    I was originally going to do heads and a cam first but based on the research I did and people I talked to, that was only going to put me a little over 300 at the wheels. I talked to several builders/tuners and they told me a vortech would put me at or above 400 at the wheels and would be the best bang for the buck. As soon as I have those numbers I will post them up.

    If you get over 400 at the wheels (safely) with this system, I will be ordering up the Vortech the minute I see your dyno sheet.

    Define "safely". Some would say 400 rwhp is asking for trouble, others would say they've ran them for years like that.

    I personally made over 400 HP to the tires on a stock longblock with nothing more than a V1 S trim and a power pipe. Since the V3 is much more efficient it will easily make the same or better numbers. My setup was dead reliable and I beat on it every single day. (my old 95, not my current car) Here's my dyno sheet for inspiration to the OP!:

    Oh and you guys have cobras, this was on a GT with stock E7's! So you guys will definitely break 400 to the tires since your cars already have heads and intake that breath much better than GT equipment.

    Here is a quick video I took tonight after I got home. I only revved it up to 3k just because it is late and I don't want to disturb the neighbors. This is without the supercharger belt on. It's not running as smoothly as I would like it at the moment but that should be ironed out in the tune. Oh yeah, I may be adding a methanol injection system...

    Doesn't sound too bad for the stock axleback.

    I found a slight coolant leak at the water inlet on the intake manifold. It starts to drip a little when the engine is above idle rpm's. Looks like a have a project for tomorrow...

    Got that coolant leak fixed: a new gasket and some RTV and it is good to go. Everything is set for my Thursday morning dyno tune. 2 more days...

    If you don't get us a video of the dyno run I think a ban is in order! lol Oh and some in car footage as you're ripping through the gears after the tune would be nice as well!

    I can't believe there aren't any pics. I still post pics of every step of every project.
