      lets say i get 6262 shooting for 400hp would 550cc's be enough without fuel pump?

      also im wondering what psi that would need to reach that goal

      350 whp is pretty much your limit with stock fueling I'm told.

      6262 would be around 9 psi for 350 whp

      yea you definitely need the 550's. And yes you need to upgrade the clutch. Many of us Stage 2 guys had slipping issues with stock clutch around 250 whp. I just ordered the South Bend Stage 3 Endurance clutch which is good for 375 wtq.

      i cant wait to do my 5858 thing.

      in 17 days i'll have my mani+wastegate and soon after i'll have the turbo.. then its piping time and measuring to buy the oil lines... thankfully i have the turbo DIY that andre made long ago... yes, i saved the pictures.

      i was running some numbers... and if i make 300 hp (crank) that would bring the car to a power/weigh ratio of 10.3 lbs/hp from a 14.25 lb/hp! should be quite fast.

      Funny how launch control and NLS were gimmicks when Matt bought it to med9.
      Now others are using it to make people think the sun shines out of their 4$$.

      Are you referring to the fueling limitations or what I said about power output?

      The fueling is what I've heard and read from people and companies in other threads here on the forum. The 9psi me and Josh kind of estimated would be the boost with a 6262 to put you at around 350 whp, because he was at 6 psi and make around +/- 300 whp.

      If I have given any incorrect information I apologize.

      I'm going in for a little stage 3 build I think soon...hopefully this summer.considering i've got a good chance of picking up a used motor with 30k on it...think I'll scoop that up and slowly begin the build... Low comp pistons, rods, valves, all new seats etc etc...I don't really see a need for anything over the 6262...may stay below that like 58ish...

      Regardless this motor in stage 2 trim just pulls to red like a mad man! So slow engine build could be fun!
