    Summer is coming and it's time for me to change into asphalt mode. All winter I've been trying to decide which sled to race this summer and finally decided a couple weeks ago yo race the Apex and try to run with the big boys.

    So here's the plan, I have the apex stripped right down to the tunnel, sent the block and head to Hurricane and Dave's building me a 700 hp big bore block with his head porting in the head. Fitting a bigger Garrett turbo and going to make the sled as light as I can. Goal is 550 hp, still working on a direction with engine management, but leaning to Daves stand alone. Other things to still consider are exhaust and boost control, I'll post those as we go along with lots of pictures of progress and the build.

    I'm getting the motor back tomorrow, I've been working at fabbing up exhaust pipes and mounting the turbo this week. I'll finish up putting the motor together on the weekend and drop it back in the chassis early next week and hopefully be ready to head to Hurricane's by the end of the month to install standalone, get it running and dyno it.

    One run anywhere in the 7's for 1/4 would make me happy - outlaw has gone to 1000' and ODSRA is 660' - so going to concentrate on shorter distances

    It's a proline, believe 07 era.

    Motors almost all together thanks to Dave at Hurrican, just have to put oil pump and pan on and final drive and stator cover. Should have it in chassis tomorrow

    Picture of exhaust. I've been talking with Allan Ulmer about his header for the Apex and have one on the way, I'll add more pictures of it when it's in my hands. It's a direct replacement for the stock 11+ Apex without the exup, perfect for what I'm doing!

    We'll see how accurate Garrett's rating is - hoping for 550hp
