    I agree! I think everybody NEEDS 838 horsepower in a 2000 pound car!

    why not try adding a wet nitrous plate kit just for grins, to see what an extra 250 hp feels like
    just be sure you work out the minor bugs at the 75 hp level, then 100hp, then 150hp, then 250hp, and always jet the combos on the rich upper edge on fuel, at each stage,
    before jetting to each higher performance level and add a rpm limiter.
    if you shop carefully you can assemble a damn effective wet holley carb kit at a significant savings especially if you find a decent used but in great condition nitrous tank.

    why not find a 250 hp nitrous plate and nitrous kit with the required parts and give a wet nitrous kit a trial run, just start out easy at about the 50 hp level, and work out the tuning and functional kinks in 50 hp steps

    Hahaha.... You guys are NUTS!! That would be to much for me on the street.

    My truck weighs in around 7000 lbs.. the the axles are about 600lbs each and the tires are 225lbs each.
    That is alot of rotating mass that I wish I did not have to have.
    I prolly use 1/2 the power just to turn the tires in the Thick Deep mud.

    You can...I sent you the parts list needed for the build. ;)
    Just replace that keg on the T-bucket with a 55 gal drum and fill it with E-85. That would get you
    to the grocery store about 6 times!

    No Kidding.... that last data log I posted is about 160 seconds long. We had topped the fuel cell off level with the bottom of the fill hole
    before the test. After the test it took 4.8 gallons to bring it back up to the same level where we started.

    I am thinking my truck needs to attend AA meetings now..cause it sure loves the moonshine!!!

    I shouldn't need 55 gallons, it would take alot less than 160 seconds to complete the 1/4 mile ! :D
