really would have liked to go to the SAAC event.
