Thanks Bill.

Hang in there buddy, hopefully very soon!

I got mine in the mail yesterday.

I am very happy that they honored your build like they did in there man.

You totally deserve for your work to be published. And that's not me just being a friend by saying that.

I REALLY mean it.

Your work is astonishing.

Corey

I have a small update, I got the waist gates done and installed, still need to run some oil lines to the turbos, and a couple lines to the waist gates, I all so added some weld to the intake plenum, still need to make a starter and dip stick and do a few more details and this thing is finally about done! I took it to Omaha to a show this weekend so I added some temporary exhaust to give it a more finished look.IMG_1295-vi.jpgIMG_1296-vi.jpgIMG_1294-vi.jpg thanks for looking!
