It will be 12:1 compression plus a M62 with a 3.0 pulley. The car got to Trevor's this weekend, so we should start having some really good updated this week!

Very nice! Are you going to run an Ethanol blend, race gas or what are you planning there?

Yup. AEM Infinity 508 will be running the car now. This makes me far more excited than it should.

I take it you will no longer be tuned by Trifecta? I'd be interested in more information of how you are setting up the ECU as I would eventually like to do something different from my stock, no tuning support, ECU as well.

I picked up a partial sponsorship from AEM Electronics this year, I provided all the parts, Trevor has his car already running on an AEM, so he's providing the experience.

Trifecta and I are no longer partners, correct, but Steven and I are still friends.


I will say going to the AEM requires building your own wiring harness and is not cheap. Heh.

I'm surprised you aren't in here telling him he should just trade it in and get an SS.

Like I said, car is at Trevor's shop. He has begun cleaning up the wiring for the AEM while the block is at the machine shop. But I mean, come on, how could you do better than the amazing wiring loom job the factory did 10 years ago, am i right?





Also, check out that super sweet job i did installing DEI Heat shield to the firewall. So fresh. So clean.

Single pass mod completed to manifold





And Stainless Surge tank installed for the fuel system.





Should have the block soon, so then the big progress starts.

Nice job on being relentless man - good quality to have!

Engine # 4 sounds like a fun project.

I wore your Foximus Racing t-shirt to SEMA last year since our shop was too busy to buy a booth!
