What, then he would beat me, (LOL). I almost went with a Hellion turbo set up, but decided on the Kenne Bell. If I roadraced the Mach more, I definately would have choosen the Turbo, but it is mostly street driven, so the positive displacement supercharger for it's torque was the right choice for me. I can't belive some of the younger guys in my car club that are running turbo set up's on there Mach's and Terminators. These guys are pushing 800-1000rwhp, it is just insane. Of course these guys are rich spoiled kids, LOL.

Madmax305 I also showed my neighbor a video of the mach on just the 15 lb tune, I think he changed his mind on trying to compete...

Madmax305 My neighbor with the nice Z28 came over today and we started to talk about engines. During our conversation, he had mentioned he purchased his 383 crate engine from Edelbrock and that it was a "Limited edition with 460 HP". I did not realize Edelbrock made this engine. He then goes on to tell me that he is thinking about a 200 shot of nitrous and he wants a rematch. Again, what is the big deal, he is really upset about his car getting beat. I guess my neighbor does not know much about supercharges. I guess I could put on a smaller pulley and down load my 100 octane tune, or the 110 tune if it gets serious. LOL

American Muscle my wifes nissan quest puts out a wopping 265hp and is fun to drive. Im trying to get that out of my 305 hehehe

Madmax305 He actually has more money into his car, he has hinted he paid about $60,000, not including the 383 upgrade. He pulled the original 350 motor. The car is a matching number car. I just can't understand why he takes it so personal. There is a 1987(?) Buick GN in our car club and on any given day, either one of us is the quickest. It does not bother me that I get my a?? handed to me on occasion. If it really bothered me that much, I would do a pulley swap and race gas, once again, we all lose at one time or another...

Your newer car is a lot more refined, nicer ride quality and much lower cabin noise with nice interior comfort. That's where the newer car shines.

That's probably true since the sbc's are so cheap to build and you can have much more displacement.

It just kills him that my Mach can hand him his *** any time, any where. Don't get me wrong, I love Chevys, (I have a retored 67 El Camino), but it is so funny how it just pisses him off. I'm not saying I have the fastest car on the planet, ( I have lost several races at the track), but he takes it way to serious.

. I actually like it when I get beat, I find it impressive and I figure that's a guy I need to talk to. I once saw a 03 cobra that had a dohc 5.4 with a vortec supercharger on it, guy claimed 1,000hp on race gas and from the 9 second slips I have no reason to doubt it. Those mod motors can do well under boost, but usually don't do well na.

The car is set up more for roadracing/street carving. I have all Maximum Motorsport suspension/k-member, Bilstein coilover struts/shocks and Brembo brakes. Just too much to list.

Glad you clarified it, that install looks awesome!

A lot of younger guys in my car club are very capable and they have pulled engines, changed cam, etc, etc. These engines are great, they're tuff, will turn 7200 rpm's all day long. You can data log and adjust several engine perameters on just a SCT hand held programmer. These engines burn so clean, you could eat your lunch behind the exhaust. I have four tunes saved. My street tune is for 91 craptane, 15lbs boost and 570rwhp. The other tunes are for race gas only. These engines are completely different than the old push rod style engines. Both style of engines have their pros and cons....
