Just adding options. I expected at least a teaser by now.

Still waiting on my Resident Pissimist title.

Thought you liked pushy.

I guessed rods because this is a small turbo making big torque early on stock rods. Basically a textbook rod killer. It isn't a giant turbine making power at the top end.

I will be stoked if he keeps running this forever, but after seeing rods bend at 220wtq I am a wee bit pessimistic.

Me and Aidan had a bet. I'd say you owe 18psi a dollar, talking about you'd beat his mustang.
Not!

Pretty sure you said 112+....

Either way not slow. Have you weighed the car to bench race with?

This sounds dangerously close to a complement, well done Greg!

hahaha NICE!

well, looks like we were more right, but still 110 is stout and I'd say you're definitely at 250ish. maybe even a wee bit over.

dont think this setup will do 112+ unless you crank it up more tho

worthy of cats tho

I'm sure it's not a 20+whp difference, but looking at the logs of the dyno day vs. at the strip, the MAT was about 15 degrees hotter on average over the pulls at the strip. I'd love to see what the trap would look like during a 50 degree night event. Then again my rods might end up like bananas.
