Perfect, until you need traction!

I wish we had e85 locally, sucks... we make it, but don't sell it. It is on 94 pump gas with a little bit of race gas to keep any knock down, but I had zero issues with knock on any pull so I was happy.

I would have gotten video but my friend that was supposed to come had car issues, it will be back on the dyno in the spring, 400 should be pretty easy with more tuning and a smaller pulley.

It might even get a bottle... like I need it.

Would have liked to see the power from 1500 rpm's up.

Wish you had the ability to go CORN
I wish too, there are 2, each about an hour away.

We tried a pull from 2k, engine didn't like the load at all, pegged the knock gauge instantly. Tried again at 3 and no issues.

I do yes, they are SD headers, the front was easy but the rear was such a pita, had to be modified quite a bit to fit.

The stock manifolds are an aweful design, too much heat stuck in the cylinders, headers let them breathe much easier.
