I'll break the silence then.
Back to the shift kit, how complicated is it to install? From reading that little bit o' info it sounds fairly hard.

Mark:

If you're truly making 304 WHP on 24 pound/hour fuel injectors, that equates to 50.7 WHP per cylinder. Extrapolated to the 50 pound/hour fuel injectors run in the fastest L67-powered cars, that would imply the possibility of 101.3 WHP per cylinder. Now, taking that back to six cylinders would mean 608 WHP is achievable with the 50 pounders that we run. And 608 WHP is roughly equivalent to 751 crank horsepower. I know from personal experience that 50 pound fuel injectors (in a six cylinder engine) max out slightly over 400 WHP, or 500 crank horsepower. For you to somehow have exceeded our linear results by 50 percent seems highly improbable to me.

So, I invite you to PLEASE come to INTENSE Drag Day IV and give us a little demonstration of your power. With 304 WHP, you'd EASILY win the Naturally Aspirated class.

When Scott Cook tells you it is "highly improbably," that basically means it isn't possible, Scott isn't an amature at this you know. But as he said, show up to Intense Drag Day and prove him wrong. I would love to see the demonstration of your car'* power. As Scott said, you would easily win the N/A class, and I can tell you there would be quite a few people taking a lot of pictures.

I hope you weren't refering that to me..
I meant it made no sense bout how he went into the calculations.. that just went "woosh" over my head..

Wat Scott says I will agree with.. even though I probably don't understand it.. but if he believes it.. that'* good enough for me.. he won't stear us wrong.

Yea, that shift kit looks like a nice mod, but I would also like to know how hard it is to install.
