Not at all...I'm just playing like they used to on the Price is Right. If you guys all guess too high...I win!

Seriously though...don't know much about turbos, but the rear end will rob some power.

I'm gonna guess 1040.

I got a T-Shirt for finding the catch can.

I'm going to say 1280 to the wheels.

Are we guessing horse power or torque?

Tune for the bigger turbos... And then put some miles and heat cycles on the trans and diff, and then see what he can do with boost and fuel... C-16...117 octane race fuel...

When I get back we'll finish the nitrous install and see what we see...

My prediction... ... Race fuel and nitrous ( Probably a 150 wet shot )

Hmmm... Taking guesses here...

Feel free to post up... Anybody....A prize... Not yet determined to the winner... Closest without going over...

Just to make sure there is some interest... Last year I gave away a Henderson Performance Technology T-shirt and offered up a 5th of Crown Royal...so feel free to post up your best guess...

So Far...

Garcmol... 1430
carbon8... 1130
Mr Twisty... 1234
SRT10KLLR... 1080
Dangeruss... 1040
Happy Pappy... 1280
Kyle.Gilmour... 1287
rjdapilmoto... 1450
z28camaro2471... 1102
mlee... 1041
Tag Ur It... 1042 (editable for obvious reasons) he has the power... he can even go back and edit quoted material
PQ...

PQ, pick another number.... 1280 is taken... I realize it might have been the alcohol induced blurry vision... but Happy Pappy got that one already...


To clarify for the drunks in here... this is a guess with no scientific merit whatsoever... as to the best WAG (wild ass guess) of my more or less final RWHP (rear wheel horse power) number after the tune, the boost increase, the new fuel system, and adding a (probable 150 wet shot, maybe 200) shot of nitrous to the mix...

How much boost is dependant on the injectors and flow capacity... We are changing out the fuel system, for the Aeromotive Stealth 1000 system... This has the regulator on the return line with the boost sense input... so that 60 psi of fuel is 60 psi of fuel... regardless of the intake pressure... To save you time searching... we have 93 lb/hr @ 60 psi injectors in the car right now...

We will boost until we reach the maximum comfortable fuel capacity of the injectors, or until we run out of fuel... Then we'll add the wet shot on top of it all... -8 supply line for fuel and -6 return... new fuel rails...

You all do of course realize that that with turbos Robert can adjust the final results and fix the contest...
