Default Hellion Turbo Kit, AFR 185's, BBK SSI

ok hellion turbo kit, planned for the end of august

I'm thinking i'll throw on a BBK SSI intake and AFR 185 heads too.

should throw down an easy 500 to the ground

i was just thinking that after the turbo kit, $5500CAD

the AFR heads ($1500CAD) and the BBK intake ($850CAD)

are only gonna give me about another 100 RWHP on top of the hellion kit.

and thats a lot of money for that kind of increase i guess, still well worth it,

but i was wondering if anyone had any alternate idea about juicing the turbo kit for more power

without running more boost.

just looking for a game plan

thanks everyone

that's the price you gotta pay to keep getting more power dude. once you hit the 500hp mark, shat gets REAL expensive lol...

that's why i'm not there yet.

and no, i have no ideas.. no cheap ones anyways

run dish pistons and you can run a real aggressive timing curve, that will help

also www.snowperformance.com, this would allow to you run an even more aggressive timing


in the hellion artcl they got 465rwhp off 185's, TFS intake, stock cam and stock exhasut
remember also that they were in NewMexico at an altitude of probably 3,000'
if you're at lower altitude it will make more power.

with 185's, good intake, good cam and exhaust.... you should push 500rwhp.
you can always do somethings like........underdrive pullies, electric fan, windage tray ..... those things togther will add another 20 or so hp.

personally I'm going with the following set-up and plan on putting it in the shop for engine
rebuild at end of the month.

306 overbore rebuild with forged dish pitson and windage tray and girdle support
Thumper ported stock heads
Ford "F" cam
Trickflow intake
70mm TB
underdrive pullies
electric fan

Figuring this should get me right at 500rwhp.
