anybody? what injectors? would a stock hpop pump support this much power? would a garret bb turbo support this power level? h2e seem a bit pricey

My siggy would do it on nitrous. It'll do it with a modded H2E no problem though.

Based upon your signature here is what you'll need.

Transmission
230-250 cc hybrid injectors
66/17, 66/19, or 71/19 modded h2e
Fuel system of some sort.

That's really all you'll need, but many recommend pushrods, valve springs, headstuds at that level. Other things will make for a better driving experience like a bigger intercooler, water injection etc...

Not unless you want your EGT's so high you have to run water to keep them down anytime you get on it! This is for 500 RWHP on fuel.

plus one for the headstuds , injectors, and turbo stated above, and some good custom tuning should get you close, but as far as a budget , its not gonna be cheap

I did 480 RWHP on the dyno last week.. I think the Garrett is maxed out so a Modded H2E or other larger turbo would be needed. I think if I do the foil delete, I might bump 500 though

Garrett GTP38R turbo
Casserly hybrid injectors
dual HPOP's
BTS Tranny
Full fuel system
