OK, so I couldn't post a 1st startup video. Too many unseen issues that came up. Got through all of that, and she's running FINE. This is just a bench tune based off my specs. Still have to get it to them to put on the dyno for a real tune. I think they did pretty darn well for a bench tune. Only thing he forgot to remove was the fuel tank pressure warning (that is the reason for the buzzer and blue light - check engine light).

Heading out to get the other seat done, put the front glass in, and get the hood on. Have prior obligations all week long and weekend too, so I won't get much road time with her for a bit. But I'm STOKED!!!

The cam is an FTI - Flowtech Inductions (Ed Curtis) Streetsweeper HT. Exhaust is Church Boys headers, Summit 3" X pipe into 3" Spintech Sportsman mufflers into 2.5" tails. All mandrel bends.

Enjoy!! :devil: Forgive the hedge trimmers you here in the background at first!! LOL

Watching the video, I cannot believe it is FINALLY my car on Youtube!! YEE HAH!!!

Darn straight I'm psyched John. The last 4 days prior to turning the key I kept dreaming I was driving it and it sounded like a 4 cylinder. YIKES!! And thanks for the compliment.

Got the windshield installed (thanks to StupesNova's awesome write up in the best of body and interior) and got the hood on, and also got the driver's seat put together. Just need to re-up the passenger side bottom and put the back on it, and she'll be ready to cart the family around town!!:devil:
