Looks good guys, we love making big power on pump gas also! Just wondering if you guys are using meth at all, did not see it mentioned so I assume not.

FLP-we are not using any methanol or any other additives, just straight 91 from the mobil station by our shop. just spend some time on your combustion chamber and dish design and you wont need that stuff. FYI- our iat's are any where from 125 to 145 at wot max boost with 85 degree ambiant tempatures.

Are you sure you want to call that stuff 91??
That fuel (At the mobil station by our shops) is dirt water.. I'd love to see what you guys do on REAL fuel..

You gonna be at the shop on Sunday Cody? If not, ill swing by on Mon.


Guys,
I've seen the car, and poked my head around it. There are no secret fuel setups on this car. Hell, I sold him his 80lb injectors. This car IS running on 100% 91 octane pump gas. HE'S EVEN ON THE STOCK CLUTCH..

Clutches can handle alot of linear and unloaded power. But your right, the second it HOOKS, it will blow through in a milisecond..

Ive told Cody he was insane a half dozen times, but he figures he's gonna keep it in until it bakes, or he is done with development. But if memory serves me right, he hasn't done any load control runs. They've all been acceleration runs.

Oh I understand and agree completely, we don't use that garbage at our shop either. We have plenty of 800+HP cars that run on 93 octane with no meth. In fact I had another vendor say something to me at the C5fest about "well yeah if your building like a 750HP car". I didn't have the heart to tell him I had 5 of those at the shop right now.

Brian, not there yet but here is a taste of where we are with the new pulley combo. I just have to figure out where my restriction is at 6000 and we should hit 1000rwhp shortley.

-p.s. the stock clutch is still in there and after loaded dyno pulls and hard street driving, i still cant hurt it. so if everyone is right about there being no way the stock clutch is holding the power, then maybe we are already there. im going to change it soon on a back to back run so i will know for sure, not just speculation.

Hey Cody, I have a take out Mcleod clutch that you can use for some testing if you want. It started slipping at about 1200 at the flywheel, so we yanked it in order to put in a different clutch. You can feel free to borrow it if you want to. Its only seen engine dyno time.

I see you tomorrow. I forgot to run by today.
