Torque is only the pulling power, if you cant put it all to the ground youve already lost. Other than that you seem on the ball.

PS: If you got a car that can spread out the power onto the track with perfectly setup suspension the driver doesnt need to feather on loss of traction and he doesnt need to hook it from left to right to keep it in a straight line, and the driver also doesnt need to have a 400 RT considering all street application isnt simultaneus launch, and most faster cars still run tails up and dial-in/break out etc.

good day, or night, which ever it is while anybody reads this

flwlss, maybe gtr injectors as a cheaper alternative to the ones you mentioned? they've been proven to run well with high horsepower cars...

Just look at Eddie Tassone's car.. 1500hp, does 8.1sec

Should do much better than that given that kind of hp, but traction is a problem... where as cars like Pannic running 550 - 600rwkw manage 8's with a much smaller power output...

That is what FLWLSS is saying, its about how efficently your car can produce its peak power and also about how the car is set up Pannic being setup perfectly for strip use, where as tassone's car is mainly set up to be straped to a dyno.... its not about its overall power rating...

on another note, A local exhaust place down the road from me called "hannam st mufflers" quoted me $500 for a 3inch turbo back mandrel bent mild steel exhaust, this was retaining my cat, but modifying it for 3in pipe (i know thats dodgey, but it works and for $500.. whos complaining?)

I dont intend to run mufflers in my exhaust. I don't see the need.. a VL Turbo isn't exactly a loud car...

Use dont have to take my list and throw everything in ive written down this is just a list to give use an example as to what you need and prices, from there you can build your own combo, im just recommending you a list on a cheap way to get some quick times and a descent setup that should last and produce what you are after.

Id hate to put new fuel lines in! But I was looking at getting a 044 and im pretty sure that u do need bigger lines!

2 x 044's LMAO what a waste of coin these pumps are designed to flow HEAPS.
