I can tell ou first hand 1,000rwhp+ is going to cost a lot more than $20K by the time the dust settles and you hit the track. Try doubling that figure and hope nothing breaks.

NA$TY-TA made a little under 1100rwhp with 317s on a 370 with an S88 before he pushed water.

Fast, cheap and reliable; pick two because you cannot have all three.

Correct....I think he may have broken the 1100rwhp mark...not not entirely sure. I thought I remember 1132rwhp....but I maybe wrong.

More preaching. Hell, I bought his old stuff and then changed directions costing me even more money.

And for the love of all that is holy, do it to an F-body. It's cheaper.

The S88's is where the deal will be. We have them for $1449 beginning Oct 1st through Dec 31st. The S91 is being phased out....we are working on another unit to replace it.

I think you guys are forgetting i have a turbo car already, i know it cost a lot, But all i am doing is swaping, motor, turbo, and fuel. The rest of the car is bullet proof.

It won't. Most of the people on here will just throw out a high $$$$ number for whatever reason. Shop around, do your homework, and spend your money wisely. Iron block, stock crank, and 317s is most certainly good for 1000rwhp+. Buy your turbo from Jose and Dr Turbo at forcedinductions.com and a set of 80lbs injectors from FIC Injectors. Source out the rest of the parts from the for sale section here and from vendors. Summit has stupid cheap prices on AN lines and fittings BTW.

Missed the part that you have a turbo already...but you are talking about a BIG step in power...BIIIGGGGG different from 600-700 hp to 1000+

is your current fuel system adequate for 1000+ hp?

Is your current intercooler adequate for 1000+...this is usually the point many switch to A2W. If so...need water lines, water tank, water pump, etc

Probably will need a different torque converter...higher power will increase the effective stall and can blow through the converter

Boost controller?

Thats one thing i said in the last post, i need to upgrade fuel.

The converter i have is built for over 1000whp turbo car, so i am good there.

Yes i have a boost controller.
