That does seem like a lot for a 1.9 blower.

the grey GT500 is pretty proper, itís VMP tuned. Iíd say the 3v is at least 400 lbs lighter. Now the KB car has a lot of **** to line out lol

What would make it a little more believable? Same displacement but LSA has stronger bottom end which is much more boost friendly and has higher flowing heads. I'd assume it would be the other way around.

Ironed out full bolton 5.8 should go ~140 on 93. I imagine the 3v is not that fast? Yea KB car needs to make a few changes.

its making lowish 700ís at probably 4000 lbs. I donít think Ive ever seen them touch 140 without e85 and incredible weather. He even has 3.73ís.

Well the fact it's giving up almost 2 points of compression and makes 50+ less to the wheels less with a similar combo says otherwise.

Full boltons on 93 should make 750+. With e85 it should be 141-143 range even at 4000lbs. Mine went 140 making 713 @ 37xx. The 5.8 cars with weight out and e85 are going mid 140s.
