correct, the 1.7 rockers give up about 10-12hp as per the Carcraft cam test a while back. So with the stock rockers, both cams have the same lift

Great work!
Were you able to do any complete pulls at the event? What MPH were you able to achieve?
Any concerns with respect to emptying the surge tank before you reach the end on the longer runs? I haven't run any math on how much fuel volume would be required to make a pull at your power level, but it's something I would do if I owned the car.

No full pulls at the track (throttle body issues) but once I swapped throttle bodies I did a lot of Mexico racing. I don’t have an ET or MPH yet but ill Post them soon. I can tell you on the street I beat a few cars that were in the event trapping 150+ in the roll race

The car makes ales a little more power now with some more boost but I drove it to the tack, drove it back home, drove it to the meet, and made a bunch of pulls without running Lean or running out of fuel.

When I first did the fuel setup, I was scared that I was going to empty the surge tank under boost and that the 255 intank wouldn’t be able to keep up... but so far so good. May be an issue In the standing full 1/2 mile but not sure. Works great on the street

Which throttle body were you running and what did you switch to? I had a similar issue on my NW102 but I'm just N/A. It would go into REP mode randomly with quick throttle input changes. Switched to the LS2 throttle body and the only time I've had issue since the switch was on a slippery track where I had to rapidly pedal the car.

I was running an ls3 TB and switched to an ls2 TB. So far so good
