Need lots of Fuel on Big Boosted engines Wiz.
Design Critera must be met.
I like a 50-100 % safety factor.
If 750hp built the F.S. for 1250-1500 hp.
Never have too much.
Too little or if the Fuel pump motor slows down its all over.

#10 AN Main Feed line is what we do here.
At times #12 AN.
BIG COCK FUEL DELIVERY.

All you have to do Gunny is take any 700R4 or 4L60e input drum bare unloaded.
Drop it 3 feet off the ground.
Do it so Turbine shaft is pointed up.
The shaft and aluminum drum will break off clean at the topside of the drum.
Just 1/4 inch material holding all that torque and hp.

Try it.
Your perception will forever change.

I am done trying.

No one is Racing .
Setting records.

Much is because Bama care has left most broke.

Other is Motivation.

That is up to each of you.

Speaking of Impalas, I finished the one I was building. line locks, Baer 6p calipers up front 4p in the rear, 383 stroker LT @ 9.0:1 all forged with RMCR vortech +175hp stage 2 power adder, efi connection 24x conversion with 411 pcm(that's right F*CK optispark!) and tuned with HPTuners. This car came out incredible. Here she is on the dyno:

Torque is how we measure fail points. Because Torque is a direct measurement of an engines power output. Horsepower as we all know is a math (RPM * Torque / 5252). If we were to use this math to measure a failpoint than maybe we might want the failpoint to look more like a table showing max hp levels given a certain rpm before things start breaking. But to keep it simple we just say that 4l85e in its stock trim can handle 685lb-ft of Torque before it will break.

It all depends upon the Market and cliental your working with.

Not sure why.
In Illinois its WOT RACE.
IN OKLAHOMA ITS WOT RACE.

TRUE STREET OUTLAWS.

Ya I for the most part gave up on posting up build threads because of photosuckit. My job has a facebook page they post up stuff on. I have been doing more interesting things with my time:

I sped through this thread.

T400 will hold a shit load of HP

Yeah it's a power robber but when you blow up the others you go go with what works.

Big gears don't work on the t400 as you will be screemin throgh the traps, dying at the 1000 ft mark.

Tallest I went was 3:73

3:73 with a shit load of HP works great. 4:11's or what ever will kill you unless you have 7500 RPM motor.

I was running 7000 rpm through the traps on No2

Custom built motor from ground up. If you want to race, throw away whatever chevy put in that car and build a custom tace motor.

Autowiz...need to work on the rear suspension and get that car to squat and plant those tires.

Beef up the rear and go with QA1 dual adjustable shocks dial to 90/10 in the rear. adjust the fronts to shift the weight to the rear

Go with 15" wheels with big hoosier sidewalls. 12lbs of pressure will grab the VHT

May need to modify brake calipers to fit.

Just some random thoughts.. Tires/suspension huge in launch.

Brian is right. Drag set up is way different from road race.

If you want to drag a street car. Loose weight in the car.

I could keep going.

I need to check in here more often.

I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Just knowing what Nitrous Oxide does & the HIT ....Brute instant torque it delivers I would say you had 925-975 Ft/lbs at the Flywheel torque on Launch.

Nothing wrong with a 4L80E.
Just expensive.
Torque converter selection is limited some.
RACE TO WIN 4L80E converters are $2,000- $10,000.
So....
When you look at overall picture A Pro Can set you up with a TH400 Ready to Rock & Roll with a Transbrake for $3500-4000.
Race winning converter $750-$1500.
Build your own TH 400 with a $50 core.
$500-750 in hard parts.

I really Like the Big Block Chevy Group on Facebook.
All Hardcore like Me.
I have them all swearing. LOL


I found a Pontiac Racing Group I like too.
No Prep Pontiacs.
I have them calling Pontiac small journal engines & Big Jounal engines something new.

BIG COCK JOURNAL PONTIAC 455.
SMALL COCK JOURNAL PONTIAC 400.

Just Hilarious.
