Sales/Build sheet from Germany (Auto Ostheimer in Schollkrippen?) says Graphite

Yes they did. Nothing much planned for the interior as it is nearly mint. Maybe a new dash pad done in leather(still a ways off) and of course a fully custom one-of-a-kind (well for now anyway)digital instrument cluster built around the existing panel.[3][4]

Hi all, I have not forgotten you all or the project at all.

As a matter of fact Dan and I just spoke and we are moving ahead as quickly as my wallet allows. All the production, testing and development is just about complete per Dan, and a Stage II motor is just about complete(mine will be a Stage III) but at least we will know how all is going when we get to mine. Here is a few photos Dan was kind enough to share











Unfortunately Uncle Sam was quite cruel to me this year and some money I thought I would be putting towards my car went to subsidize some overpriced bottles of water to be sent to a desert half a world away, to soldiers who don't want to be there, surrounded by Muslims who want them dead.....Ahhhh America, the worst country in the world except for all the others.

Holy!

Thanks for the pics. I can see that they are using a 60-2 trigger wheel and sensor for their MS Engine System. I wonder if it is based on Mega Squirt???

Can't wait to see the dyno results. Please make sure you have them do it in different boost level so we all know what the engine is capable of.
