Do you consider 116 pump gas? Standard heads?

I'm with GLH, if it hasn't done it yet, it isn't the fastest yet.
Good luck!
JS, can you please explain your pulley theory in depth and also estimate the PSI blower's boost, relative to the combinations that you would suggest, that could be optimal for voodoo racings desires ? re:42 Tiger PS: GLH what was your gear in the #6's and what wheel did you spin when you achieved your MAX top speed. Gatorone 93.

Are you saying 1500hp on 93 octane and standard heads

Hello Gatorone, not sure what u mean by standard heads, aluminum, conventional maybe, was going to run big chiefs heads but worried about geometry issues, i am a realist though and understand we may not achieve these numbers on 93 oct. in my opinion detonation would be our enemy on making big hp on pump gas, u cant see in the pics, but i have methanol injection which should aid a little in detonation as additional boost is applied, do you have expierince with similiar engine combos?

I think 1500 is a lil ambitious on pump gas
