Oh yes, she's a beauty. I'd like to see somewhere around 4-450hp out of her after some loving.
Congratulations on the update/progress. Are the wheel lips polished stainless, aluminum, or some other metal?Updates and great news abound!
I was advised last week that Jonathan was able to source the tri-ys for my car. So she should be pretty sweet with the goodies he's putting in.
I also heard from the wheel builder last night, my final 6.5" barrels have arrived! They'll be going in to the next powder coating batch and hopefully be at my door soon.
Oh man I can't wait.
Gracias.Congratulations on the update/progress. Are the wheel lips polished stainless, aluminum, or some other metal?
Also, you can get the Tri-Ys and downpipes coated to minimize heat in the engine bay as well as prolong their condition (cast iron rust removed prior to coating), and maximize performance. I took Malcolm's recommendation and sent them to SwainTech in NY state. If you go that route, you guys will be responsible for packing/shipping, and they return the newly pristine items in the same packing material you sent them in.
Yikes, that's eyebrow raising. Such a departure from any other mention I've ever read of the shop. In fact, this would be the sole example I've ever known of where Jonathan didn't hit 100%. Huh.
then read what was found once another shop opened it up
