Well done sir but as far as I'm concerned this thread is not quite done. I still want to see a few passes and an in-car freeway pull with that V12 screaming!  Then and only then can you put a pin in it. Here's to 9000 rpm and beyond!

It goes to 11. 11 is better than 10 and vastly better than 9 by two points ;)
I think MKE pointed that out somewhere along this build.
I agree tho that this is not done until the fat la.... I mean the blue Ferrari sings

Early on, wasn't there a projection of >900 HP? Any plans for a dyno session to dial it in?

Well, here's 9k on the last blip, then it ran out of gas so the fun ended.  Its fixed so its just turning now....really boring.  As I said, when there is something post worthy I'll pass it on.

Hell yeah! I'm so happy you got this thing wrapped up and hope you enjoy driving it as much as I've enjoyed the build!

Amazing.  However, I for one will only be satisfied when I see an in-dash cam of it blitzing 2022 Ferraris and Porsches around a track at 9k rpm.
 

Although, I'd settle for you taking Lana on Sunday afternoon cruise and mashing the throttle at an unsuspecting moment, and posting a vid of said moment.  She has been quite a saint for the last, oh, 15ish years.

Yes, dyno day once the tune is roughed in a bit and I trust it enough to drive to the dyno or I get my dyno up and running, which ever comes first.

The Dynomation5 software was consistently telling me 900+, which just I liked to here but just seemed to high with the headers designed for street/autocross use and cams timed to match.  When DM6 came out I "lost" 80hp....it says 840 which honestly seems more realistic.

Were I to build new headers, adjust the stack lengths and probably roll the cams a little to retune for 10-10.5k, 900 is probably doable but this is a street car and I'm tired of working on it so whatever the current setup delivers will have to do.  I can live with 800hp....or add nitrous and I set the pistons and rings up to easily deal with a 250hp shotcheeky

wow, that video is telling.  It wants to rev so quickly and oh the sweet sweet V12 siren scream...  This is awesome.

I've forgotten just how compact  the 308 was. And with that big motor in back you really do have a very special Ferrari.  
  Well done!!

Now you're just showing off.  ;-)  It's a very rare Jaguar that can park without marking its territory.
