epic build!

 

about farkin' time that they used a barra haha :icon_ford:

 

the only thing they did wrong was get CHE to tune it :stirthepot:

 

with 447rwkW in that chassis, it should comfortably run mid 9's. They did well to run a high 9, though :spoton::3gears:

 

If they wanted to keep the car hammering around, some pistons and conrods would have gone a long way to longevity, but that's all I'd change.

 

They got it to sound interesting with that exhaust, which I found odd.

Yeah didn't expect such a raspy note but interesting 4 inch down to 3 inch.

Like that they showed Changing the oil pump and valve springs.

Was thinking similar with the power and weight but was good to watch anyways.

Was awesome to see a barra build!

 

TBH I'm glad they used a stock short block just showing how amazing the barra is,

Things Id do differently.. 

NA ROCKER COVER GARNISH!

 

But the note was absolutely bizzare

Links don't work on tapatalk. Will have to go find it on safari.

 

There's 2 mins of my life I won't get back.. so other then that being useless from what I gather he said a 044 can't go past 400kw or something??? Still don't see how that's a decent reason, I mean I wouldn't run a car with a single 044 at 400kw if it was for a customer I'm all for sending sh*t to its limit and beyond so if it was my car I'd send it but I'm the one on the laptop so I get the sh*t when it melts stuff. Still I mean we will just sit here say he is sh*t while pretending we are better tuners and haven't even picked up a laptop a tuned a car...

Agreed!

 

Somehow engineered the exhaust with JDM spec sounds? Maybe the external gate?

Aeroflow coughed up a few parts.

 

Good to see they went a different way with parts and not the usual.   Thought they may have pushed it harder than 600hp.

Who the fark bank rolls a build like that for a Boob Tube channel.

That's epic.

Epic cash and people's time spent right there.......

 

There's a lot more to these guys than their youtube channel.

 

Between their mates helping, the large amount of sponsorship they receive and their own personal funds a build like this is a walk in the park for them compared to the average person.

 

In saying that they make it look pretty easy hey?!

According to Marty (who's active on another forum I'm a member of) it took 9*12hr days to complete with 4 guys working each day.

Maybe sorted that car can run 8s

Yeah I thought with how much effort and custom work was done we'd instantly see a nine second and then push it right to low 9 high 8 depending on the driver. That rear end and transmission combo would be capable surely? Just turn it up to 11 etc.
