sounds pretty solid. My guess is your gonna need some axles and rubber to handle it. Not sure it will make the 9s though it should be close.

I just tuned a similar setup with a SMS blower. Car made 650rwhp on 12psi spinning the blower as hard as it could be spun. Car would probably show close to 700rwhp on another dyno.

If you net that, you should be close to 9's, I'd say low 10's no problem. Shot of nitrous and 9's would be easy.

Good luck with your build, sounds like a nice setup they are doing for you. Atleast your car will be in some warm weather! Minnesota is getting pounded with snow as bad as we are here in Illinois!

Got to 3 pumps at 800rwhp. If using 2 pumps I wouldn't worry too much about a return line unless you are making less than 600rwhp. Once you go to three pumps, I wouldn't hesitate to go to a return style.

i would say keep the 3 pump at that level your gonna be pushing the limit to get to 9's
the only thing i see that you did'nt list would be bigger injectors.
and of course the required saftey equipment.
if you do need to juise it for 9 then the 3 pumps will come in handy once you cross that 800rwhp mark which you will need to do to run 9

how does that blower handle the heat at the higher boost level?
you may need some kind of ice box also, but i don't know anything about that blower

Can a 2.3l blower even make 15psi on a 426? Seems like it is not large enough to make that much pressure on a motor flowing that much air.

That's why I asked what the CR was going to be. And it' not just the size of the SMS unit, yes it can be spun up, but there are other limitations with the SMS unit.

but if he does juice it to get to the 9's it should make over 800 i would think
