    If I had to guess it would be 692 TQ @ 19 degrees timing. :smmon:

    Edit: That is if he is talking about vadorsnake04's car.

    WOW!!! Nice numbers.

    Is that stock heads and Cams? Stock displacment?

    What kind of fuel system are your running?

    Me thinks a 325 stocker (based off a boss 5.0 block) with ported heads and CAMS, big ass headers and exhaust, a whipple 3.4 at max boost (18,000 rpms) with a crusher inlet running on e85 might be able to do 1000rwhp!!

    torque was low because the 2.8 wasnt even in its efficiency range... at 3k, it was only at 17psi vs yours at like 23psi... when these are not in the efficiency range, they act like centri blowers..

    Ha! You know you're pretty legit when you can make 692 ft lbs of tq at the tire and refer to that as "low."

    hmm..that wouldn't make any sense. The blower itself doesn't have any contact with the fuel.

    A more accurate sticker should have said not 87 octane compatible maybe ;-)

    OP congrats on those numbers! So does E85 have a cooling effect like alcohol?

    Sounds to me that if the whipple isn't E85 compatible, you wouldnt be able to use a wet shot of nitrous while running on E85.
