Other ways to make more power

Hello guys,

So far I'm running:

8.86 lower pulley
ID850 injectors
BTR Custom Cam
Roto-Fab Intake
Kooks 1 7/8 Headers
Ported Throttle Body
Meth Injection

At about 14lbd of boost on a conservative tune.

In what ways could I squeeze or get more power? Going up on the lower pulley or changing the converter?

How many HP are you getting now?
And what are you aiming for?
Seems to me way over 600 for a CA car.

No way you're making 14 Lbs. on just an 8.6" (10%) lower pulley. If you're not running an upper then definitely do a 2.55" upper, heat exchanger upgrade, and have Jeremy Formato @ Fasterproms port the blower. Once you pass that, then it's time for ported heads, full E85, and more.

Tuner said Dyno is running at 622 rwhp.
They are the ones that told me I'm at 14lbs of boost.

My goal is somewhere between 650-700 rwhp.

8.66" lower pulley only is only good for a few extra pounds over stock, if my memory serves me correct, it should be around 10 Lbs. Only thing that would get you to 14 Lbs is either a 9.55-10" Lower only or a 2.55" upper and an 8.66-9.1" lower.

But anyways, see if you an confirm which pulleys you are running, if you're making 622 on just a 8.6 Lower then adding a 2.55" upper will likely get you at or close to the 650 number, porting the blower and or E85 will easily get you over 700.

Exactly.

14 Lbs of boost and a cam is good for north of 650rwhp in an auto and more in a manual.

Okay I will check again. I'll probably move up to the 9.55 lower and keep the stock upper and see how much that will push me over. I'll stick with Meth over E85 because E85 is so far and few around here in Los Angeles.

If you go do a 9.1" or bigger you'll need either an idler relocation bracket or 50mm idlers.

Yeah your best and least expensive option would be to upgrade the lower pulley you'll need a belt also...

Yeah I've talked to JRE and they confirmed I would need the relocation bracket so I'll get that as well. Also, looking to do a ported snout and trying to see the pros and cons of that to see if its worth it.
