  • ID1050X Injectors
  • 2.45 GripTec Upper
  • DSX Flex

  • WCCH Stage 2 Heads, milled, BTR dual springs, iconel exhaust
  • Edelbrock Heat Exchanger
  • Stewart pump
  • CPR Expansion Tank
  • Johnson Lifters, new pushrods, trays, plugs, etc
  • Amsoil in tranny, engine and diff

Marine engines normally run these - they're good for super high heat...their valve seats IIRC

Nice. How did you do on Pump 91 with this setup ? I would like to do heads and drop the pulley size down a bit more over winter.

Nice numbers.

Are you going with the Kong 108 setup or are you waiting to see if he adapts the intake and snouts to the new 112 he has been working with ?

He tested the 112mm TB on an LS9. I asked him what the gains were over a 108mm TB with a 108mm+ snout. He said "minimal."

OP, you know you are in good hands with CPR. They twin turboed my 5th Gen camaro. I was their first out of state customer.
