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.

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.
