Yep, 2 weeks turned into a year. I guess it's almost time for some updates.

The truck has been sitting for a while now, I bought a custom timing belt (square tooth) assembly from Esslinger, I had a heavy duty turbo manifold built, a few T3 turbos, an intercooler and pipe and I sourced an 88 Turbo Bird computer.

I am in the middle of a Pontiac 2.5 build with all custom internals and head, it's taking my time and $$. I really have to drag the truck out and continue. Time is eating me alive.

More pix soon.

I figure I'll have to spend about 4 to 5K to get into the 12s.

I went to take pics yesterday, my camera battery was dead. Typical.

You can see some pics here:

I'll post more as I go.
Just FYI - pics from here are gone.

Never rode in it. I rode in yours. The motor was from a mercury cougar, all stock.
