    Thanks for the comments Liquifire!

    It has had one dyno which was a mustang dyno. Runs about 14% below the Dynojet dynos. On the Mustang dyno on pump gas it was 1012rwhp/975tq at only 18 pounds. I expect it would be close to 1100 on 18 pounds on a dynojet. We actually never got finished with the tune till we started more work on the heads and putting on TC76's. I would not be surprised to see about 1200rwhp when all is said and done.

    Your gonna love the TC76's I run one of them and put down 650 rwhp on 10 lbs of boost. They are very nice little turbos that can take a beating and are very reliable.

    Yep...........my builders have done twins on a camaro with a 370ci motor but they were 60mm's I think. I don't think 76's would cause that much trouble with more ci. I know that car ran right at nine seconds in the 1/4 and if the fool owner had stopped screwing with it he would have gone into the eight second range.

    I am talking with FI about their 78mm's (TC78) as it may work out better with my ci.

    Yea you might as well step up to the TC78 it will spool just as fast as the 76 pretty much. Joze @ FI is real helpful huh? He knows a lot about turbos and what works best. I would just go two TC78's and be done.

    Motor has finished it's workout on the engine dyno. We changed the geometery of the cam a bit to increase the lifter time. Should be back in the car by early next week. Back on the road by early April. More updates to come.

    We had a real issue with the World heads. Not sure who to point the finger at here but went with an all new set. This required us to pull the motor back out, replaced most the forged internals (at builders expense), so while we were at it changed cam specs. Went with larger turbos and had to put it through it's paces back on motor dyno. I guess ya got to break just a few eggs to have a breakfast!

    Don't get me wrong....nothing wrong with the builders.....they have been great and very patient with all my changes. Hell, they changed out most of the forged parts at their own expense even though there was no evidence of any damage. Been very happy with the builder.
