    Here is an update guys. The car is running awesome, i put an electric vaccume pump on it to control some oil seal problems and it worked out well. I took it to the track last night, it was very busy, first pass was just a sunday cruise to make sure all would be well at 100+ mph at the top end. Second pass was best of the night....and had to let off twice to keep it in my lane 11.66 @ 118mph the third pass was an 11.90 @ 118mph again letting off when shifting into second. Fourth pass got me booted off the track......messed with timing a bit, really woke it up and I was off the throttle three times and then just gave up.....track owner said i was done for the night because he said he could see both my doors (standing at starting line) as i was loosing it. 13.39@ 84mph I'm sure it has an easy 10 second pass in it (all this at only 9lbs of boost on pump gas!) but i think my rear suspension is not helping my cause. I must say......i love boost!

    On a side note....i don't think my C5 tranny is long for this world, the thing doesn't want to shift into third and i have to let up on the throttle a bit the get it to shift. Guess i know what my winter project will be!
