Show of hands: who believes we can build a completely insane Time Attack Honda Fit in time for SEMA? That's a tough one because even we're questioning whether we've bit off more than we can chew. Fortunately, Leigh Guarnieri from Extreme Dimensions has done most of the dirty work for us. And when we say "most" we mean all of it. We don't know how he finds time between eating his broccoli pasta and being the creepy dude on MySpace, but he managed to get our car stripped down, make a body kit for it, and order 90-percent of the parts for us. Bravo.

We're closing in on just one more month to our deadline after we picked the Fit up from Duke's Rollcages where Terry Wyrember had fabbed up a sick rollcage for us. As of press time, it is sitting at Jimenez Bros. Custom (JBC) paint shop where they're spraying the engine bay and interior in BASF gold. That's right, gold, holmes. By the time they're done, we'll have roughly three weeks to tow the car to Hasport in Arizona where Brian Gillespie is going to drop in the Brian Crower-built and stroked K20 motor, Carbonetic tranny internals from Takumi Project, Full Race exhaust manifold, and a host of parts from Acura, like a five-lug conversion and TSX Brembo brakes.

Then back to Duke's it goes to have them mount up the HKS GT3037 turbo, GT wastegate, then weld up piping for the intercooler and stainless Ti exhaust. Somewhere along the line, we'll need to drop in RC Engineering injectors, fuel system and NX nitrous and N-tercooler. JBC gets the car again to finish up the airbrushing on the outside and S.I.X Autoworks is going to cut up some roll call decals to represent all the companies that have shed blood and sweat into this machine. Next, comes the very lengthy task of tuning the F-Con V Pro, in which the master tuners over at SP Engineering have offered their services. Last, is the suspension that we're going to rock from Tein and custom Volk Racing wheels with BFG stickies.

What's the date and time again? Tick tock. Tick tock. We'll be ready with the car and 500hp. The question is, will you be ready for it?
