    Thanks for the kind words!

    No wife- happly divorced...Girlfriend has driven it once.

    I joined the board to see if I could do something with the Pully that backed off on the harm-balancer but after looking into it...Found myself droping it off today at east coast supercharging and YES they are doing more than a new crank pully..

    There goes the $$$ for the new gears and torque converter

    Wanted to take the vette with me today (bussiness travel) but shit happens! hopefully in a couple of days it will be worth the wait... lol

    Here is another pic... I like to think of it as a 1:1 scale Hotwheel car lol
    The blackouts are in my room and the LED's are on their way... Hopefully Chris from ECS will give it back tomorrow when he's done.

    No dyno as of yet..I had the computer tune and a few bolt-ons. The tune was done at Corvettes of Westchester (CoW) and was more of a seat of the pants type rather than a Dyno. I was very happy with it until I had the pulley problem earlier this week and then took it to East Coast Supercharging for a fix Chris there is going to put it on the Dyno when he is done with whatever he is doing to tune it however, I feel that the Dyno is "just a number" and a tool for the tuner to adjust their work. How it gets to the ground (rwhp) and the feel of the car is my interest.

    Sound does matter to me too lol

    What do you have in your TA and is it Dyno'ed?
