how high is high? 12.5:1 isn't THAT high if you think about it... they're on 91 pump! you've ran cartel stage 4 on 11.1 comp?

Quick question regarding your fuel set up, what fuel pressure are you running with 410cc injector? what duty cycle were they at? are they pretty much maxed out?

Im building a set-up that probably around 290-300whp maxed and was considering 750cc injector but if 410cc rdx is capable i would love to use those.

This was a nice build, lots of time and $ to make it come out right 👍
Yeah, lot's of passion for details like the insulation and friction coated pistons.
Maybe the huge cams would have need a better fitting IM, peaking at 7500 rpm with DC 4.5 cams is way to early. Smaller cams like the DC 3.5 would be a better fit to the used IM, so my assumption. Would be nice to see more of such built long blocks.

Merry Christmas guys 😊
