How's this going? I just went back to some previous PMs on r3v and remembered what an inspiration your first build was to me -- this should be fantastic too

its amazing to me how long ago that was!, and thank god i made that thread, ive forgotten half of it, lots of pics to refer back to.

build is going well, she fired up, horrible idle thanks to the cams lol, my mechanic is going to begin the supercharger install now, and ive got a TRM tuning base remote tune chip on its way. it will be going to a dyno in detroit area for data to properly tweek the tune, and then i should be good to go.

ive also aquired these not to long ago, finally found exactly what i was looking for 17x8.5, 17x9.5 ET 13,16, redrilled/rebuilt




there will be no streaching going on here...

How rough did it run? I'm thinking it shouldn't be too bad. IIRC the VAC supercharger cams consist of one stock s52 intake cam and one schrick 256* exhaust cam.

However, in for the dyno results/numbers!!

idle actually is pretty good, but it just shuts off after 10 minutes
