An incredible build, it looks amazing. The two of you must be getting real anxious to finally get back in and go for a drive.
Thank you sir! I like how the bay came out, but if you ask my wife she'd say it needs more color! haha! I did promise her the calipers will be powdercoated teal/turquoise when the time comes! Oh and yes, I keep her spoiled plenty! I kind of have to since she does nothing but support me when it comes to buying stuff for and building this car lol. Nah she's great, thank you for the kind words.Epic update. Love the HKS theme. Hope you're saving some extra money for Christmas and Birthday presents for your awesome wife.
Thank you Steve! Your insight/knowledgeable replies scattered about the forums have helped me so many times over the years!Looking good!
Thank you much Ryan!An incredible build, it looks amazing. The two of you must be getting real anxious to finally get back in and go for a drive.
Haha! Yeah I've fully converted to a whiskey guy as of late last year, I started with loving bourbons, and I'm moving into the Irish whiskey and scotches slowly but surely, Hibiki Harmony is my second favorite so far. Thanks!In for the bourbon photo alone. Love this build.
Fantastic work, my friend. What a journey!
You know, I always thought I have the very best Supra wife in the world. Still do, but your wife is definitely in the conversation. I do hope you can make it out to SIV2020. That would be like icing on a very lovely cake. This thread, and a few others, have really breathed new life into the Builds & Projects subforum. Incredible contribution you have made.
Not much out there that's quite like getting a longtime project car on the dyno after a long build. Sucks that you ran out of time but dynos always seem to have a way of bringing up small issues. Especially that dynoAfter spending a majority of the year sorting out harness issues, the car finally hit the rollers today.
Typo that's supposed to be 71% ethanol? Either way, awesome number for 19psi.Car made 701whp on wastegate pressure (19psi) on 71% octane.
Thanks Adam! It sure feels good, just seeing it making some noise was plenty for me that day! Hope to be driving it soon! Good thing I live in a place where cars can be enjoyed pretty much all year!Sounds amazing, Rich! You have to be happy all of that hard work is paying off. Hope to see you enjoy driving the car soon.
Oh yeah! I'm not too hung up on running out of time, it was a simple fix and the car is just awaiting a gap in the tuner's schedule to hit the rollers again! It's been an emotional roller coaster this last week or so for me, ups and downs but mostly ups! As for that dyno, I've heard stories but I don't have anything negative to report and hopefully it stays that way!Not much out there that's quite like getting a longtime project car on the dyno after a long build.

Looking forward to seeing what you get out of this at full boost. And seeing it around town. If I ever get out around town
Excellent. As for the dyno, it ate my oil filter that ended with the crank, rods, and pistons mangled. No fault of the dyno or Eric of course, just kinda happens that wayAs for that dyno, I've heard stories but I don't have anything negative to report and hopefully it stays that way!
BTDT.I would have been happy to pull it off the dyno right after that 701whp pull and call it good for now lol.
I will absolutely make it to C&C for that, and will attempt to drag @Wreckless along. Keep us updated on the final numbersI'll be at the Car&Coffee on Jefferson once it's done though, hope to meet you soon man!
Car's in good hands with Eric, but yeah, I feel the same way there.I wanted to be there in case any issues arose, and to get some footage but unfortunately work took priority. I could have taken the car back and scheduled for another day, but I figured this was the quickest way to have the car back in my hands! To be honest, I had some trouble sleeping those couple days the car wasn't parked in my garage! lol
I personally feel like this is the golden range for the street, especially with that torque number.The final numbers. 1038hp - 923tq @35psi, 77% ethanol. I was shocked when he called me with the news! I told him STOP, NO MORE!
There are some in-advisable times and places yes, but I mean...........😆but we did setup the rolling anti-lag which I learned real fast that it's not something to do just anywhere
That means your build is spot onI just went out to do a full pulls turned up a little bit, at 24psi I started reacting like my wife haha!
