I think CheapBastard has him locked in his garage working on his bike. We have yet to see any pics of the project so hopefully that isn't bad news.

Actually, Devious has been work'n on some sorta supercharger design, and he's in the final stages and has been super busy with that project. I wished it was because he was super trick'n out my bike, but I just sent him stuff to powdercoat fer me, so it's not because of me.

no dfib, the dealer screwed him on their agreed price, and once the dealer got delivery he jacked the price up, way up! :mad:  He's work'n on tune'n his Lotus Elise now, said he's look'n to git close to 400hp!!! :eek:

HOWDY!

I have been chasin' my tail for the past few months, and just came up for air. I will try to catch up on all the new posts and be a regular here over the next week.

I have been working (investing), building engines (bike, car, boats), working on the final details for a new supercharger I am bringing to market in 2007 (modular design for bikes through big block V8's), and helping my brother build boats - www.rpmpowerboats.com (see the latest issue of Hot Boat magazine or the Feb issue of Powerboat magazine).

I spent the past few weekends on my flowbench/manometers and hope to get the 1050 Speed Triple head on it next weekend. My porting tools are sitting ready to go to work on it.

Racecomp - The final design is done, and the molds/castings are in the works.

CheapBastard - The coated parts look GREAT on the bike. Better than I imagined.

Dfib - The Shelby arrived, but the dealer got greedy and wanted ANOTHER $10K... I told him to get stuffed. So I bought a Lotus Elise and a spare engine that is apart, ported, and will be turbocharged and intercooled with Laminova air/water charge-cooler cores (and later supercharged as a test bed for a new supercharger design).

Av8tor - I completely agree. The Elise is stupid fun, and is quicker through the twisties than the Speed Triple - by a long shot.

and just so you all know, Devious did a stand-up job on the coated parts. ;D Many thanks Devious, I'm not gonna shame your workmanship by the crappy photos I posted on Trat, will git some better one's to post up. ;) One last thing, I apologize fer my impatience, Devious has been one busy feller, and was dicked around alot by the boyz in brown. He had to go thru quite a bit over the past couple of weeks to get me my parts, including replacing my brake lever that was damaged by UPS :mad: with his own lever. Just wanted to share that he is without a doubt, a stand-up feller. ;D
