That's a different Hall setup. He did it a couple different ways. Like I 
said without a tank it will be slow, but a tank is not hard. The airbag 
set up he did with ride tech has no limitation on track or street and is 
used on many after market muscle cars bot street and track.

It is a bolt on replacement.
