8 psi is what we run on the LS1/LS6 and 7 psi for the LS2 engine. Bob

Probably not the cam most people would choose for boost with a stock motor, but an ATI at 7 psi should drop a second or so off your times. IF you can get it to hook up. I'd buy a D now (trust me, you'll upgrade it later anyway if you get a P) & pulley it down. Then when you blow this motor up, the D will be enough for the stroker mtor you're going to buy.

Just trying to show you the path you've started down.....we all run meth to prove we're addicts.

lol, so true.

I wouldn't run 10 psi on a stock bottom end unless you are prepared for rebuilding the engine. It may last and it may not, but if you can't afford an engine build, then don't run 10 psi. Methanol will certainly help to keep it together though. Bob

No I didn't, I said I wouldn't run 10 psi. We set our systems up with 8 psi all the time without any problems, but there is a big difference between 8 psi and 10 psi. I wouldn't mess around with 38 pound injectors, I'd go with 60 pound injectors.

Check out this kit. http://www.exoticperformanceplus.com....html?item=798
