Default 2.3 whipple

ok so i have been looking into the 2.3 whipple and i was wondering if anyone knew what it would be capable of on pump gas. i would also add meth injection. i might be wrong but shouldnt that allow me to advance the timing and add more boost? if so what do you think i would max out at without have to jump up to 110 octane or more?

I was going to do a 2.3L Whipple this winter....With pump gas & a 3.0" upper pulley I know you'd be at the 600 RWHP range, 17psi I believe on pump gas with the correct supporting cast...

Thought about E85???

well my 2.3 is at 20psi with a 3.0 pulley and my meth starts spraying at 10psi...air/fuel is 10.3 at 16 degrees of timing and i make 650hp/600tq....im basically maxed with my fuel set up which is just a KB BAP with a new return style sytem you can get round 750 before you switch over any higher you risk it....meth does make a night and day diff in the heat you will love it

That's way too rich! 11.0
afr is already extremely conservative and safe. Why are you running low 10 afr? Too much fuel can lead to problems with your motor. Specifically with your piston rings and cylinder walls...

I'm not sure what you're asking? How do I have it wired? It runs through a relay... If that's what you're asking...
