Yes, yes it is. The thing about this one though is that it smells sweet running on alcohol.

I talked with him this morning and he said he needs to get the write-up information from home. So perhaps I will have some more information for tomorrow.

How much HP is it making? Torque?

Ok, he has given me the information.

As far as HP and torque are concerned, he has not taken it to the dyno so his values are theoretical. He says HP is around 650 - 700 depending on the fuel and the torque is in the 500-550 range.

One thing to keep in mind is that he started building this car before parts were readily available. He is meticulous with his vehicles and this one is very well done.
