I've read it all before just don't wanna do it again lol
You might look in to the Snake Eater Performance 102mm DBW. Yes, they have a very Ebay-esque name but a ton of people myself included have not been disappointed by their products. A lot of people use their injectors but I'm running the 102mm without any issues. Tuner had no problem with it either. I believe the issue with a lot of these larger DBW throttle bodies was solved when hpt released a patch that addressed it. Best part about the Snake Eater unit though... $275. Not sure what the rules are on linking nonvendor websites, but a quick google search of their name will take you there.
Try not to advertise parts in someone else’s build thread. I’m perfectly happy with my Granatelli Motorsports 103mm TB.
*Also, any HP Tuners “patch” you’re referring to would not fix the issues people have that are making big power or lots of boost. It has to do with the TB motors being strong enough under boost/high load.
Lol just trying to help the guy out since he was curious and price point seems to be a big factor on these dbw units
What's her race weight with you in it? We can figure this out mathmatically.
Rear Wheel Horsepower = Race Weight X ((Trap Speed X 0.00426)^3)
Your guess is as good as mine... I don't have a set of scales but one could assume that it's just under 6k lbs. Lets say 5,800 lbs to be conservative.
5800 X ((124 X 0.00426)^3) = 855 rwhp which is pretty close to what I was guessing (curb weight is 5,635 lbs)
That's awesome, always enjoy watching your short clips on youtube! What would you figure the motor's output to be without the supercharger? I sometimes dream of a 402 and wonder what kind of power it would make while still retaining good street manners and reliability for 200K miles.
I’d say it’s probably making at least 600hp N/A. Obviously the camshaft would ideally change with no blower but I’d say that’s a pretty good estimate given the current output. Generally 1hp per cube is standard in a N/A factory application and usually 1.5hp per cube in a high performance build. No reason you can’t have performance and reliability at the same time.
