Hell.......I was running 19lbs of boost on my stock block with a ported Apten....the best time I got out of it was an 11.7x. I switched to a built lower end and Kenne bell right after that.JoeGSVT said:I have about 85K on my 02 and i am wanting to freshen up the drivtrain.I want to go with a setup that can handle 14-15 pounds form a KB or Whipple but dont want anyhting to excentric. I know my current motor wouldnt stand a chance if i bolted either blower uo to it due to the mileage. I am wanting to know what setup you guys have gone with and what it cost you when all said and done. My truck is a DD so i want something that makes a good amount of power but is very driveable and reliable.So lets hear what you guys have, also include some numbers.
I surely am not recommending that kind of boost on a stock block....but just wanted to point out that with the right tune, 14-16lbs should not ever be a problem at the track. Do avoid high speed kick downs, such as running down the freeway at 90 and jumping in it with floor board peddle.
