build questions

I've got a 4in turbo back exhaust, 6637 intake, wicked wheel, south bend clutch, and swamps tunes. My first question is what do i do next? I obviously have pmr's being an 01 and I've double checked the number so realistically the most i can do is 400 horses. Im thinking a regulated return, swamps 175/30% injectors, and an s366 turbo? Opinions would be great

look at the thread PMR safety ( started by me if it makes it easier to find) and read on the last 2 pages basically had the same conversation but you can make more than 400 with pmrs i had a couple guys respond saying that they have been for a while with no issues. I'm gonna put 238cc hybrids in mine with my pmrs

Stick to stage 1's stock nozzles 180cc, SRP1.1., 38r RR, and good tunes will get you very close..

PMR's..just asking for problems unless detuned then whats the point.

Now I'm not an expert by any means, correct me if I'm wrong because i very well could be but stage 1's... they would be at close to 100 % duty cycle pushing 400 hp, a hybrid detuned would be operating at less than maximum duty cycle, would that not be more efficient and last longer? no disrespect just trying to understand things correctly.

what is an srp1.1?

thanks for the input, its much appreciated

SRP is an upgraded HPOP. Big fuel requires big oil.

Buy into the internet marketing hype if you want but no can say at what point a PMR motor will blow a rod..its somewhere 400+..if you can afford to take a risk then get any inj you want..just don't buy into the marketing BS that its special tuneing or special nozzles that allow 400+ HP to live with PMR's...
