Was that an Extreme type van, or a Super Street van? Looked like a console of some kind in front of the wall.

looks like an extreme, but the console could be an "oem equivalent" which would put it in the SS category.
cant wait to see what it does.

Console is less than 2 cu and is legal for ss 1-2. I'll be pulling that out as every astro owner I've talked to says that it hurts the wave.

This used to be McVays old van roflamo!

i cant see how that console would help the overall aspect of air movement, in an extreme vehicle yes but the dash is in tact so yeah... well man good luck it should be a fun project!

Got the Beast almost ss 1-2 legal. Healiners done,carpets being laid,center console has been removed, door panels need to be redone yet as they are too thick for oem replacement.

Yes I remember the numbers it did and that's why we came looking for it. We were slightly louder back then. When I found out what that he wasn't competing that day, I sandbagged a lot, just enough to win first. I remember asking him to go get it but he declined. I sandbagged just in case that we would meet up again but that never happened. I don't travel 6 hours to take second place, lol.
With the bigger amps out now, you will definitely break the records of that van. Best of luck.
