      Well I have had the car back for a couple months now and thought it was about time I took the time to let the world see the extraordinary work from HPA and Velocity. I really can't thank Marcel and Tim enough for the work of art they created. For me, it is perfect in every way.

      Thank You, Scott

      Scott,


      That is just flat out a show car!

      Under the hood is just amazing!

      I hope one day my car could look half as good as that...

      Great job to all who made this happen

      Sincerely

      Bill

      The upholstery was done at Velocity Upholstery up in British Columbia. They will be working on a couple more projects very soon.

      Very nice. Just curious if you have any videos of the car in action, and what's the max PSI you've seen so far, 10?

      I have not taken any videos, but possibly Marcel has some that he will post. The max PSI that I have seen is just a little over 9. I baby it so I know that there is more.

      This looks fantastic!

      I just finished the installation of a Typhoon kit on my car this past Friday. Will post up some pics when I get some good ones. So far I'm pretty impressed with it, but I've only driven about 30 miles so far, and have not driven it real hard yet.

      The interior on this car is amazing. Don't have much interior left in my car, but if I did, I'd want it to look like this.

      Looking good

      The setup looks amazing

      I also Notice that you had red stitching done to your seat belts as well

      Im guessing its going to be about 360 WHP on a dynojet machine, and more with 100 octane...

      Thats a lot of HP from a V-9 IMHO...

      Its a great build and so much more than where it all started...The start was about 287 WHP, so HPA has squeezed an extra 73 WHP out of this blower! Just amazing
