Around 8:30pm my silver bullet from Hennessey Performance was delivered.

Not a scratch on her. Perfect condition. All the graphics are very professional (on the engine, doors, under the hood, tail gate, etc.)

I was intstructed by the driver to let the truck warm up a bit before I drove it. I strapped myself in, depressed the clutch, turned the key, I heard the massive fuel pump turn on and pressed the little red button. She cranked right up. The sound of the 3" exhaust was great. The whiring of the turbo's gave me goose bumps. The windows started to fog a little, it was around 62 degrees or so, so I turned on the A/C-Defroster, everything worked great. I turned the lights on, and noticed the Fuel Economy gauge red 2.3mpg :0 I reset the gauge. I notced a new computer thingy mounted under the radio (still not sure what that is). After everything was warmed up. I left my parking lot slowly. I quickly realized this truck has SERIOUS horse power. The turbos kick in QUICK. I'm definately going to have to work on my reflexes or put an automatic in it :) :) It'll get away from you in a hurry. I'm glad I have 4 spare tires for it :).

It's a blast to drive. Whoever said you can never have too much horsepower, hasn't ever driven "My Silver Bullet" :) :)

I'll post some pictures in the morning once it is light out.

Awesome Craig! - We are headed back to Houston from a trade show in Indy today. I will call you tomorrow to check in. Your boost controller is located under the radio. Instructions are in the glove box. Drive it around on the 7 psi that it makes with the boost controller off (which is how it is set right now) for a while and get used to it. Last week on 12 psi your truck spun the tires pretty violently in 4th gear at 2800 rpm.

Have fun man and talk to you soon.

PS - if anyone wants to know - Craig's silver bullet is his slower street truck....
