Pssh that's just a bunch of piping all bent up. I think an apprentice was using it to learn how to bend pipe and threw it aside.

Russ what pulley are you running on your Whipple? I was thinking about doing a pulley swap but can't make up my mind.

Don't you have traction issues already Nick?

Russ, do you have a specific goal you're shooting for with your car?

Right now I have the 3.75, and ended up at 9.3 max boost. If you pulley any higher I'm afraid you'll start going lean at higher RPMs.

LOL...my original goal was a catback exhaust!

With the blower I was looking at 600RWHP, and now that I'm there I'd like a little more for the track. I'm going with NOS so I'm not running that much power all the time.

Yes but only when I jab it from a stop. I've learned to ease into the throttle.

I'm using the stock pulley. Think it's 4.125" if I remember right. Was thinking of going with a 4".

I'll have to check. I'm only considering the pulley swap since I'm having long tubes installed. I know they'll lower my boost.

Could I bug you to possibly make me one of those dern cool sigs you have a knack for creating?

Thanks!

Don't you have a cam? I guarantee you that dropped your boost.
