Greddy T-88 manifold
Veilside Teardrop exhaust
AEM (finally found a good Unit AND Tuner..)
575 @ 19lbs pump so far, tuning incomplete
New dyno, after correcting some MAJOR mistakes in the fuel system.
610 hp @ 20lbs. Pump 93 , 11.5 a/r , Outside Temp 99 degrees , Humidity > 94%
Methanol and Race gas Tuning soon.... Thanks ALAMO MOTORSPORTS, for correcting the problems with the initial setup!
I think it's a valid question, one I asked myself in the begining. If 600hp (my target based on similar questions) , was near the top, all I had to decide then was how to get to that figure w the best drivability, response, power under the curve, and cost efficiency without sacrificing long term reliablity( using a stock block).
Since I started work on my car (2yrs ) better solutions have become available including 3.2 and 3.4 strokers (@ reasonable cost), dual BB turbos, VVTI heads, ect. I think my next round of mods., I'll be shooting for 700whp on pump 93, with decent low and mid range response....
You just have to ask the basic questions first to get there, I think.
