When the car showed up in Colorado the new owner had to get it to pass the Denver air quality dyno testing and was not able to do so. Car runs great, looks great and is a blast but his tuner was unable to get it to pass so after a few weeks he gave up. My personal opinion is that he really wanted to concentrate on rebuilding a 70s Firebird and had lost some of his enthusiasm for the Sol.How did that happen? It's still looking good!
This is so unfortunate and so unnecessary. The problem is the person involved with tuning most of these V/8 conversions is stuck using outdated and primitive tuning software. The person doing these V/8 swap tunes also just isn't very good at tuning, and you can only access a very small amount of tables even if you buy the software yourself (LS1 Edit, an old program almost no tuners use anymore). Very much like Vince at Trifecta, he may be good at writing the software, but not smart enough to know he shouldn't try to use it to tune cars himself. Vince doesn't let anyone else use his program because they'd see how horrible it also is compared to the competition. These V/8 swaps shouldn't have these problems and shouldn't be running on this software.When the car showed up in Colorado the new owner had to get it to pass the Denver air quality dyno testing and was not able to do so.

Very nice car, could you provide further pics and specs? What were you asking?
I like your wheels as well.
