All stock. Spraying meth as a backup. Coming up on a year now. MGH has been running his twins at the same level for a couple years.

I have build thread in the 5.7 section if you search for it.

Twin turbo hands down look at the fastest cars in the world right now all turbo cars.... I would love to see somebody boost my truck for me lol but im Years away from that... Would be nice to see what kind of numbers this motor would put down but it needs a trans first that got pushed back also...

I have build thread in the 5.7 section if you search for it.
I'm currently shopping water/meth kits too, helps cool the charge and safer for the motor under higher boost correct? For about $500?

Once I get an MGH built trans I plan to exceed Ripp's tuned stock shift points (designed to protect a stock trans)
For sure their 7lbs of boost currently capped at 5600 rpm is going to climb considerably at 6200- 6400 RPM.

an extra 600-800 rpm at the motor is squared exponentially with a centrifugal supercharger
so I'll bet she can gain an extra 3 pounds of boost just by raising the shift points.






This Company came Highly recommended by MGH: http://www.alcoholinjectionsystems.com/
They will custom design a kit to meet your setup and their prices seem quite reasonable...

Trunk mount 3 Gal kit is $469 ,


Fender Mount 3 quart is $399



Lower Air Temps By 50-250+ Degrees & Increase Power 10-15% With ONLY Windshield Wiper Fluid!
That's right! Using nothing more then windshield wiper fluid you can quickly achieve the benefits of a water
methanol injection system. Best of all, it's very easy to locate just about anywhere in the states and cost only $2.00-$3.00 per gallon. But not just any windshield wiper fluid will do. You'll need to buy the windshield wiper fluid that is rated for negative 20 degrees or greater below zero. It is only this windshield wiper fluid, which contains a 50% content or greater of methanol. Using strictly windshield wiper fluid you can expect to see a 50-250+ degree drop in air intake charge temperatures on supercharged and turbocharged engines with horsepower gains ranging from 10-15% are common. (temperature drops and horsepower gains vary depending on engine build, type supercharger or turbocharger used, amount of boost and intercooled or non-intercooled)
110+ Plus Octane With ONLY Wind Shield Wiper Fluid!

Thats right! Using nothing more then windshield wiper fluid as listed above you can effectively increase your 91-93 octane pump gas by 10-20+ points dramatically increasing your fuels octane rating well over 100+ octane. No need for expensive racing fuels which can cost as much as $16.00 per gallon at some race tracks. Windshield wiper fluid cost's only $2.00-$3.00 per gallon. Even better our 3 gallon trunk mount container will last up to 4-6 weeks before needing to be refilled on a typical 500-600 horsepower supercharged or turbocharged motor costing you only pennies more per gallon to have 100+ octane.
Water Alcohol/Methanol Injection = Cheap Insurance For Your Motor

You wouldn't drive your car with out car insurance. Now there's insurance for your motor. Protect your motor and the investment you have in your motor with proven lower air intake charge temperatures by 50-250+ degrees and increased octane by 10-20+ points. Together this will reduce and help eliminate engine damaging detonation. It's cheap insurance for your motor.

I've got Randy at http://www.alcoholinjectionsystems.com/
working on a custom kit for me on MGH's recommendations
I'll likely be around $299 or less all said and done.

thanks Again Mike

No extra tuning required for extra detonation insurance,
and I can safely add timing on my Trinity when my 94 Octane fuel gets bumped to 116 with a shot of -20ºF Windshield Washer fluid.

Who needs to spend big bucks on nitrous,
when washer fluid goes for $2-$3 a gallon?


Benefits Of Water Methanol Injection:
  • Lower air charge temperatures by 50-250+ degrees
  • Reduces cylinder temperatures up to 300+ degrees
  • Increase your 87-93 pump gas by 8-20+ points
  • Increase horsepower safely by 10-15%
  • Allows you to safely run more boost and timing
  • Cools and protects the tops of your pistons and upper ring
  • Longer more stable combustion expansion and progression
  • Removes carbon build up from combustion chambers, pistons and valves
  • Reduces & helps eliminate engine damaging detonation & pre-ignition
  • No need for expensive racing fuel or additives

Going to be well over 500HP/TQ at the wheels in AWD on 4 28" Drag Radials with close to 10psi boost before the end of the season.

The new MGH Trans is currently in tear down mode on the bench at L&M Customs
to be rebuilt with a dozen+ extra upgraded frictions, Valve body and pump mods to increase pressure.
New ATS 3000 stall Triple disc Torque Converter has been ordered as well by MGH at his cost.

Yup, I'm running the same meth kit. Mine shifts 300-400 higher than programed. We set it at 5800 for 6200 or so rpm shifts. Sorry for the late response...I'm out to sea right now.

Just an FYI, from the reading I've done, these engines will start to fail around 450hp. The weak link at about 450hp are the pistons and connecting rods. Transmission can't handle much more either unfortunately. I wanted to go with the Roots style blower, just not in my budget to buy a complete short block and transmission that can take the power.
Good luck!
