Talking Update on my TTSaleen project 2024




Back in 2009 I originally started the build on this combination.
I've tweaked it some over the years, but today this is how it sits:

ENGINE -
5.4 iron shortblock (Oliver rods, Diamond pistons, etc)
GT Supercar 4 valve heads (ported) and stock GT Supercar cams
Sullivan intake (modified by Kris Starnes for GT Heads)
Holley Terminator-X computer system

TURBO SYSTEM -
Garrett twin 67mm Big Kahuna turbos (journal bearing)
Custom made air-to-air intercooler
All stainless hot and cold side piping

FUEL ITEMS -
Bosch 210# injectors
Terminator Cobra fuel tank
Fore Innovations triple pumps with hat
E85 fuel

DRIVE TRAIN ITEMS -
TH400 transmission (built by Jason @ Wicked Performance in Raleigh, NC)
Circle D converter
33 spline axles with 9" ends (c-clip eliminators) and 3.27 gears
Mickey Thompson 275 pro drag radials

I have dealt with transmission issues over the last 15 years from manuals (T-56) to a 4R70W (which did well for years before the clutches finally burnt up), a 6R80 (which was plagued with the Quick-6 controller issues), and finally the Turbo 400 in it now.

For 2024, I finally got a chance to try everything out (new Holley computer, E85 Fuel, and TH400) and it was my personal best ET and MPH ever in any current or previous car I have owned.
Still sorting out how the car wants to launch, I clicked off a 1.37, 5.55 @ 131mph, and 8.51 @ 166mph.
It is awesome. Drives like stock and still retains all factory options including cold air-conditioning.
