    I'm putting my bet on what ever ride Slow89 decided to build, he's one of the best bang for the buck fabricator on the forum.

    NO,

    I start people at zero and most go negative, although the V8 section is the best for "positives" like yourself. Completing your turbo project will be impressive.

    Well actually that list was for that how would you spend 3500

    I will be working on a setup soon although. Sometime during the summer it should be complete. I want to run everything I have as is except for porting the 882 heads I have (they respond pretty good to porting, intake flow improves from 150CFM to about 230 with bowl work and widening bowl opening to 87% of intake valve. They are the 76cc open chamber heavy duty castings) plus a t4 P trim 60mm turbo (brand new, im buying it off a friend for $300), fmic, step up to a bigger fuel pump, 3.5 exhaust, and built 8.5 rear with caltracs

    looking for 430ish (conservative, realisticly speaking you have to understand im not backing it with slicks and 9") at the wheels, hopefully the rear end doesnt grenade

    for 3500 why dont you build a sprayed alcohol engine? seems senible to me if you arent worried about street ability

    The best way to make the fastest car the cheapest is to do 2 things


    Get the lightest car you can rx7s miata's and so on own in the bang for buck races because they are light and RWD and not hard to swap a sbc into

    then get a 400sbc because you can make the most power for cheap with it

    Slackware I have never heard of gaining that much flow with 882 heads period they are also lightweight castings so you have to be careful not to hit water
    Just rev it till it goes bang..... then you know what your engine can or cant do.

    error, I meant 993s:bigthumb:

    As for best strait line performance? longetivity, streetability, etc not considered, I would say a small block nitrous setup, that I wont go into deep detail with since I really dont feel the need
