Laughing here, no back yarder is going to throw on a Tiger head package and run out and make 950-1000 hp. they'll have to do exactly what you did, spend some serious money. So I can see why you think like that. I remember your whole build from start to finsh and all the changes you ended up making, not counting the changes you've made this year. There is a big difference in taking off the dyno and actually runing down the track and backing up dyno numbers as you well found out. Took you a few changes to get there. Very serious hp and some serious dollars. That's basically what you've done. I wouldn't use the word easy, better word would be costly, and getting edagucated, on what it takes. Not fooling yourself into thinking it's as simple as bolting on someone induction package.

Default shooting for

steamroller??? thats an Old Prostock size. 14.5x 32. But leaning toward the 10.5x33's
car weighs 3000 lbs atm. got fiberglass doors and lexan widows going on this fall no time right now to do it. should get car down close to 2600.
Et wise should see 9.3-9.5 with this Combo N/A. may throw and Old cheater plate system I got on the shelf after i get it broken in. But all depends if I keep slutting myself at work and taking all the OT. Then little time at track.

didnt know 10.5's were considered steamrollers. But sure once i get it running and dialed in. NP.... Never said i was running race gas either. Your just assuming. If you read my build Im working with E85. Which some do consider pump fuel. But depends on how things go since I not running the Inj unit til i set up the procharger.

I just assumed you would go back to those BIG tires, if you run 10.5 then we'd be on roughly the same size. How much compression you running? I am at 10.97:1

I'll bet I can run faster on a 10.5 tire, their probably 50 lbs lighter. My money would be on Bryan...knowing what both you guys have...I'd say EC don't have enough.

You want to explain this statement? How 420cfm HP do you know of and what kind of power did they make?
How many cnc 450cfm Tigers do you know of and what power did they make? Any track results from them?

By the way I will sale my topend to you or anyone for that matter if you want it. Just send $$ and its yours complete ready to bolt on.
