I've not had the car on the dyno but was wondering what the rwhp might be if I run 126 in the 1/4? What's your guys hp levels that run about that mph.

There's a million variables for that Question!!!!! A car that wieghs 3200 pounds needs alot more hp to run that MPH then say 2800 pound car. So "estimate" 3200# car I'de say 450 to 500 hp.. My car weighed 2870 and went 117 and only had 300whp (stick car)

Raceweight was 3350lbs (+ me @ 210lbs)...as I had just filled the tank up 100%.

Well that gives me an idea at least of what I might be putting out. I figured only 420-450 at the most. I figure I've got more in the car with better tuning but the engines built to run on nitrous so I'm pretty happy with it so far. Thanks for your help guys.

Before I replaced the stock k member and I had a fuel cell at the time I weighed 2940 without me in it which I'm light myself. Car's a lot lighter now so I need to get it weighed again.
