Sounds incredible!

I like what you've done with it thus far, and I look forward to seeing more passes

Very nice build you have there, and congrats on the custom fabrication and wrench time to do it yourself vs. a shop. Whats the end goal for the car?

thanks , alot of hours into it.

End goal is 9s around 140mph in a full weight street car, then I'll give it to my wife and move on to something else. Been thinking about doing 4g swapped C4 vette

Decent goal to reach... Nothing crazy, and still reliable. Would be interesting to see a twin setup under the hood, but that would need more custom fab and re-design of the IC setup.

This was with 93 pump gas with a water meth kit, 17.5 lbs , th350 trans BTR stage 2 turbo cam

At this boost the car has went 110mph in the 1/8

put some 116 in it and picked up some power but think this turbo is done on my set up and maxed out my injectors

Car is now a sbe 4.8 and a 88mm turbo. Car just keeps getting faster and faster as we go. Stock rear and axles are still holding great even after 13 years of drag racing on them lol
