    I put around 1000 street miles on it in august, but never got it to the track.

    I had a slight mishap and parked it. Work has been crazy. This winter i am planning an undertray, hood venting and a real wing. Also considering e3 fenders to fit 255's. sorry, no video or pics.

    Is the weight distribution better than with the S54?

    Funny - I was so close to doing an LS6 swap, but then NASA changed rules so I ended up with an S54 in the car. This makes me wish I'd gone through with it! Great car - can't wait to see some video!!

    Had a student today in a C63...gobs of power with a very twitchy pedal. I can imagine what your car is like.

    hard to tell. I never got it out on the track. I also replaced the sway bar with an e36 one and did not have a chance to dial in. I can say it "feels" like it will handle well, but the torque..... my goodness. this will take some major driving adjustments. first, keeeping it below 6500rpm will require reprogramming my brain. second, stabbing the skinny pedal will result in grass stuffed in the tires. It is COMPLETELY the opposite of an s54.

    cheers, j

    I will report final scale numbers when done. the dual 3" exhaust is SUPER heavy. blah.

    Patience. I am too busy to even take a minute to snap a few. besides, it has 6 months of dust and grime all over it.

    Jason, is it up an running? Dying for an update here.
    Decided to rework all of the gauges, add a heater, rework all the power distribution, ect. A few more wires, coat headers, driveshaft and the final touches..... i actually see light at the end of this VERY long tunnel. Patience, little grasshopper.
