Ha I was about to consider going back to V8.
Here's info added to the videos. 2.3 turbo, stock block, stock crank, factory iron head Stage 3 porting from Boport Racing Crower rods, CP pistons Stinger header ported by Boport, holset HX40 at 16psi, NPR intercooler Factory upper lower intakes worked by Boport Transmission Doug Nash 4+1, McCleod Soft Lok 11" clutch, 8.8" 31 spline axles, 3.73 gears, 28x11.50 ET Streets
Hopefully the next week ill have enough free time I can complete the huge parts list I have and we can update the webpage with the most current build specs
Sweet vid! Would you have to make many changes to get it to runs as well on a 1/4 mile course?
Zero changes. All gearing is done with the 1/4 mile in mind. Currently has 3.73s and I run 7400RPM in 3rd which is 103mph. Since i busted some trans pieces friday I'm thinking Gforce GF5R 5speed, 4.56s and new ET Drags next. That would at least make for a good show. lol
Brian yeah, I'm kept the window rolled down a little and they said they thought I lined up with the wrong group of cars. Doh lol

Basically that much of a gear change would shift everything over one gear change. It would take a little over 7000 to get through the 1/8th in 4th gear and would take a little over 7000 again to make it through the 1/4 in 5th.
Not really sure what to expect for the 1/4. It like its pretty close to 10.40-10.50s like it sits but I havent gotten a full clean pass so I wont guess yet.
