Depends on if he has an Auto or Manual... With the Auto the stock suspension does just fine at 470. If the Op switches to MT ET Street or better he will hook w/ no problems. 20" Nittos will not hook at that HP.

We have a couple of autos running 1.5X 60' with zero suspension mods. The car squats nicely on stock springs and leaves stright. I will say hooking at this HP may require the JRE posi mod to keep from spinning one tire.
