How confident should I be?

A friend is buying a ram most likely and won't shut his hemi mouth. I'm pretty confident a 4wd boosted should easily take him, but to tell you the truth I've never raced my truck, tracked, or dynoed. Next weekend is dyno day . I know the 250s are easy wins, but I'm quite heavier.

Also I'm looking at injectors, can I run 150s fairly well on stock pump, hpop, and turbo with fair gains? Looking at spartan's stage 1s

Talk to Stump .... He can advise best. That is the fastest EX I know of, but I am sure that there are others on here.

Your Buddy is running a stock Hemi?

A Hemi RAM? If so, you will eat him alive on extreme street. My cousin has a 2wd RAM Quad Cab Hemi. I can beat him stock with a boosted launch in 2wd.
