Right now with those mods it probably makes around 350 RWHP, it traps a 112mph right now.

this winter my project is installing a radix magnacharger mp112 (innercooled). ill be upgrading the injectors to 60#'s. Ill be swapping in an ls6 cam. The pulley will be a 2.9. I should be making around 500 hp.

are there anythings I should change? I was thinking about ditching the 1" loweing springs and putting the stock ones back on. Ill be getting rid of my UD pulley, strut tower brace (wont fit).

usually takes about 450-500 rwhp (depending on raceweight and suspension mods) to get to the 10s in most f-bdoy, the power seems like it will be there the rest is up to you

+1. At your weight 10's are simply a traction issue. Aim for 1.6 60' times and you should be golden. That, however, is easier said than done: your setup doesn't hook very well based on your video: and it should hook hard with what you've got. Don't waste your time, just take it to a good shop that has experience in the third gen area.

my vid I had bald radials on the car. 255's. slicks or DR should help ALOT.
