Looks good. Does the new hood allow enough clearance for the Optima battery without modifying the hood? Just curious.

Baddddd Aaazzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

I've never really like the Specter Werk vented hood, till I saw your pictures. SW should use your photos....they'd sell all they could make.

Thanks guys:thumbsup: I'm still detailing her and making her "gooder"...A few tweaks in the tune but looking for the 550's...No modifying the optima battery for the hood - it's sitting on the old brace. The hood is very lite and is very, very bendable when closing or opening. Like a thin sheet of metal..I love it!

"Sole"etr - I love that too!

Man crush?.....ah...Although I was raised in L.A. I'll have to respectively decline any said advances...Your're too funny! *grin*

The sound is... well....for some, very "alarming" no pun intended:thumbsup: :eek:

I'll the full car in some snaps and vids pretty soon and some dyno numbers when we drop down into the low 100's:rant2:

While you're adding to the 'goodness' of that beast, you going to add a touch of black to those calipers and tower brace mounts? ;)

I love your car. That coat on your rims the same color as the cadillac black? If so, sexy. Lookin forward to the vids.

I volunteer to fly out, drive your car to Doug's for the new rear, wait for it to be done and drive it back.

Chef,
Looks sweet, now go out and kick some arse!!!
Remember, you left a little (like 6psi) room for some boost, TTs would be very nice!

You're right....just a smidge...11:1 compression - eats race fuel for breakfast, Vipers for lunch & Gallardo's for dinner...:stirpot:
