Maybe you should wait till everyone gets up.
I would run 80 pounds of boost....all in by .8 into the run.

Talk to tyrefryins10 or something like that, he did a 5.3 turbo build in a Fairmont that was absolutely sick! And cheap!

Also do a search of the screen name "Ulitmate346" I think he went 8's with a 5.3 block and turbo in a Nova.

Blow-thru carb setup? Why not EFI?

I think that combo could run high 9's on pump gas no problem.
