Very nice indeed. What organization are you going to run with? Is that a homemade header?

It is a 6 port, but not a conventional one. Notice how two of the runners go to the rotor housings? Semi-PP baby!

That car is something for all of us to look up to. Excelent work. I'd imagine you are running methanol. What EMS? Could you give us a breakdown of the setup?

Nice welding. But, why are the intake runners rectangular?

I cant really discuss the complete setup as of yet, we are trying some new things and dont want too many people knowing about it. However, I can say yes its a 6 port, yes its methonal, and yes in house manifold, and its very very very hard to make oval runners thats why rectangular runners. And that is not a bov, its the hks wastegate gt2 i think.

Glad you guys like it.

Are you for real? This is a drag car. Did you look at the front tires? Where the fuel tank is mounted?
