I figured I would go ahead and make the "official" post. Got the parts list today, I will be dropping "Bianca" off on Tuesday to begin the transformation. I asked for them to provide me with updates so I can keep the community updated too.

I am super excited about getting this done...but I am trying to stay calm until she is finished...but I am feeling like a kid in a candy store right now and can't wait until she is done.

Wish me luck! ;)

i saw it - on my way to kill your whole family with a stapler.

anyways, i honestly didn't see a PDF so my questions could have possibly been answered.

most people will have two questions immediately upon opening this thread:

(1) where are you taking it ??
(2) what are you going to do for tuning ??

My wife loves company! Come on by...LOL

Sweet and sour chicken tonight for dinner! OM NOM NOM!!

To answer the questions,
1. Arrington Performance. The same guys who did U.F.O.'s first 392 supercharged build.
2. Just like U.F.O. I am getting a 2010 PCM swap

I reposted the build sheet, omitting my personal info this time to keep all the creepy stalkers at bay...groupies are fine though. I will also be getting updates from Arrington to include photos which I will happily post on here for every else's enjoyment.

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.

is it safe to say that you spent $6K in suspension upgrade ??

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

Man, I am trying...but they just keep giving those mosters more HP!!



8WOW!!!!!!!! Way to go. You might need to buy some new drawers after your first test drive . Thats gonna be a badd MOFO.
I already have seat covers on to protect the white leather...I just won't wear pants on the first drive! LOL



when is the expected time for this beast to be finished?
They said 30 days...so I drop her off on the 29th of May...so hopefully by June 28th



Congrats. Hard to beat the reputation of Arrington. Can't wait to see the results.
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.
