Man that screamer hood dump is awesome. I'm still on the rotary side but have one that dumps in about the same spot right in front of the passenger seat. People don't know what to think when it blows a 6 foot flame out the hood at night on a major freeway.

Thanks guys! I cant imagine 900whp, i turned mine up a couple psi so it should be well in the 700whp range and its already crazy. And i do like the hood exit just for the flames alone but im gonna try to run a full exhaust and make it a little more street car-ish. And it means I won't have to cut up a $1k hood in the future.

Finally got my feed sidesteps on and installed some Cusco zero coilovers, so no more ridiculous stance.
Also added some billet coil brackets and high output d585 coilpacks.

Thanks! It's a billet wheel s480 with a 96 t6 1.32ar turbine. Same as the vsracing one but i found them much cheaper.
I love it so far, but it might be laggy on a 4.8 unless you go t4.
