I've played around with a few ET calculators but how much power is needed to go 8.9 with a 3000lb car? It will be a 4th gen camaro.

I know I may get harassed with a general question like this but lets just say the suspension is done right and the car can hook decent with a fogger out of the hole.

I had a crappy 1978 TA tht was mini tubbed with a 555 and a 300 fogger I went 8.7s!! Id say motor made 700 to 800 horse plus the 300 so 1000 to 1100 power should do I think?

660hp on the motor. 400hp of nitrous. 3500lbs= 8.60s when everything is right.

I have a 3rd Gen that weighs 3200 with me. Made 625hp at the tires with a 150hp shot and went 9.2-9.3 @ 146-146. So, I figure you need at least 800hp at the crank to push 3000lbs to 8.9 in the 1/4.
