Are you going to be using a different head unit or the same V3SI?

where was it implied that the motor failed in any way?

afaik, the car was running fine when he dropped it off in Arizona a few weeks ago.

This should be an interesting thread. You might need to do a custom wide body like MAC did to fit big enough tires on the rear.

The motor did not fail, what would make you assume that?

The Motor is in good shape and did you not see the vid of it running Mason's VT535 days before they started the build?

It's about time someone did this type of build with full disclosure. Everyone, including myself will be very interested on the actual parts used when it is all said and done. I'm also interested in seeing how the drive train and tranny hold up to this additional power. While you are at it you may as well tub out the rear for some serious meats out back!

See you soon!
Haha, thanks Larry!

congrats Drew! When you find out compression and other details please keep us all updated. I'm very interested to see the details on the motor build.
Thanks man, will do!

No changes in displacement, no sleeves I'll be using the same block, same kit, same blower. Thank you!

Ha, some people!

Drew, to say that I'm envious is an understatement! Your car was a beast, now it's going to be from another world!! Congrats!!
