Call it project Sniper, project Nitemare, or just bat poop crazy, but Scott Vanderschoor’s twin-turbo, Viper V10 powered Mustang project has officially transitioned from garage-bound dream to functioning automobile status and we have the video to prove it.
The link was sent to us by Scott Clark (DieselGeek on the forums) who spends some of his spare time doing what he’s doing in this video, tuning and dialing in fuel injection setups on cars that range from fairly tame to, well, this.
Vanderschoor, it needs to be mentioned is a home builder, and he performed the work on every aspect of this amazing project. He’s been providing photo updates throughout the build on the BangShift.com forums.
This is a quickie video that shows the car’s first fire up and Clark establishing a baseline to have the car idle and behave itself well enough to get it onto the dyno rollers and really put the wood to that big V10.
We’re excited to see this monster get all the hiccups out of its system and start making numbers on the chassis dyno. This project has been a long term affair for Vanderschoor and the amount of work that it has entailed, like moving the firewall back nearly half a foot, is really amazing and speaks to his dedication to this car.
Consider this an appetizer. We’re going to take you through the very fun final steps of this project in a couple of video installments. Thanks to “the Scotts” for getting the video!
