    I am being told it may go to the dyno by the end of the week. Just my luck.......it's about 98 degrees and 70% humidity! Not as good DA for dyno work!

You have to beef up the suspension, tranny, differential, axles, half shafts, etc. Once you go down this road you will find that you can't cut any corners or you end up paying much more in the long run. I would strongly advise anyone starting a big project to go in with both eyes open and start a budget so you can see exactly what this will cost you. Remember you will be doing this for your own satisfaction cause you will never recoupe the expense if you decide to sell the vehicle.

    This is advise I also give!! A majority of people who have high HP engines built for them forget about the rest of the drive train and especially the chasis! It also helps to have the front seems welded on your panels so the flex doesn't crack your paint!

    I only have 800HP at the treads and learnt the hard way by breaking: standard right hand side stub axle, right hand side CV shaft, snapping the standard hemisphere in half in diff, twisting the drive shaft like a piece of licorice and blowing the T56 gearbox! I also disintegrated every aluminium pulley on the engine and have now gone for stainless steel ones!

    Sitting down and doing your homework will save you alot of time and money on a HUGE build like this one!

    I congratulate you sir on a job well done and building a monster that can be used as an every day driver! It's an incredible build!!

    P.S. 70% humidity isn't too bad, atleast it will be tuned safely to handle those sort of temps right from the "get go"

    Think my journey for saving money is about to start. for some reason I've gotten this urge that within a couple years I want an 06+ ZO6.

    For some reason I ever make it out towards Atlanta, I definately want to see this vette in person.

    Power steering reservior possibly? relocated a bit higher for clearance and room issues it almost looks like. Prolly wrong. Any other reservior would probably be for meth or c16(if he wanted to run race gas for better dyno numbers)

    Give that man a rubber cigar! power steering reservior it is! You can's see it but the clutch fluid reservior has a heat shield under it to keep the heat down as well.
