We are pretty excited to be building this ELITE Prime car at our new NE location for an awesome customer!
The client originally reached out with an engine noise in his 2017 that was bad enough the engine needed to come out. Well you guys know how that goes. “While it’s out” LMAO!
He decided that if he was going to have to do an engine build he should contract some of the best in the business. (His words not mine) Originally the plan was to do a mild engine build with some used ELITE Prime turbos I had and keep the Jacks 800 trans for a target of about 1000hp. Well… as I said one thing always leads to another. We decided to send the trans back to Jack for him to upgrade to a 1000 package. This was the most economical upgrade path and the customer already had been in contact with Jack so it worked out.
To add to that we upped the anti a little by adding a Fore fuel system and ID1700s in order to support a little more power. Along with our TSM Street 3.8 he upgraded to our Level 1 head package with upgraded valves, springs, cams and our pocket port job. We love the GSC parts for the head so that is what we use throughout. We have been working with GSC for years and they are simply some of the best there is.
So the goal is now 1200whp give or take, that said there was a few more things on the list. Catch can system needed to be updated to a better flowing one, rear axles were in order so we ordered them, and a 3.5-4” ETS exhaust to get all those gasses out of the turbine!
We are very excited about this build! The guys after all of their training are getting to push forward and kick ass at the North shop and can’t wait to prove to the world just how good our expanded TSM team really is!
Unlike my other threads this one will be a bit ongoing, we started the car a couple weeks ago and should be all done sometime the end of next week once the trans is back. I’ll be posting updates as we go. Please feel free to ask any question you have!
Thank you for entrusting us with your car Jimmy!
