Default How many RWHP does a 5000lbs truck needs to run 6 sec in the 1/8th??

Hey guys, as the title says, what kind of rwhp does a 5000lbs need to run 6 sec in the 1/8th of mile??
what are your real world personal numbers??
I have a 4900lbs 4wd rcsb nbs running 7.30 @ 10psi 630ish rwhp..
I still have a 14psi boost level that I havent had a chance to try AND 75hp shot of nitrous on top of that..
Please share your times/rwhp level/ weight..
​​​​​thanks guys!

Great question ! I haven't been able to find the answer to that one either. It only makes sense , or able to accurately predict HP if its at the wheels, but I have not seen that verified .

What's your current setup? 630 @10psi is stout! It took 17psi in my 5000lb truck to get a 7.1 at 98mph

When my truck was nitrous it made 720whp, and would run 6.8s @ 103mph at 4700lbs.

Op made the post sound like 6.0. The 1/8 mile calc says fwhp, 1/4 miles doesn't say anything and seems to be based on rwhp, which would be more accurate imho

Stock48 on here runs in the 9's with his truck, I imagine he has to be in the 6's-not sure on the weight, I thought it was 4 WD

Current setup is in my signature, TMS 370, precision 76/75 which I really want to change it for a BW Billet ETR but I get no replies from Forcedinductions..
