Talking What size STICKS ???

I have read a lot of folks using 155mm sticks and some using 190's. I am thinking of using 205mm's wiith an 03' Turbo and on race day a dry shot of 150hp NOS+. The NOS+ will use a progressive 2 stage controller, 75 to launch and 75 at the 1/8th mile. My heads will be ARP'ed and Fire Ringed. I run a 4" downpipe and a 5" straight back w/ no muff or kitty. If it runs to high an EGT , i will consider water injection based on boost pressure, I do like extreme things, does anybody run a set of 205mm on a daily driver, I could use some input. I am not afraid of BLOWING COAL He He,

190s max on a stock turbo. Anything else would be overkill.

yeah 190s have alot of fuel in them. thats my truck in the vid above and it gets hot fast on the stock 06 turbo. it choked the stock turbo on that run pretty good. I can get it up to 1700 if I want on command and im sure it could get hotter. I just dont want to melt anything... If I wasnt planning on geting a turbo soon I would stick with 175s or smaller. 155s would be a really good match with nitrous and a stock turbo. 205s would be enough for compounds. heres a vid of a truck (motoxracer42's) with 205s and a modded vgt for you to see how much fuel there is in those.

made 3 passes that day until the trans started to make some wierd shifts. ran a 14.3 , 14.0 and 14.2 . first time racing the truck. I know it had more in it but I am not the worlds best racer. we were going to make another pass with another driver but the trans was shifting wierd. I think if it were launched harder it would have been high 13s but it was barely loaded. Once I get a new trans. I am going to make a few more passes. may put some nos in to clean up that fuel.
