Default Racecraft Mod Pictures and Dyno: My turn!

Well there was a car show this weekend and I was lucky enough to get everything ready for it. I ordered the radiator extensions and (because I had hear Midwest isn't the best at color matching) had a friend paint them for me. On top of that, I ordered the Chicane strut brace and had the brackets color matched as well. I like a very clean, OEM looking engine bay. Just for kicks, I had him paint the airbox cover, which came out exceptionally good. Oh, and I had a nice little plaque made up for the rad support cover space. Enjoy!

Another Show Picture:





While at the show, I put the car on a mobile Dynojet. In the hot heat this Saturday, the car made 373HP, 377TQ SAE to the wheels. I know Mike on here dyno'd at 393HP but his was STD, not SAE. STD is always 4% higher do to the correction factor. With that 4%, we are pretty **** close. Pretty consistant tune on our cars I'd say. I was pretty happy nonetheless. All uphill from here in terms of power!






Here's some other pictures I worked on. Enjoy!

Sweet! Under the hood, looks like the factory should have done it! Got to LOVE that flat torque curve from 3-5,000 rpm.
Beautiful car!

Looks great I would have got the blue if the one I looked at had silver stripes.

Thanks guys.

I was skeptical at first(bad online pictures), but when I saw it in person I agree the silver looks great against the blue. The wheels and stripes almost match the car perfectly.

And yes, love the torque!

Here's the dyno video. Doesn't do a lot of justice. You can't here the S/C whine very much b/c a) its not very loud at only 4psi and b) the guy taking the video was behind and just got most of the exhaust. Enjoy!
