~825rwhp is what it took to get my 3300# coupe to go a 8.87 @ 153 with a plain BW S475 last year. You should be able to run mid 8's fairly easy.

Well let's see if I have the balls to go 8s, I hit the wall over 2 years ago, when I was running [email protected] and I am slowly putting the coupe back together. I was told I could still run low boost and still make good power the way Reed set the turbo up. My theory was to keep my setup simple, run a big air to air, no Meth, no E85, just 83lb injectors, old school F.A.S.T., and not max out the efficiency of the turbo to keep air temps down. I don't know if it's a good theory but I will give it a try and see how it works for me. Also I will start off with low boost to see if I can handle it or not.
