That's kool man. A cruiser and a bruiser. It would be really neat to see you pulling the sedan with the wagon. The thing that people wouldn't realize is that the wagon can kick some pretty good butt too.

no disrespect intended.....
 
there is humor in there.... somewhere..... . my ride is over 400 to the wheels and gets near 30 mpg......his has much better fit and finish but all in all is probably a similar ride to mine but with a very different exhaust note...and hes got a ton more $$$ in his than ill ever have in mine....
 
edit.... i keep forgetting i have 2 now.... the wagon is around 300 whp and gets 30 also....still. .... not as nice as reeves

Had a big grin reading that  ;D

Likely is as fast, if not faster (yours). As mine sits I am not 100% sure on HP & TQ. It was 473 HP & 416 TQ without the windage tray. Add (about) 10 HP with it (was put in after the dyno pulls) Not sure if it would change the TQ ?
For over 500 HP all I do is change the 750 dp to an 850 dp Holley. Engine builder says he chose the 750 for better street manners. I'll see about that, as I will be picking up an 850 to see for myself.
After I get the car all back together (next summer) I'll do another dyno run to see what is getting to the pavement.
Goal was for 450 + HP at the ground. If it is below that, next winter the motor will be pulled & re-built.

Plus yours is likely 400 +/- lbs lighter ?

But I'm an old school V8 guy. I have never had anything to do with turbos.
