BAP business ?? Well conventional wisdom would state that you can't get what Tom is getting out of the stock pump. I have no freaking idea, so I stay out of that altogether.
If I remember correctly Probe actually makes alot of the high end pistons for many of the other companies, but the pistons they sell are of a lesser quality, more of a budget piston that wont holds up to the abuse of FI.

Its extremely nice for Bill, Brian George, Jed and Luis to attend and support you in your time of celebration of life for Marianne. Also know you had friends and supporters throughout this country with you in thoughts and prayers during your service, I know I was there with you!

Thanks Jed for the glimpse to the past with the wedding pictures. You and Ray were studs, look at that black hair. Looks like times has been good to both of you.
+20, ray and jed, that wedding pic is pretty cool! I dont know how long ago that was but neither one of you look much different, maybe just a little wiser!

Wrong year, but an example close to my color scheme:

I kinda like those, but I think I'd stick with whatcha got.

18x9 should allow you to run 275's.
I won't be changing tires right now... but I have 18x9 rims now with the 255's.

I definitely want the 18x9's. And they have the proper 2005+ offset of 36mm which is what I have now.

The ones I posted are actually more period correct with those openings:

I bought those rims before I knew I was going with the Mach 1 theme. I've always wanted to change them.

Not against them... just don't see why one is necessary for me. Plus, I'm down to 8 psi now, so the demand is even less.

Strange so if you're only at 25% then your factory pump can support 800hp with ease?? I wish I would have run my car on the factory pump to see where I was at. If you stay where you are now its all good, I knew I was going for more so that why I had the GT500 AND a BAP installed.

Now I need to get the car on the dyno to tune it with the Zex kit!

That could be but the engine size and turbo really kinda blows the period correct outta the water




Either way they are good looking rims

Tom- I think you should get the V6 rocker panels and the have the lower lip of the rear bumper painted to match. I think that would look pretty badass.

Awesome!!!

Excuse my ignorance but is the hp rating on that engine any higher than the stock? Or is just stronger? I know, I know I'm an idiot.
