88mm turbos in forged Chevys can make 1000+ horsepower! How crazy would it be to have even 600rwhp!

Maybe I can break open my anorexic piggy bank and buy that old turbo off you for my charger. Or you could do compound turbos.....

Make sure you leave some money in the budget for a set of slicks for the track so we can put a real time down.

If you and mike think its something you want to tackle we'll have to figure out the logistics. I leave for another 6 month vacation in September so you'd have plenty of time before I come home in March. I know you guys are really busy building 545s so if might not be in the cards. They don't want me getting too bored so I'll be doing a 8-10 month stint starting January '15 too if that is better.

I think about 650-700rwhp would be a realistic goal.

We'll tackle damn near anything. Now whether its worth it or not is a different story.

I'm pretty sure Mike will agree that your build moves to the top of the list. We will get what you want done and fit everything else in around it.

I'd like to just round it off at an even 1000hp. What do you think?

Thanks. L&M customs turns out a nice product. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that there are a ton of options within the "kit".....literally every item has more than one choice or some things can be skipped over (coatings, meth, etc). I think going my route with built trans, all the "extras" I added, labor and tuning ended up about 9k or so. I would suggest getting in touch with MGH and laying out what all you have in mind and he'll be able to give you a better figure.
