First thing is that this car suspension geometry is different from the original car therefore it was a learning curve but he is almost there, it sure looks easy but the amount of hours/work and frustration can't be explained specially if you are an army of one.

That pass was a 22 psi of boost and no the cylinder heads are not welded, 35 psi is available but has not been implemented yet, Bello is old school and 25 psi will be good enough for him, for me, more is always better .

The life span of that particular engine is very impressive if you consider the type of work that the engine does, I will never forget the time that he drove to the Texas mile, ran 3 passes at over 230mph after that hr drove to the 1/4 mile track and made 3, 9 second passes and then drove back to South Florida.

Bello's second last name is "Changes" I have never seen someone make so many changes in a motor in aims to squeeze as much hp as possible.

The video is nice but the goal here is to break the 9.16, once I see the rear bumper touching the ground and a 8 second pass then this mission will be completed.............. Easy said than done!!
22lbs,sorry I don't buy it, BS.,show me the logged data.,cheers, Stefan.
