    Well new to the site but figured you would be interested in what we have going on here. I am building this vehicle for BJB which i assume will sign up here any day now also. After blowing up his stock 6.1 and ASM blower combo with 14k miles we decided to do an all out build and leave no stone unturned. The goal is to have a 9 second jeep and still be a nice daily driver on Michigans sunny days.

    The build is as lists below..
    HHP 426 7.0 with every bulletproof option availible
    MSD Ignition Coils
    Kooks headers catless jethot coated
    B&B exhaust with custom tip
    Vortech YSI-Trim Supercharge w/ massive blowoffr
    Innovate Data logging and gauge setups
    Walsch racing intercooler (anodized black)
    NX Dual nitrous setup with carbon fibre bottles
    Meticulous Fabrications NX spray bar (anodized black)
    CPR Fuel System (from pumps to injectors.. the works)
    Renntech Modified Transmission
    Carolina Driveshafts (front and rear)
    9" ford rearend with ARB locker
    Brembo 8 Piston front brake setup
    Safecraft fire suppresion system (can never be too safe)
    Meticulous Fab custom Rollbar setup
    and lots more....

    And well that is majority of whats going to be put into this. The first set of pictures are of the teardown.. and well a few missing parts from an 07 with 14kmiles.

    Please wait to post any commnets till i am done posting more pics and info. I will let you know when.. (give me like 20 min thanks)

    Well the 9 inch came back first from Western Differential in AZ. It turned out great and looks great with the aluminum center section and all. I utilizes an ARB ai locker which will make it very streetable

    Also got the renntech transmission back and hopefully it will hold up to what we will throw at it.

    Also we recieved th Vortech YSI supercharger which should be plenty for the boost numbers we are looking for... And also theres a pic of the new blowoff.

    The 8 piston Brembos are also a great addition to the vehicle and besides look amazing will be put to there full use with BJB driving.

    Also a picture of the great job Jet Hot did on th Kooks headers

    And well the nitrous system. We are going to be running a dual NX system. One system will be designated into fo the intercoolers and one for the engine iteself. The engine system will be a true direct port system built into a fully custom fabricated intake by BES. The intercooler system will cool the front with the custom Metiulous Fabrications spraybar and with 4 nozzles into the air/water intercooler located in the engine. Both bottles are carbon fibre with bottle heaters and remote openers for convinience. We are using the NOS launcher to control everything

    Also the last pic is of bottle location for the fire suppression system. Very cheap insurance for what will beinto this.

    Ok done for now.. (thanks to all who posted before this point :bang:)

    The only part that is stock is the bracketry. All the brackets were cut off then welded onto a jigged up 9".. so no not a hybrid in my opinion, just a straight up 9" in a Jeep.

    please keep us updated, this is an awesome project. you dont think a s/c'd 7.0L will make for a 9second car without using NOS?

    I think it will be possible forsure.. but since its so torn apart why not toss it in there just to make sure.. kind of uncharted territories so far

    thats true. its not like a nitrous setup is a bank breaker anyway. considering all the other mods your putting in.

    Thanks for waiting... i knew there would be a few, ha. And yes we will be taking it to Wheel to Wheel to use their AWD dyno and have some promissing things coming tuning wise fo some impressive numbers.

    yes.. very small
    No we got them uncoated then sent them to jet-hot after welding in additional bungs for sensors.

    Mat, welcome to the "C"...

    Are you a Vendor so to speak? Please email me at [email protected]ion.com and I will send you our Supporting Vendor packet.

    Now, down to play. lol

    Awsome build you have going on there. I think you should have NO issues getting to the single digits in the 1/4 with all of those goodies... My goal is 10's, NO roll cage and NO diet. hehe Will be adding a 100 -125 shot of giggle gas.

    Man, I thought ASM's Marketing strategy was to bash GSM and swear that their S/C kit does not blow up engines? dahahahahahahahaha Guess they are eating CROW now. hehehehe

    I do feel for the owner though as I have been there done that.

    Can't wait to see the Jeepster finished and on the road.

    Ron
