Curiously enuf, my IDC with 80's is lower than at 7 flat than it was the 60's at 7 flat. Discuss amongst yourselves.
 




As expected less pressure equals more volume; That why a 340lph pump is rated at higher horsepower in a carb car.


Did you go quicker?

80 lb injectors are good to about 960 hp.  9.0 range.


I don't know what fuel pump you are using but a single 340 is good for about 600 hp gross

I have the car set at 7 flat...and haven't bothered to try. Gonna run it at 6.9 this year for bracket racing on an easy 1.7x launch...easy tune and 23 PSI. When I ran the 6.7 I was told to park the car. I'm having Eric tweak the fueling in my race chip.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Is that 600 gross street out is that heads race car hp?

The 255 LPH pump from Racetronix for our cars is rated at 600 FWHP. No data is available from Racetronix for the 340 LPH...or none that I could find.

Best thing to do after proper break in procedure is to take it straight to the track and beat on it like a seal pup.

Hey, that's racist! :P

For how junk my car is, this 6262 and PTC 3k l/u combination is mind blowing. I wasn't expecting this turbo to spool as fast as it does on my stock engine...

Tell me about it. I installed a 6262 a few months ago after running a 44 for(ever) more than 10 years, maybe much longer. :rolleyes; I was very impressed with the power increase, to say the least. I also purchased a 9.5 lock-up converter from Ron Husek to replace my D-5, but I still haven't installed it. To my surprise, the D-5 works fine with the 62. My only complaint is with myself. I thought I could still run 25 pounds of boost.  :icon_eyes:

Most don't know who Russ Merritt is. Bottom line. Russ is one of the very best in the business...per iod. Russ' wife went 9.97 at 138 with a girdled stock stroke 109...think the crank was 20/30. Roller cam...Champion iron heads and I'm betting Russ warmed them over. Stock headers...6776 ...5.7 alky chip...Transla tor...9/11 convertor...th at's it. And Russ' wife...well... the lady can drive.

They were stock Champions. I think they are on my Mazda now. Russ does his own heads. BIGGER isn't always better !! We were gone from racing for 9 years. She came back in 2016 on a HOT/HUMID 90* day. We were at the lake chilling an they decided to go to the track . NED had a Street outlaw class she wanted to get in. The hook came out an here we are now.
........ So much new stuff an changing all the time. Have to seperate the BS. ! Ya we have tried a lot to.  :cheers:

Driving ability. Some can...some can't.
Almost forgot. Most won't listen...or read instructions.

Most important !!!!

You are correct.  Last time I saw Dan was at Cecil County. He was sleeping in the back of the truck and Melissa was doing all the work

Lemme tel ya her an Russ are always trying to move forward and faster !! Since they have been back she is usually at the track 2 days a week.. Min of 6+ 9 sec runs a day. She is always working the lights. I did run her in the Mazda and I thought something was wrong with my car !  She was GONE. 1.3 60's !! Russ is always trying to get more out of the car. Trailer does go to the track..  BUT it is still driven everywhere..  I still love my 9/11 lu. She has a PTC  :rolleyes; now. But she is hauling !!
