You don't believe there are HP heads flowing over 420cfm making power?

Never said it was rocket science, but you can't just throw some parts on any old short block and go make big power.
Yeah...but from what under stand he throw them on but never dyno the motor. So how would you know what the motor likes. If on the dyno and the heads didn't perform you would know why. Most of the time when you move up in head flow it requires allot of other changes, cam change and who knows what else it's going to like.

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.

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'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.
