This was exactly what I meant before^^^ I felt like it was a direct possibility on my 67 with the .82 hotside.

Now as far as spool and all is concerned- it is not going to be the most fun down low, I accept that. But I do like to drag race and I LOVE highway pulls...(to 65 mph of course...). I did bump displacement with 98mm pistons and a 3.6 crank, so should make it slightly more tolerable down low, but never fun down there I agree. Also remember that I got a full twin valute system, so that should help a little.

CopBait- thank you for that calculator, that thing is pretty cool and I urge everyone to try it, just for the hell of it. . I put in that I want about 600 horse and it spit out 51 lb/m of airflow at about 5800 rpm. Then I looked at the 4094 and at 15-17 psi and 51lb/minute is right in the area I want to be in on the map. Also offers the possibilty of 700 horse at 1.5 bar on race gas even though I won't buy/or tune race gas.
