    Awesome! I've always felt that the bond between Viper and owner isn't complete until a hands on build is undertaken. All that planning, work, sweat, blood and swearing will only bring you closer to your Viper. That's going to be a beast! Congrats!

    After putting mine back together I debated on whether or not I should have powdercoated the JMB box and tubes blue too. I tried to block it out because it'd be entirely too much work to have that stuff redone, but you've gone and made me think about it again. Jerk :D

    Looks great!

    Started it up and everything sounds/looks GREAT! I plan on doing a couple heat cycles and then flushing the water from the coolant system. RPM's seemed to climb faster than before and it Idles about the same. I did get the CEL with a code of P0500 (vehicle sensor), which is pretty weird since it's sitting on jack stands. I erased the code and hopefully it doesn't come back. Thanks for the compliments...

    You had to bore the holes out in the hub? Do you happen to know which part # you used?

    No, I bored the holes (slightly) on the pulley because the bolts that ATI supplied were bigger than stock. I got the Supercharger Series damper from Summit part # 917931E.

    Yep, I drove the car around town and did some data logging to make sure it was safe for the trip to Jacksonville to Roe's shop. I also burped the coolant system at the same time. The car was running a little lean at cruise, but nothing major. The car actually has great drivability considering the new cam and no tune. I didn't do any WOT runs (or any driving about 3k) or boost it at all because I want to make sure it's safe.

    I dropped it off at Sean's last Monday for him to remove the VEC and do the SCT tune. It rained the whole way down there and I almost got stuck in a hail storm so the car is filthy, oh well. I told Sean to take his time and make sure everything is good so I'm not really sure how long it'll be till it's done.

    ????? What do you mean smart ass answer? The blower was working perfectly, I just upgraded to a 2.8L since I was adding better flowing heads/intake and figure it would be a better match (not the best).

    When I did the 2.8 upgrade, I sold my 2.4 for $1000.00. So the net cost was only around $1400 for a brand-spanking new, bigger blower. Lots of Mustang guys are looking for the 2.4's.

    That's just the blower. It does not include the intake airbox,manifold, injectors, fuel rails, bypass valve, and all the other small stuff that makes up the kit.

    It's like selling the turbos off a TT kit...
