the egt variance was over 200 deg which showed poor distribution which makes sense as the intake is designed for dry flow

after going direct port, the car picked up and ran much smoother and the variation dropped down to less the 50 deg difference

you could then "tune the pills" a bit to even that out if needed based on airflow variations in the manifold.

I'm going to give it a try on my next build but may use another set of injectors and staged fueling rather than just nozzles so I can get help from the wide band tuning and EGTs

ECS makes a nice setup, not sure of the cost, but at those HP levels I think it would help.

boost a muv!!!
not needed on my setup, and won't clutter up my engine bay with a direct port meth kit.

Got it back on the dyno with the meth kit installed to keep iats down and put the bellmouth on the supercharger.

1165 rwhp and 1004 rwtq. Favorite thing is because of the high compression I make 850 rwtq by 4500 rpm's and by 5k make right at 1k rwtq and carry it out to 7200. Who says centris can't make tq haha. Also got the new ACP carbon hood on. This thing fits absolutely like oem and is a super high quality true fully carbon hood.

Nice build. What's the backspacing on those rear wheels ? I'm looking at doing a set of 16x11 or 16x12 but I'm not to certain on a backspacing with a 28inch tall 295 drag radial.

Thank you sir! Made more power than a lot of people think a 2200R is capable of. I attached the graph to show off how much low end I make with this thing, god bless high compression and boost!!

Not really a quarter mile car, I built this for half mile. If I wanted quarter I would have done an auto swap or picked a different clutch. I love driving the rps and how it feels in rolls but I can't cut a 60 in it to save my life lol. McLeod rxt I've done 1.5-1.6 no problem. Ran the car in Tucson on 19 psi and went 10.6 @149.8 with a 2.4 60 haha. That was before the meth too so it would pull timing for the higher iats. In good air on 25 psi it should do upper 150's.
