Pressurizing the meticulously prepped heads is a Bellotech turbo system. The system starts out with custom-fabricated exhaust manifolds with 1.75-inch primaries that each position one FasTrax T54 turbo. Three-inch intercooler pipe leads to air-to-liquid intercoolers featuring Spearco cores, then on to twin intake manifolds that Bellotech created in sheetmetal and then through custom 65 mm throttle bodies and into the combustion area. Boost is regulated by a Tial wastegate and A'PEXi AVC-R boost controller.
Fueling the fire is a high-tech multi-stage injection set-up with 12 injectors falling under the control of a Haltech E6A computer. The Haltech name is certainly becoming popular as the E6-series box was the preferred choice on last month's cover car, along with many of the top Diamond Star racers we featured in that issue. Eddie uses his E6 to control 12 50-lb/hr injectors mounted on custom Bellotech rails. Four fuel pumps and two regulators use -8 lines to supply the go juice. Lighting the fire are three direct-fire MSD 7AL-2 boxes, an MSD coil, Vitek plug wires and NGK plugs.

On the Rampage Motorsports dyno in Queens, the pride of Stuttgart spun the rollers to the tune of 960 hp and 782 lbs-ft of torque. The dyno pulls were made with boost set at an eye-opening 30 psi. On the strip boost is regulated to a bit more conservative 20 psi. The Bellotech Porsche delivers power through a stock transmission with an RSR flywheel and Clutch Specialties clutch being the only upgrades.
Amazingly, the suspension section of our tech sheet reads stock on everything from the shocks and springs to the rear end. In the rear, 16x8-inch Forgeline aluminum is home to the grippy Toyo RA-1 tires of the 255/50 variety. At the nose, 17x8-inch Forgelines are joined by 225/45 T1-s Proxes street radials. Both sets of tires are DOT-approved and allow Eddie to run in-or to put it better-totally break-off all comers in the Street Class. With a terminal velocity of 160 mph, Eddie decided to upgrade to Wilwood discs all around; quite a move considering factory issues on the 911 are Brembos.
Under the body and chassis banner, the car runs a stock body save for a carbon-fiber hood. The fresh white paint was laid by Star Autobody in Mt. Vernon, New York while the graphics were made by Ruff Signs & Graphics. Inside, a 12-point chrome-moly roll cage constructed by Rosado Racing protects Eddie and adds rigidity to the frame-twisting German speedster. A Momo race-style bucket seat and RCI belts keep Eddie situated as the horizon moves up and down in his windshield en route to his multi-wheelie single-digit e.t.s.
The chassis was a stock proposition all the way into the 9s. But after its super-low, nine-second blast that changed. After a short hiatus, there were rumors of an underlying chassis set-up. Eddie designed a back-half chassis which was not used to reduce curb weight but allowed easier access to the engine. He discovered the car went from pulling wheelies in two gears to lifting the wheels in three gears. However, the 911 was soon at the threshold of the eights.
