Yeh the power read outs are not far off, what torque readings are at the wheels? my motor has a rev limiter to 6700rpm and it gets there in no time.

Whats intake maniflod you running? I think im going to re do my exhaust & HPC coat the extractors to get abit more out of it too.

I think Dave's problem (EL XR8) would be the same as mine. Once you take the 347 making ~300rwhp, drop on the blower and a tune, and you would be just about pushing the limits of the block. :(

I'd like to know how a btr trans will handle that sort of power,or does it really depend on how the vehicle is driven.

My trans is a stocky done about 10,000ks but when i had it recond. info from different shops was u can't really strenghen them in anyway unlike turbo 700 boxs in which $4-$5 grand in upgrades and they're vertually unbreakable
