2.3 Final Build
#1

I've had lots of fun with the 2.3 platform. This is my final big change to my car I now call #TexasGrunt. Many have seen prior builds and updates and the car continues to get quicker,  faster.......and more expensive. I could had definitely done more with less at different stages but that's never been my goal.

The current build and updates are the finals items to try and make and far surpass my 1200hp goal I touted back in 2013. We've had the car at 52psi and 8000rpm a couple times but not consistent. 

Big change items include tubular front end, dry sump oiling, wide band methanol update,new Garrett turbo from Boport, a  Gen 2 GTX5009r and race pack dash so I have more than an oil pressure gauge and shift light. Lol

Pics to follow....

TexasGrunt, take off. Loading build pics to cloud then will be adding more in a bit.
