Owned it for 4 years before I started building it during fall of 2014. First, I had Cars by Carl start the motor build. Over that winter, I installed the AJE K Member, Rhodes fuel cell, electric fuel pump, Hooker headers, electric exhaust cut outs, Reverse manual C6 trans, B&M shifter, MSD stuff, Hoosier DOT street slicks, and a host of other go fast goodies. Got it running in September 2015 and by November 2015 and about 10 runs later) got a best ET/MPH of 10.36 and 128 mph (first run was a tire spinning 12.36).

I added new carpet, seats and 5 point safety harness.
Only exterior modifications are the addition of a 4 inch tall Harwood cowl induction hood scoop and a front spoiler.
