    you mean this ?

    "We chose to use the Factory inner CV's on this kit as after Quantitive analysis we found the inner to be a material close to a 4140 chromoly with a hint of Vanadium. We have used this type of end before with outstanding results after a special Temper and re-heat treat. "

    considering the monster you're building, maybe getting hold of one of their prepped shafts would be good. Can't wait to see this run. ....G.

    where is the like button???

    also, since you had custom hubs made up, how much did just the hubs cost? I'm wondering about lug pattern changes...

    YOUR getting antsy?? Cry me a river ... I've been playing around with this thing in pieces for over a year now trying to get all of the right parts in order

    On another note you need to change your viewing settings, I'm only seeing 25 pages.... and on yet another note... this is post number 1000 in this thread HAHA!

    You bet. I was hoping to get the car with some paint on it, but alas... found some additional prep work that was needed and we ran out of time. I really wanted to at least get the engine bay complete so I could start assembling the powertrain and get it running. However before that can happen I need to finalize the fuel system. I think I am just going to drop the tank and replace everything.

    New tank
    New tank straps
    New lines with AN fittings, -8 supply, -6 return
    Dual Aeromotive 340 Stealth pumps (second one to kick in when the IMRC would normally turn on)
    1000cc fuel injectors
