    Change to a large roller cam, put an electric drive on your water pump,ditch the power steering, but to get any real gains you are gonna have to pull that head and work it over.

    yes I did use the search and that is why I specified 8.8 rear becuase you stated the one he had a part number for is for the 7.5 rear so I was looking for one to go with the 8.8 rear.

    :lol: How quickly things change.
    I am set up for a 75 shot of N20, and I have a spare NA head begging to be ported.
    Hmmmmmm... Mill the head .120, port it, .100 longer valves and a reground ranger roller. :drool:

    I still wonder how accurate that dyno was.....

    Limited slip differentials use various mechanisms to allow normal differential action when going around turns. When a wheel slips, they allow more torque to be transferred to the non-slipping wheel.

    PosiTraction transfers torque from the wheel that slips to the wheel that grips. Actually, both wheels turn together; it's just that one tire slips while the other one bites in.
