      Thanks for posting.  Great to see the progress.  Lot of brain food for me to digest here on a snowy afternoon.

Sum,

Are you still planning on running the 750 first..?

Yep, because of time restraints if I can even get that done this year but I'd like to run something with more HP.  2nd or 3rd choice would be blown 750 like what Jim and Greg did or a Busa.  2nd or 3rd choice would be if someone wanted to come into the project with the motor and wanted to share driving.  I would entertain that option with the right person, but that might be a reach for someone to take that chance since the car hasn't even turned a wheel at this point.

c ya,

Sum

Sum,

If I send you the parts to copy (header, plenum etc) would that get you started?..of course it would be for a Busa..

Thanks,

Hey Sum, everything on the busa will fit the 750 except the header spacing.

BTW, Linda said I have a package from you, when I get back to town I'll give you a call.  Turbo 750 is 2 club material...  shocked  grin

The package isn't quite Christmas all over again  cool, but it is what we talked about for use with the TIG.  I hope my car is 2 club capable at some point, but I'm keeping my initial expectations lower than that.  There is a lot of design work on the car that has no real previous tests on any other car as far as I can tell, so there might be some teething problems and changes after it finally runs.

Thanks for the encouragement though from you and everyone else.  I appreciate it,

Sum
