Thanks and LOL. You know I was a little dissapointed myself . Really it goes to show what a proper tire setup will do. I mean it was 30 degrees out on those DRs and it hooked right up when I hit it in 3rd. 1st and 2nd might have been a different story

Haha well depends on how much power your gonna make man. I'd run some 555Rs as I hear they are good in the inclement weather if need be. The Mickey Thompsons I got on here now are just excellent.

Yeah, if you plan to go with Dr's, and still want to drive the car often, and have good traction, but don't plan on driving in heavy rain, the 555r's are probably the best bet. That's my tire of choice within the next few months. Some people drive them in the rain too and say they are fine, but I don't want to risk it.

That would most likely be the 555Rs. I have seen some people get like 12-15k out of a set which is great for a drag radial. The Mickey's im running are so soft they are about 6k mile tires but they just grab and go so its one or the other.

Food for thought the guy I got my welds from made a touch over 800 to the tire like myself he went to 05Rs on a 20" rim he said it sucked. Major reason you can hook it up on smaller rims is the tire compound and the sidewall.

Ill be right at 500hp to the wheels after this setup. My stock tires were better than these.

I was also looking at Nitto NT05. They are the street version but look like drag radials.

Donno i need to do some serious looking into tires. Nitto has like 6 different versions of 3 tires haha

Ah I'd just get some Michilen Pilot Super Sports. TBH I made 492 to the tire cam only. Granted I probably didn't make as much torque as you will with the blower but I'm sure you'd be able to hook it up with them. 650+ you need a DR.

Sweet, yea im doing the stage 1 kit, then will jump to stage 3, then do the JRE Cam package on top and will be about that 650RWHP. But thats long long term.

You still planning on the new motor?

Yeah good plan there man. I could hook it up on my 22s cam only so you'll most likely be good.

Myself I have a long term goal as well. First and foremost I'd like to fix my fueling which will be done in a few weeks and be ready to lay down a time, Probably not a great one since im going to be babying it out of the hole on the stock driveline.

Motor is in the works because I have seen failures even with proper fuel and meth and 15+lbs of boost is a lot on the stock bottom. Right now its a toss up between the motor and a GForce 9". I ordered those decals for the car hopefully won't be cheesy if I put them on LOL.

Agreed man it was very cheap and the minimal amount of time I spend driving the car now its ok. I'll be dropping the fuel pump in shortly so I can go baby go but beyond that I have plans but I also would like to purchase another project soon.

Got a wicked deal here on the forum on a squash fuel pump. Hopefully that will come this week and I'll be dropping the car off if the weather holds out this week/weekend and have it back next week ready to go.

Squash Pump, Aeromotive Fuel Regulator, Hobbs Switch, ID850s etc.

Good thing you choose the Squash.... I think you would have maxed the LPE duals out.

Weather looks decent for at least the next week.

I talked to LPE and they made 1200whp with the mechanical version of the pump with a BAP. But the Squash won't need a BAP and the meth is purely there from a safety standpoint not as a fuel replacement now. I was gonna just see what my 70LB/HR injectors and how far they'd take me but they worked out a deal with me at ECS made it a no brainer for the id's

Weather does look good
