Finally got some things squared away while I'm off working crazy hours in Texas and I can start working on the truck again.

Here's a little video I made for the truck. Been wanting to make this one for a while now:

Truck will be sporting a full factory Xtreme kit with an SS front bumper and Cal-Vu mirrors. The hood will be a carbon fiber piece from VIS racing and the roof is recieving a one-off carbon fiber insert that will fit betweent he factory rain gutters. A Leer tonneau cover will be given a custom treatment of carbon fiber and paint.

Suspension will be QA1 adjustables in front, Z85 rear springs with billet blocks and QA1 shocks. Belltech sway bars front and rear will keep the body roll in check.

Brakes are going to be from Wilwood while the wheels are 20" Bonspeed Malibu 6's.

The interior is going to recieve some changes in the way of new door panels, center console, iPad and additional equipment from Hertz/Audison.

The engine will be rocking an STS turbo kit with intercooler and super modulation efan. The transmission will recieve billet servos and Royal Purple synthetics. The rear end will be beefed up and will also recieve Wilwood brakes.

Want to thank the Wolfpack and SSK for their continued support, as well as my friends at and Auto Radio Stereo in Sacramento for all their help and support thus far.

This is going to be a project where we can develop new products for the 355 and show their performance in the real world as well as on the showroom floor. This truck will be driven, beaten, and bruised constantly and is the ideal platform for a performance oriented 355 truck.

I hope everyone enjoys it and will be on the lookout soon for some new gear for the 355. For those interested, I'm always looking for new shops and companies to work with who have a passion for the hobby and want to develop new products to help both their business, and the community grow. If you are interested, please feel free to send me and email or PM and I will reply ASAP.

Thank you.

More parts. Moar power.

Snow Performance Stage 2 water/meth injection kit. Gonna start spraying alcohol by the gallon into the intake to cool the boost charge and add some safety. Still undecided on if I'm using my Turbosmart Eboost2 to control it, or Snow's own electronics.

Going to kick it in above 7psi and turn the boost up until was make 450rwhp.
Good call! Are you going to inject straight alcohol or a water mixture? I inject blue washer fluid and have had really good luck with it.

Those Snow Performance nozzles are nice. What size will you be running?
Good stuff! Meth is just what the doctor ordered!

Does your kit have a filter on it? I probably sound like a broken record (said it a few times on here), but those nozzles are easy to plug. Drop a little piece of anythng in the tank and your day might be over. AEM sells a pre-pump filter for ~$28.

Looking forward to seeing the outcome of all this. Your truck seems to be getting even more awesome by the minute! Keep it up! :salute:
