Today s the big day! It should be rattling the little widgits off the neighbors shelves in a few hours.

Over the last couple nights I got the bumper buttoned up except for the paint. I'm really happy with the way it turned out too. I'm guessing that it weighs in around 30 lbs because I can easily handle it by myself.

Here's a few shots on it bolted on for the final test fit.









Just a few hours from a bunch of noise....

Its





A



LIVE!!!!!!

Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!

OK- 1st a disclaimer on the vid. We set the idle to around 1800 RPM's to get the temp up so it really doesn't sound that great... too loud so the phone didn't pick it up real well. Also it is now apparent to me that the camera on my phone sucks. Sorry for the horrible quality. But it runs!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOn6ryKCl-I


After an hour cool-down we fired it back up to give the throttle a couple good snaps. It sounded shweeeeet. The idle is nuts. I ran it up to around 3K and then snapped it to open up the 3rd and 4th barrel. I was hoping for 6500-6800. It went to 8300!

Down-side... It immediately threw both belts. So no vid of it at the lower idle. Oh well- I expected to do a little more tweaking so I'm good with it.

It's hard to describe the joy/relief I'm feeling knowing that the internals are doing exactly what they should. I'm finally coming down from the adrenaline rush and think I might take a nap and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
