      I'll be watching your monster build unfold anxiously.

      Here's a video of Tim watching the oil and coolant temps rise. Tim, John and Benji @ NGP have been great throughout this build. A little more driving tomorrow and checking for leaks then she is ready for pickup.

      PM me if your interested in a used GT2860RS!

      Wow. I'm at like 350 total since mine was done. Looks like you'll be stepping on it hard by Sunday. Nice

      Just hit 200 and letting it cool down a bit before I change the oil. Beer. Vids when I get my hands on my buddies gopro. Thanks again for the PM.

      Too much throttle modulation to tell in break-in. Plus I'm not in boost. It's really the other way around.
