Yeah but they have to be pretty quick changes, you can't spend half hour between pulls. So at most 5 min between pulls

275 Bob.... My guess is based on Levnubin's numbers with a built motor, 20+psi, water injection, and a proper spark table (which put down ~300 whp)....I'd say you'll be over stock power Have you street tuned it much since taking ownership? If not, you could definitly pull some timing since the last I knew Chris was running the diyautotune base map or close to it...

i tried adjusting the tune on it myself but i dont know that much about it, so it was a little up then a little down trying to find a good point but i ended up going back to Chris's tune. the only major thing that ive done since i bought the car was to open up the air flow at the intake manifold. where chris had it it would pull like crazy. I mean when you hit peak boost you are back in the seat, but the car wouldnt stay on when i went into neutral. Now that is opened up its not as strong but once the engine is hot it stays on. thus this is what im trying to fix at the dyno day i want the strong pulls but i want it to run while im at a stop light.

LOL built motor doesn't give you more HP and neither does water injection. And I thought he had a bigger turbo then phil

So who will have the highest and lowest numbers? I think I have lowest covered and miatamike for the highest. I really doubt I will break 210whp and 200ft lbs

Oh yeah... and start paying off the daily :( lol

No ****, but it allows you to run more boost / pull more timing without the risk of detonation....his motor is built too, but phils spark table was probably leaps and bounds more aggressive and he had the WI to help keep his cylinder temps under control to allow him to do it safely.

80 degrees compared to 60 degrees isn't really significant when you take into account that cylinder temps are like 1500 degrees

Why did you put a naca duct on you headlight then if 20deg doesn't make a difference?
