    taps you have to understand that this is just a guess and I am a bit conservative with the numbers because of the amount of variables in this. But going by the info that you gave I am going to have to say around a 5.90/5.80 ET & MPH 115/118 thats if you get the boost you show. Well be sure to let us know what it runs after your pass. And make sure you have all your safety stuff to go with a number like that.

    OK taps I am glad to see that you have been that fast before. So you knowing how to run a car at that ET than my non conservative figure was a 5.60/5.70 an with a small shot like 75hp and no bigger and also with a retard control box you could see 5.40/5.50. Make sure your timing is right with that juice and talk to some people that have done it before to give you some hints on what not to do.

    Another thing to consider, blown gas cars love intercoolers.

    Hey Zip I think thats why he was going for the nos to cool the air charge on the 871 blower. He is going to have a wild ride for sure.

    Could be you're right,
    right now the big rod show is going on over her in Gulf Port, it's a week long show. there's a 68 chev truck with a 1071 blower on gas that the guy is driving around. He said before he put a 4"tall intercooler on the truck he couldn't drive it at all. He said with the intercooler it dyno'ed at 1000 HP and it's totally streetable with the big blk. He also said he only ran it 1 time and it didn't hook until 1/2 track on wide mickey street tires, it only ran low 11's but at 140MPH. They wouldn't let him run it again because he didn't have a full cage.

    it was just a thought.

    Zip.
