    I am VERY pleased with this car! It does as it was advertised, a luxury drag car. Bill was great to deal with during the purchasing process as well.

    The track opens in two Fridays, but It will probably still be crappy weather around here. I bought a season pass though, so look for some action videos!

    I remember some of you were unsure about the motor build and some other things. I'm new to this caliber of car and will take your criticism good or bad into consideration. I'm not going for any world records, I want the car to be properly done and reliable at the moment.

    Re: I bought one!

    Thanks! The P.O. figured it between 5 and 550 to the wheels. I will hit up the somewhat local (near work) performance shop when they have a dyno day this summer. Running 5.5lbs of boost currently and don't plan to change the pulley anytime soon, but we'll see how confident I am after I hit the track a few times.

    A bag of sand, her breasts felt like a bag of sand, lol. What do you mean by gravel?

    ----------

    Oh, I get it, the sound the car makes haha. It's super loud too. The first time I heard it start in person I jumped. Fortunately it's a cadillac in addition to the added sound deadening material in the floor, when the doors close, comfortably quiet.

    Re: I bought one!

    Congrats on your purchase! Quite the build sheet, I don't even want to think about the $$$$$ figure. It does sound a little rough like it has cutouts open or something. Either way I'm sure it is a beast, enjoy. You going to keep that big ass tach in there?

    Re: I bought one!

    Thanks carlson. straight thru exhaust. I will keep the tach around for now, it adds to the ridiculousness of the car. It is a little intrusive, but it doesn't bother me.

    Re: I bought one!

    Quite a setup.

    You're gonna get dissatisfied with that 5.5 psi real fast and be looking at eight-rib over-drive crank pulleys and 2.6" drive pulleys before you know it.

    Is that a code on your dash?

    Re: I bought one!

    If this is the car I think it was, then everyone was confused in regards to the IAT temp sensor location. You might want to research that, OP

    My next door neighbor sure does, he can't wait for a drive in it! I brought it home around 11pm and left it run while I was shuffling cars, if they weren't already awake, they sure would have been when I fired it up if I had shut it off lol.

    It puts a smile on my face at idle, I sure hope I don't get tired of a little boost too quickly. And yes, that is a CEL, it's because there is no maf.

    I haven't opened the air box yet, but as far as I know about cars without mafs they don't run IATs either. I'm running a Maf translator on a Galant VR4 without an IAT. The only downside I know of is that I may have to change up my tune if the weather changes too much. I surely don't know everything though, so If you have any info to add, I'm all ears.
