Road Trip, bringing home project 930

Determined not to make this a three year ordeal, I am heading out tonight (to beat the snow storm coming my way) from Rochester Hills Michigan to Speed Werks in Thomasville North Carolina. In fairness to Speed Werks they have not had the car the whole time it spent almost two years with John Truman and I don't want to discuss that, I am happy the car is finally done it is a great Christmas present.

Check out this link for some photos see LP 930 tab

Here is a description of what has been done to the car. It was signed off by Drake from Motec East, he also did the tuning. The car makes 568 RWHP at 1 bar and the torque numbers are equally staggering making over 400lbft at just 4400 RPM and pushes north of 540lbft, I will post the dyno sheets soon.
