Howard made a visit from IL to VA.

So Howard stopped by in his OM617 Powered X-MOD 110 that he drove out from IL to VA.
That engine with the M-IP was very fast.
It has a lift and looks huge with the wheels and tall with the RTT.

Great to hear you guys met up!

What was your impression of his OM617? With the lift and roof rack its certainly pushing some wind around!

All in the front line up run and drive.
Two of the three in the background are on the list to be running this summer.

Driving a 110 with a 3" lift was a new experience.
With those wheels and tires the handling was very different.
All our vehicles have really tight suspensions now that we have replaced the shock and suspension bushings and that rear ball joint.
Howard's ride had some suspension play that keeps the driver alert.

With the M-IP the engine runs completely different.
Howard was keeping a close eye on his boost and EGT.
I think the water/meth injection would help out if needed.
He has a raised air intake and a full length intercooler that go a long way to reduce the charge temp.
It's safe to say when you stomp it, it rolls some coal out the exhaust...
Lots of get up and go.
