Hello everyone,

A good friend and client of ours, StealthJ as he's known on here, came to us looking to build upon his P800 GTR. He wanted something much faster, to go out and embarrass some of his friends, to drag race, do roll race events, take the wife to dinner, and more! Most importantly - he emphasized fast with class. No gutted race car, this car will keep its stereo, AC, and other interior amenities, and is complimented by our soon-to-be-released 8.5s certified "Stealth Cage" that is almost completely hidden from view with no added blind spots. This build started out as a P800 to R1K, but soon grew into the behemoth we are going to be testing very soon. J messaged me as soon as E2K dyno video was published (below) and told me he wanted that setup. Rather than jump right into that, Tym proposed a hybrid between our Goliath hardware and what the E2K runs, so it will be very interesting to see where the power ends up at.



This GTR will have one of our 3.8L VR38DETT's running on ethanol (flex-fuel!) with powertrain management via the Syvecs SGTR kit. We anticipate a power curve much like the one below but reaching 1650-1700whp, enough to propel this corn-fed animal in 7s territory at over 180MPH, with 60-130's in the sub-3-second range.

Quick teaser while we finish up editing more pictures...

Thanks everyone! Much appreciated.

 

Quick update - looks like the E2K turbos will not be here in time for vehicle completion before Shift-S3ctor, so we will be building it up as originally planned as "just" a flex-fuel Goliath and letting it rip. With E85 we should be able to make a bit more power than the Goliath's running on Q16, shooting for approximately 1600whp.

 

When it comes back, it will be game over - E2K refresh.

How about 2000 awhp? Is that doable on E85 or C16 or Q16?

E85 or Q16, or E98. The ethanol fuels would run considerably cooler.

That cage is a work of art - functional, yet stealthy!

That is truly impressive, I think I missed whether or not this car is going to be street driven?

Thanks Jason, all in good fun! Most important part is that it will work when the SHTF, which I'm sure yours will just as well as this one.

Absolutely. No compromises.

So is ethanol as good as good race gas, in terms of octane capacity? Which fuel has more octane in it?
