Sounds very healthy! What numbers did it make?
That intake manifold is pretty tall. I wonder if it will fit with a standard hood scoop?

What colour have you chosen for the car?
Looking forward to seeing lots more details. I love build threads!

Great stuff mudbrick. I noticed your chassis number on the jig just before mine :-) (makes sense, mine's #33).

Awesome engine setup!

Give us the lowdown on your car specs.

Bring on the build thread....

Mudbrick can I ask 2 questions...

Will there be any problem to fully street register that motor? I did hear that some constraints had been wound back.

Also why did u get your engine built in the USA? Price, recommendation? Having been down that path, with the experience I had, I could never do that again.
No reflection on your engine builder....

Interested in your feedback.

Please continue with heaps of pics etc.

That's the way to kick off a build thread -- with your engine on a dyno!!

Could you post the run sheet some time?

Spook, no need to stress. Prestige Motor Sports are well regarded builders of high-end street and race motors. A build of this calibre would be well within their capabilities and experience. Now, as for your nuclear reactor, well that's a different kettle of fish entirely ...

Thanks for the kind words and questions.
Dyno info I'll get in a couple of weeks when I call back to Prestige
The motor should fit under hood/scoop. Ht I'm told from bottom oil pan to top of air filter 30 1/2"
Running 351w, stoked to 408. Approx 450hp, TKO 600 g/box
Will be painting car Candy Apple Red, grey/silver stripes, interior to match.
Have gone with full kit from AP, and standard body (white) as it will be painted.
Had followed Prestige on Facebook page for a few mths, sent emails, got quotes on a couple of pkgs, and as I'm in the US and was staying a couple of hrs drive away I went for a visit. Doug has a good setup and was (still is) very helpfull and accommodating. So was happy to part with $$$$

Are you planning on licencing your build, or is it a track car only?

Mudbrick, do you envisage any problems registering the car for road use?
