I guess worse case scenario, I break one and replace them with something designed for pure racing.... that will handle the HP torque....
They basically said they would guarantee that particular design for 1200TQ/1200HP and even a 1.3x 60' time. They said they have tested them much further, but that is the "guarantee" level. Any more TQ/HP or 1.2x and faster 60' times...

Thanks Bruce, I feel better now, you had me worried a little, but I won't have the hp or torque to reach that limit. My injectors alone will limit me to about 900 rwhp.

Only 900 RWHP? Holy cow !!! That'll be a rocketship.
I bet you Brandi will still have great street manners with that setup.


I bet you are going to have a revolving line of rear tires from TireRack...

Well, GM and GMPP finally more or less came through...

my new GMPP spoiler finally arrived... only ten months after I ordered it... and it's black... but I'll paint it and that'll be fine... I'm just glad to have it prior to the fest....

Thanks, Russ did that for me... As for other updates, my Turbo kit should have shipped yesterday... the shortblock will ship Monday, Tuesday at the latest... I overheard the phone conversation... They are doing the final hone and ring cutting and then will put it ll together, and ship it out...It should be about two to three days in transit, so by Friday at the latest, It should be in Coreys capable hands...
