      Spoke to Tyrolsport Greg and he said that the buzzing is actually someone in the shop using a whizz wheel! Thank God for that.

      That buzzing is the Aeromotive fuel pump.

      Drove the car home on Saturday night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!

      It felt so weird to be back behind the wheel of this vehicle but awesome at the same time.

      Still some issues to sort out... Need a new power steering pump, gotta fix the ground issue affecting the driver's side head and taillight, and gotta address the in-tank fuel pump.

      It's only at 7lbs. of boost but is still plenty quick. There is no delay with the boost, it seems like it's there right from idle! Even with the boost being low and only having driven the car for 1.5 hrs., I'd consider the goal of excellent low to mid power accomplished.

      I know I suck for not having pictures.

      It may be out at Dubs on Defrost this weekend... Fingers crossed

      Talk to Greg and Swoops about having something built! I'm just the idea/tear down/money behind the project.

      Greg and I haven't been able to get together so we can take a look at the wiring. I hope to do that soon. I'm just happy the car runs well.

      Do you want exactly what I've got or something a bit less extravagant?

      I've never tallyed up all my receipts, but I passed 10K a while ago... just in parts.

      Changed out the break-in oil last weekend and took the car out for some highway pulls...

      Oh boy. I'm more than happy with the power delivery! The car pulls immediately and doesn't let up until I take my foot off the gas. It's much faster and more immediate than the supercharger was even while running off the wastegates.

      I'll be seeing Jeff Atwood (United Motorsports) sometime soon for an update to the file. It's smooth right now, but needs some tweaking. I'm sure it'll be amazing.

      What was your break-in procedure?
      I just heard my built motor idle for the first time Sunday, and i am eagerly awaiting the first drive. Enjoy your new and improved baby!!

      I had Royal Purple break-in oil in it for a little over 400 miles. I drove it conservatively enough, changed the oil and beat on it.

      Congrats on getting your car running!

      I think I'll be taking Rte. 81 almost the whole way down... What's your route?

      We'll be leaving bright and early Wednesday morning from my parents' place in Quakertown, PA.
