It's a compound system, just like you see on diesels. They do it for big boost, I do it for low end power and spool. Last year I had to use a 100 shot to get a GT4294 up on the torque converter with the 2 liter, this year I'm using a 50 trim to spool a 1.32 S475 and no longer need the nitrous. :)

Looks like your off to a good start.

One tank for the engine and one for the a/w intercooler? I've thought about doing something like that. I like to drive mine on the street on occasion so probably would work for what I'm wanting to do but would kick ass for the track.

KECHME, you are pretty close by. Care to to elaborate on your set-up? Plan on running local heads-up stuff? Looks like a very promising hot rod . Good luck with it.
The engine is an LME built 422. LSX block, sonny bryant crank, GRP rods, ETP LS7X heads. I was really lookin to try and reset the LSX stock suspended radial tire record. Although, I think the LMR boys down in Houston already have me covered. They have twins on a similar engine ( damn it, they beat me to the punch :D )

I'm not sure there is anything local that will allow me to run a 114 , other than some kind of outlaw 10.5 ( and I dont think we can run with the big dogs with a stock suspended car ). I work at Corvettes of Dallas as the performance specialist/tuner and we are building this car to show case our abilities (and have some fun at the same time) :D . If I can find a local class that I can run and be competitive, we will be there.

Thanks for the well wishes , we're gonna need them. There is a pretty steep learning curve to get over on a set up like this.

Limited street you bone head! On another note,that billet 114 is MORE than enough to run the number on a small tire! The better tuner will always win on the battle of the billet 114 and twin 88 when your talking 420ci and small tires. Further more,the motor in the red car has a MUCH better topped.Ask me how i know:rolleyes:
