411 wtq??? good lord. what have you done to get that much torque? i looked at the mods listed in your gallery but didn't see the "secret +100wtq mod"...

looks good and must be a monster when auto-xing.

i love the harness bar and camera mount. i need one of those.

Doug from Topspeed worked the magic. I was as surprised as anyone. If I can get my scanner program working again I'll upload the dyno sheet. We're talking 411 @ 2830 rpm with a base of 349 @ 4225 rpm. Have yet to make it to an event. First time out scheduled for June 25 on a very flat slippery course. But let me say that on the street nailing it in 2nd gear is quite pleasing!
