I have in the past. It was good for 570 WHP. Lot of variables to that . I wouldn't advise pushing it. I had a real solid Short block under the hood and a smart tune with a really conservative rev limit.

i agree, i just put down 622whp on 65lb injectors (injectors are for sale btw)

Reasonably these days you can get a fuel system capable of 600-650whp for around $800-1000.... the one thing not to go chincy on when boosting is the fuel system. That is your saving grace.

Never try to save a buck on the fueling to these motors.........KABOOM is in your future. When in doubt......whip it out, the check book that is.

just my $.02

Sure, what you are planning now is adequate, but you WILL, and i repeat....WILL want more. Just do it and get it over with.

With my E-Force S/C with 52# injectors, LT headers and axle back I was running out of fuel. I installed a ZL1 fuel pump and 72# injectors. It's running fine now with 546/rwhp. It's on an LS3.
