You are my idol and hero! How do you plan to hook up that kind of power? What suspension mods are you doing?

Power will be limited in first gear and on take off. Just like i did to make it so he had a 1.4~ 60ft off idle last time.. I hope.... It is going to be a crazy week build as long as all the parts come in time and i get all the extra stuff done. It has to be a in and out in a few day setup so ill be busy busy for a few days when the car gets dropped off. Motor is set to handle 1400hp, so at 1000 hp with the juice it should get interesting. Hopefully it wont take much juice.

Good for you, Curtis. Definitely a two thumbs up!

However one question. The tranny?, because as the saying goes, "the chain is no stronger than the weakest link!"

:bows: And I thought you were going all out. :) Good luck with the build. Hopefully everything goes smooth and the parts are there. I think you might have the first V to hit Mach 6.

Thanks guys. The tranny is next. Jesse has already discussed this with me. I hope to get a few passes before it goes out. We will just have to beef it up and see how long it holds.

Not sure just yet. I will try it with stock suspension and see what happens.
Keeping your V as your daily driver was/is one of your previously stated priorities. Has that changed, or do you think that this build will allow nice mellow operations when wanted?

Congrats Curtis! Sounds like it's going to be a great build. Good luck!

It will still be driven every day. It should even get more gas mileage once broken in. My exact build in my older car gets high 20s. It will just be smooth power all the way thru the rpms when he wants it. When the valve is open there is no boost so it just acts like a calm stock motor. Just as before. But stronger.
