When are you going to pick it up? If it's on the weekend I'd like to come down and see you take her for a spin.

Don't know. October and most of November is booked up for me. I'm hoping early December. Of course, you can go back and drive it after each step .

Sound good. Between you and OOLIE there should be some really good feed back.

Haven't done one in a while. The last one was in Jan. and we did 350 RWHP at 4.5 psi. I've used my logs to do a "road dyno" and it had me at closer to 360 after Vince did some tweaking and a little under 400 RWHP at 6 psi. The 6 psi just wasn't reliable (would lean out after a long pull or a few quick back-to-back runs). Once we get the fuel issue worked out we will probably try 9-10 psi before the engine comes apart. If my calculations are correct that should put us in the 490-530 range (the new differential makes it a little hard to estimate).

That is sick!! So there would be extra costs associated with the kit if you want to go beyond 6psi?

Tracy doesn't have the new pump yet, so I don't think he knows how much extra it will be. With that you should be able to do 9-10 psi without issue I would think. I would probably try even further, but since we are going to drop the engine to do the cams we might as well work on the rotating assembly. The forged rods are good, but they are forged to size. That leave hair-line cracks that will eventually get bigger over time. The new ones will be much better for high boost (probably 25+ psi, not that I'll ever go that high). He will also put in forged pistons that lower the compression ratio, so that will make it safer. All told, I have no idea yet what it is going to cost. But if all you are looking for is some extra power then the basic kit with the new fuel pump should be plenty.

Yes that is more then plenty, don't want to start tearing the engine apart. I will be following your progress and hopefully by the time I pay of my car next year I should be able to afford this
