Whats the problem?
Oh ok, I just thought I could do it NA. What compression should I run? This motor is at 8.5:1 right now... If I were to do a carbon copy on alcohol should it be more like 10:1 or should I just turn more boost more more power? Right now it's breathing though dual 750 double pumped, what should that be for alcohol? Also what do I need to do to turn more RPM with it? Is 7500 rpm possible with a 468 and an 8-71 on alcohol? The internals are all forged, but should I use aluminum rods? What cylinder heads can handle this?
