Finally went to the track last weekend and first ever dyno this weekend thanks to zzp's gathering. I'm filled with glee - doin car things!
I have decent video footage of the track and some lousy clips from saturday I'll put in later but just to kick off, here's the dyno results

I really wish I got there much earlier. There's some solid 380ish hp cars. People know how to build m90 setups these days. I'm guessing no turbo cars unless one or more of these were mild builds so this makes me look like a hero

508hp 526 ft-lb on zzp's mustang dyno 80f outside

I'm trying to resolve what roller speed correlates to what rpm to see what that pull means to the engine. The gear ratio is easy enough to figure but the torque converter doesn't really make a solid coupling so I need to at least know how much slip there is. I'm hoping to get logs from the dyno from tim if he has them saved and that might help some. From the graph, it looks like the dyno pull started already past the peak torque number. Also it's not really rolling over that hard on top end horsepower. I'm not done

Looks up TEP Stage 2 transmission -

Time for stage 5 TEP!  Quit slackin'!

I think I'm feeling a tinge of jealousy here.

How visible is the FGT supercharger from inside the car?  Would a giant hood scoop block your view?

It's kinda funny. I had to make a case for myself before when I got some of the rare GMR parts from Paul's contact - presumably because only people making big power need a 1" chain and there's only so many and a max effort M90 build doesn't really require that. My case was that it's a heavier car than a w-body so I needed a little tiny bit more for the same power. I had no plan at the time for making 500+hp with a twin screw blower. Nooow I'm back to having to worry a little bit about it again. The transaxle should hold together but there's no guarantees in this game

If done tactfully, a cowl could be decently unobtrusive. Eventually I'll get to that but that's gonna be something I need real pro help with.

Looks like the cowl is going to be pretty tall once you account for clearances.  Maybe you cold do something like the ZR1 hood and have an engine cover that sticks through the hood.  I'm looking forward to seeing the finished result.  Or the first mockup.
