If you can get in touch with Matt (Elcobra) he is also really good at installs.

Just go see Tim and get it done. You will not be disappointed (especially when he shows you all the other builds they are doing). Only problem is that he might talk you into a Kenne Bell while you're there so make sure you bring the checkbook.

You will see 495-500 on 8lbs of boost on a Dynojet. I'm running 10lbs of boost.

I started off big and now will add the smaller stuff. A cam will get me to 600rwhp and I'll stop there on the stock bottom. Next up is a forged motor, lower compression and higher boost.

I'm running a Kenne Bell 2.8LC. Installed it was a little over $9k. A Vortech would be a little less expensive. While you won't have that off-idle flat torque curve, it will make just as much horse power up top and be a little less harsh on a stock motor.

Them thar are pretty good numbers, Gladius. I'm a little detuned right now. I saw Tim again today and we are looking into the 93 tune to max it out on the 32 tooth. That way I will own 2 tunes. The stock Vortech tune (91) and a custom 93 CMR tune. I'm only at 6.5 lbs. boost and won't make more than 530-535 rhp. But that get's the party started, if you know what I mean, lol.

Since I'm running so much boost I'm running very little timing. I could advance it several more degrees and make more power but on a stock motor that's crazy... Unless you're looking for a reason to forge it. Smile. This tune should make reliable power without grenading the motor until I'm ready for stage 2.

Good idea for that much boost. My rotation assy. puts more pressure on my motor than my blower does at 6.5 so I'm all good to max it out.
