I see that most of you that responded to my Warning Points post think that I give good information in trying to help you out, but disagree with the way I come off in answering posts sometimes. O.K. I will try and be more compassionate when responding to posts as I hope others will be towards me.

My sincere condolences to you and the whole family. Shelby occasonally spoke of his extended family with pride and love as well as the occasional grumbling "time for that kid to grow up" type of stories. Because of those stories I know how close the family is and feel for you and the rest of the family as well. I never met your grandfather face-to-face myself though we shared several enjoyable cross-country telephone calls over the years.

Long story short the hard work payed in full. The car was extremely competitive the whole weekend winning most events in all classes, let alone the gt2k (under 3k lbs class) The wider track, better tires and overall look of the car took it home. I beat the living hell out of it like always and it took it in strides. Couldn't be happier with her. Finally I got my ticket back to SEMA for another shot at the title of the Ultimate Street Car. Took first in all events except for the auto x by .3 secs to a nascar framed pickup (No Limit Racing C10) MONSTER haha
There are 6 qualifier events left throughout the country, I GUARANTY you will have the most fun you've ever had in your car. Visit www.ultimatestreetcarassociation.com for the list. SIGN UP!
On to pics. Video soon, got some editing to do. Thank you to all who have posted in the "going wider" thread, you guys really keep me motivated to continue pushing. I received TONS of coverage, TV, websites and prolly a few magazines in the process. The value of our cars is on the rise!

I've known and talked to Shelby on the phone since 2004. I cleats called him Old Man cuz he was a year and 7 days older than me. He called me Kid.
An example of what a great guy he was - In 2004 right after I joined SQC, I posted that I needed an A/C foot/face actuator. The next day he Pm'd me his phone number so I called him. He sent me free of charge a good actuator with the bellows that worked for about 6 years. We talked about Starquests and Mopar B, RB and Hemi engines cuz we both twisted wrenches on 'em back in the '70 & '80's for drag racing. After that we stayed in phone contact every 2 to 3 months over the years hence.
I went down to his place in 2012 and 2014. We BS'd the whole day and he gave me some hard to find parts for the Old Broad in 2012. We'd sit on the Ocala Cracker Barrel front porch rocker chairs drinking coke and solve the worlds and Starquests problems for hours after getting something to eat.
I talked to him on the phone in the beginning of June '16 and knew that his time on earth was coming to an end in the near future. I just did not think that it would be this soon.
Shelby and PQ were among the most gifted auto mechanics (and would give you the shirt off of their backs if you needed it) that I have ever had the privilege to know and learn from.
Most important of all, they were among my best friends.
I will miss Shelby very much.

Most engines can suprise. Thats maybe what I like about the out dated, under powered, unsupported G54B. I was at a shop a day ago inquiring about using their dyno and when he asked what I had, I said, "just a crappy 4 banger" he laughed and said, "cant be that bad" he asked more and when I told him what it made and what it runs he laughed and said, thats better than 90% of the cars I see. talked about SRT-4's, Mustangs, Supras, 240's and other V8's. Then I told him it was a single stick 8 valve head and he laughed in amazement. All well built cars are cool as long as they are DIFFERENT.
