Not even close to Porsche’s labor rates. But it came in for an oil change and a few requested checks. Which turned int to spark plugs, and brakes. Porsche recommends plugs every 30k miles.

I’ll know that once the heads are off and I can see the cylinders.

I’ll need to investigate further that was about the time I left. Had to get some food and attended a gun show with some family. My coworkers finished up the car for me.

10 Hennessey 475HPE. Came in for an exhaust leak. Mods included a CAI with longtubes, and Corsa catback (extremes?). It was the last cylinder on the driver side, welds broke loose at the flange. Took about 30mins to get it taken care of due to weld gun in an awkward position. Seems to be a really nice car. Very little is done to the car besides listed mods and obvious graphics. That’s not a criticism, I quite like the slightly sleeper look. Nice car.

15 911 Carrera 4S. A customer of ours checking in on one of his cars at the shop. He was in his new toy and I have to say I love it. It’s gorgeous all blacked out. It has the PDK transmission and man it shifts quick. Sounds pretty good with the stock exhaust. It’s got the steel brakes but the center lock wheels. Interior is quite nice as expected black leather with swede inserts, red stitching, and carbon fiber trim. It also has what looks like the 918 steering wheel. It’s the 3.8L N/A F6 400-430hp. Very impressive for a N/A six banger. Very nice car.

11 Corvette GS. Owner also came to check on another vehicle. I have to say this is the one I’d want from the C6 gen (Z06/ZR1 out of price range duh). Which this is basically a Z06 with an LS3. Only thing I’d like it to have is the heritage package (includes fender stripes) and 13 GS horn button logo. Those two certainly don’t take away from this car. It has OEM ZR1 wheels, and look great on the car. Owner is wanting to mod it and I made a few suggestions and a shop that I’ve been told does good work locally. Apparently there’s a roots style blower for this car for 11 grand which is insane. Recommended a H/C/I/E set up with a tire upgrade, should be a nice combo. Has red leather inserts which complement the silver paint well. Exhaust sounds good, but I’m not sure if it’s factory. Hope to see this car again soon. I think the GS is a good looking see with a lot of potential. Which being priced less than the 2 big brothers it’s a good value. Nice car.

It was nice to see them two. Corvette owner kept trying to get me to drive it, but I couldn’t.

It was more of the situation that if I drove it I knew I’d want it. Which wouldn’t help the Mach 1 at all, and one or more Mustang would have to go. Plus I don’t drink coffee so...

The GS are my favorite Gen 6, just love the Z06 body. The GS LS3 comes with a 2 stage dry sump oiling system and an 11 quart capacity. I've been looking for one since last year...they are few and far between and still holding their value.

Yes sir it’s one reason why I want one. Now if the new ZR1 will drive down the C6 ZR1 then we’ll be doing even better. But I like the heritage package along with the GS horn logo. Then the C7GS is a nice car too.

If I had to choose a GM product right now, the choice would likely go to the Camaro over the Corvette. The ZL1 1LE is a beast.

For this ole school guy the C6 body style suites my taste the best.
If I can get what I want out of the Terminator I'd buy one with low miles. I've been eyeing on 11 with less than 10k miles in Supersonic Blue...only issue is the $38k they want for it.

Ah, I was wondering if the Terminator would have a friend or would be replaced. I like the C6 the best out of the new generations.

I find the timing chain set up interesting. The old twin plug 911’s had a similar configuration with their dual distributors.

I heard that most installers can't get them on the wheel with trashing the edges of the wheel because of their stiff sidewalls..?

It's the huge amount of downforce on the rear spoiler destabilizing the front and causing lift. You are in light speed mode. The Mach is now in hyper flight.

50 miles at less than 50mph is about it although I doubt the BMW driver paid attention to the guide lines.

Can’t confirm or deny it. We aren’t a tire shop so I’m at a loss when it comes to this.

A reliable and trustworthy wheel and tire shop can install any tire that is designed for the correct wheel.

People have made the claim, or excuse, that low profile tires cannot be installed without wheel damage. The truth is, the shop or personnel does not have the knowledge or tools to correctly install the tire.

Just took engine and trans removal to achieve Mach 1 in a Mach 1?
Fascinating.

Less than 50 miles (more like 4-5 max) and under 50.

You now have a Mustang Mach gasser drag car. Welcome to the 1960s era of racing.

The tire shop it’s going to won’t have difficulty when changing it out.
I’ll be getting to install fresh tires on the Mach when she’s nearly road worthy.

I think the only gassers that actually pulled the look off is the 50’s cars. Example: Blasphemi.
