Lucky for us the Alzheimers will be kicking in and he would have forgotten to top the tank up with gas so there won't be too much damage. And Roddy that isn't pudding your sitting in.

I also hope you don't wipe it out cause I know how you old guys sometimes hit the gas instead of the brake.
I have that problem solved, I am removing the brake pedal

When all is said and done I will add it up. Of course somethings will be cheaper because all the mistakes I made won't need to be repeated and once it's been done the second and third times are always faster.

Expensive, try getting a one-off of the input\output shafts and gears re-cut out of stronger steel (or an auto race prepped tranny), add to that custom driveshafts and all the Grand Am upright parts, and then you will see how this isn't that expensive

All in good time but not before the car is done.

I think you missed something in the translation, the project is on going and the signature changes with the project.

I removed my engine last May 21st and started this project. The project started out as a twincharged setup. That morphed into a parralle twin turbo setup. That changed to a sequential twin turbo setup. Then when the cost sky rocketed in trying to get a strong enough transmission to handle the expected 750hp, the plan changed again to become a twin turbo, RWD project. The last dyno I had on my car was 254whp, 2 months before the engine was removed. I hope this helps.

No cheating on the wife. She is the best and she supports my "dream" which makes her an "Angel". Of course she has joked that if I pass away there will be no shortage of guys lining up to want a crack at "the car"

As soon as I have the car back I will be making plans for the trip to Alberta. I will give everyone plenty of warning.
