weekend with a 500RWHP turbo M3 and those other guys. I've seen those cars mentioned in person, if you would of made it to Curry's, you would of as well. :-)

Should be pretty good.

310-315hp/322-327TQ from my N/A V8.

I am going to go have this car dynoed tomorrow at 7 lbs of boost and take a look at the A/F readings, if all looks well, I might have it dynoed at 13 lbs of boost and see what the A/F looks like.

I am guessing the person "misquoted" and was more like 500 at the crank. Stock internals pushing 500 rwhp I highly doubt. Perhaps with the nitrous n-tercooler, etc. I know mcubed in FL is pushing 17 lbs of boost with 410 rwhp and 400 ft*lbs of torque. I HIGHLY HIGHLY doubt my car is pushing that much - in fact, I am almost 99% positive it is NOT.

I think I will be lucky to even come CLOSE to what Phil is pushing 386 rwhp. I am hoping to hit at 7 lbs 300 rwhp -- I have a sneaking suspicion I may be around 280-290. With 13 lbs, I would hope to hit around 380 rwhp. The nitrous n-tercooler should put me above the 400 rwhp range though...but there is NO way I am doing that without checking my A/F readings first on a dyno...AND also getting water injection.

Besides -- numbers mean crap, if I suck at driving, all the power in the world is not going to help me.

I AM shooting for a 400 rwhp daily driver though, once I reach that, I will quit. I think water injection should help prevent detonation and allow me to run 12 psi at low boost and 17 psi at hi-boost. Hook up the nitrous n-tercooler and I should be damn near 450 rwhp.... hopefully...

We'll see how this weeks dyno run turns out....mmm...maybe I will dyno the green M3 as well.....

understanding your system. 13-17lbs of boost on stock internals is not highly recommended imo.

Good luck, let me know about the dyno. AutoT dyno is great.

But as James said what does RWHP matter if teh driver cant launch. James. I would suggest you take a trip over there and look at Silverstreaks launching tips, he has a Bastardized RMS stage2, and is pulling 11's in a 3.0.<br><img src="" height=40 width=100>
