I can see why you are excited by this project. I am certainly interested in seeing how the turbo works with the 392, not just power wise but street manners. Thinking this will be really sweet set-up all the way around...

This is my first big money car project...most I have done before is simple bolt ons, so this is new ground for me. I already have about 10k in the car with suspension, billet accessories and exhaust. It was a little nerve racking dropping this kind of cash to be the first of 392 TT...but I have a lot of faith in the guys at Arrington.

if so, what the hell did you get for $6k ??

And crack......



I love American muscle cars like a thrice-divorced 45-year old tax attorney loves barely legal coeds. That is to say; passionately, inappropriately and almost certainly inadequately while muttering whispered apologies to the beautiful thing I am probably ruining forever.

When this is done, you should be able to keep up with one of those 2013 Shelby's!

Yeah, I read nothing but good things...considering this was a big jump for me, I went to Martinsville to talk directly with these guys. They are a class act, I was impressed by their shop and by everyone I met. What sold me was the fact that they were as excited as I was to putting this project together.
