Well, it depends on how far you are willing to go. How many creature comfort things you are willing to remove. I remember years ago you were against stripping weight. Physics tells us that removing(and re-distributing) weight is very valuable to making the truck work and run fast. I am looking forward to seeing the results!

My man Big Jim* how are you doing coach⚽ i really didn’t want to go this route but I’m trying to Protect the silver assassins title ? boost only 2.3 Whipple record ? i am trying to level the playing Field, if it was not for the 5.8 Big Bore Lightnings that are coming after this record there would have been no need for me to do this
And to Answer your question ?I Want to go as fast as possible without hurting the motor ? not so common these days?is their more in this little 2.3 Whipple ? I am saying (YES) Even though she is running 19 degrees of timing and going 3/4 down the track at 27 Lbs of boost and still pulling hard Through the traps at 30 lbs
the air fuel is at 10.3*10.6 ? Plenty of fuel to accommodate this power? maybe other tuners will lean it out a bit, but not us, ?JDM? SR & JR ? all on the same page, the tune is ? on point ?and will not be touched, so going lighter is the safest way possible?? How much faster will she go, we soon will find out ?
hopefully she Will improve on her 60 foot times, as of now her best 60 ft is a (1.316) ? as I said time and time again we are a team ?? my only job is to get the truck to get the best 60 ft possible and she will do the rest ,it’s that Simple? I still believe with our trucks anyway, that more power is not always the answer,
to me it’s all about a Perfect combination, And I emphasize perfect, too much power with our trucks can compromise the 60 fts* don’t forget my suspension is nothing special, I have leaf springs and 18 way single AJustable QA1s shocks??(THATS IT) ??and I have been told 6 years ago my shock settings and suspension setup would not work on all my trucks in the same way ?WRONG? my System works on all (3) of my lightning trucks ??? at 3 Different levels???
?And as for me going to the (2.9) ?? That’s up to MR. Whipple himself??
In the meantime it’s going to be fun trying to keep that 2.3 Whipple record out of reach ?
?PS?, I have been asked what do i think about the. (2.9) ?my answer is this ,I think it’s a great blower,if you are looking to go with the 2.3 or the 2.9 ?I definitely would go with the 2.9? But if you already have the (2.3) maybe you should call me ? Hey that rhymes?
?In Closing,as you know this to be true JIM, All I learned about these trucks is from? secretariat?
