KNanthrup its all in the tuning. id say low 12's motor, mid 11's nitrious
04-02-2005 07:01 PM

if that is a computer dyno i wouldnt trust it.
It said my motor would go from 425 HP at idle to 0 HP at 4000 rpm.

3300 lb car with you in it.
511 HP / by 15% convertor slip.
444 hp.
11.2 sec @ 119 in the 1/4
7.1 in the 1/8th

Panzy oxide
3300 lbs.
661/15%=574 hp
10.3 @ 130 mph
6.5 in the 1/8th

You realize this is from guesstimators. Don't be dissappointed when it doesn't happen. Since you haven't specified suspension, slicks. wheel size. etc. You may not hook and run a 20 sec 1/4.

Rhansen My motor only made 87% of what DD2000 claimed it would.

singletoncamaro69 I'd check that wieght again my 69 is very similar setup ( weight wise) and it is at 3480 but I still say 11"s with NOS for sure!

03-27-2004 10:57 AM
showtime69 Did u say 12's?? I really hope u mean 12's all motor?? I should deff be in the 11's with a 150shot. My car only weighs 3100lbs!
03-27-2004 01:50 AM
killerformula Your estimates are about 50-60 hp high I think. You'll be in the 12's.

03-26-2004 11:29 PM
showtime69 any one else ??? I really wanna know what im going to be running this year.. I figured mid 11's with a 150 shot.
03-26-2004 09:27 PM
badknuckles say those hp figures are close. you should be running mid 10's-mid 11's
03-26-2004 09:26 PM
showtime69 Any guesses on the times?
03-26-2004 09:24 PM
badknuckles sounds like a good setup. i dont trust cpu dyno's all that much.

Chevy 355 cid

Im running holly 750, victor jr intake, canfield 200cc aluminum cylinder heads w/ upgraded roller springs, custom grind roller cam 238/244 duration - .580/.585 lift, Im running no mufflers , just headers , to straight pipe. I have a turbo 350 w/ harden sprag gears , 12 bolt rear end w/ mosier axles, 4:11 gears, Frame ties, Traction bars, and BFgoodrich drag radials.... I got these crank power ratings from desktop dyno , which i hear is extreamly accurate! Like i said im running my 69 camaro which weighs around 3100 lbs... Alright with all that said, Lay it on my boyz

badknuckles if that is a computer dyno i wouldnt trust it.
i have seen a computer dyno miss by over 100 hp.
03-26-2004 09:04 PM
onecoomofo What size motor? also what all is done to the motor and what accessories are on it. That would help me narrow it down.

Also, are those real HP and TQ numbers from the dyno, or a computer program?
