The Story

Daily driver/project-(20k+ miles/year) My goal is to build a reliable and efficient vehicle that also happen to have 350 hp/tq at the wheels. Living in Alaska and use the car year round. So far It's seen temperatures as low as -50 F and used with up to 10 inches of snow on the ground. Having a backup vehicle now, I plan on making the car lighter while maintaining as much of the stock interior as possible. I will attempt to reduce as much rotational mass as possible before hacking away at any unnecessary components. Currently sitting around 380hp (@motor) when calculating airflow, with my FIC 750cc injectors being pushed to 90% at around 18 psi. I will need to do some porting of the WG to hopefully allow me to keep the car at 15 psi where the car can be fun and reliable. Fuel in the area is terrible, with 90 Oct being the highest. Able to average 26 mpg during the summer, dropping to 20 mpg in the winter. I'm terrible at documenting the build process but more information can be found on the car at the below link. http://www.dirtyevo.com/showthread.php?t=1543

I'm pretty sure I know your Dad, Shawn. Was this his old car?

[]Matthew Jewett

He still has his. It's been sitting in his garage for about 10 years; hopeing to see it run soon.

[]Ed Dobrzyn

Awesome! I'm glad to see he hasn't given up on it.
