I haven't seen a video of that beast making vroom vroom noises. Am I missing something?

I'm just a goober in the garage with a lot of spare time. At this point I've made more bad videos than good. To be honest, I still have a ton to learn. Thanks for the kind words though!

page 7

This is basically the first start up. Sort of amazed it fired right up but that's the beauty of a computer. Visually, the coolest thing to watch in the video is the dual serpentine belt and all the pulleys spinning in coordination and of course the whine of the Blower. Everything looks busy and loud and rough around the edges.

That powerplant package is perfect for these little cars. If I could come to terms with losing that sweet V8 rumble, I'd probably have a supercharged V6 or something similar like you have there. That is an awesome car!
