That combo' is one of the faster results I've seen with the Novi 2000. I'm not sure what the potential of the newer Novi 2200 (JT-Trim Vortech) is but, congrats on your E.T.'s.

Your doing real well if your in the 8.80 range at that weight. 55k on the impellar is fine as there is some safety factor into the 55k limit that was built in. You could probably run up to 60k but you will be pushing your luck.

I spin about 53k and run 9.20s at 3280 on a 351w


Curious what are all details about the car? Shift points, tires, gears, tranny....ect

that is twisting it for sure. the numbers dont lie but i cant help thinking that it might be faster with less gear. that is flying .

nice car.

When greco ran pro 5.0, he always had 4 or 5 back up blowers in his trailer. He and Dave Zarlow did most of the testing for Paxton.

NICE! is that with the old setup? i remeber you posting some pics of a motor with trickflow, 8" crank pulley, and some other stuff.
Yes, that was the first all out pass with the new motor. It's a stock cube LS2 (budget build) w/Trickflows, 10 rib 8"- 3" setup.
Tune is conservative for now (can't afford anything to go wrong)
Looking to go 8.5 this fall. Meanwhile I race 9.50 index with it.

I usually shift around 6800-7000. Last year I was going through the traps at 7k. (7.5" balancer & 3.25 pulley)

This year shifting the same and I forgot to look at trap rpm.
(I also changed from 3:90's to 3:42's)
