BUT, yeah you should just get a kb, run it at decent boost untill you blow it. then build it.

also dont by a stage 3 clutch. you dont need all that. a 2 will be fine for now

I WAS GOING TO DO A STAGE 2 ANYWAY, AND A 2.2KB SHOULD NOT HURT THE MOTOR AT LOW BOOST WITH A GOOD TUNE AND CAMS, LONG TUBES AND A FULL O/R EX

2v 4.6 can make alot. just takes money. jivepepper is over 600rwhp. and there are plenty others up there with a 2v.

stock 2v shortblocks need to watch crossing past 450rwhp though.

thats right... you build it to withstand whatever and it will do a damn good job trying to do just that. Twin Turbo it with race gas etc.... it just keeps going. LOL. MONEY!!!

you could never afford that. and it would just be a pain. you could make 600rwhp with a single turbo.

why would you blow the $ and go with a twin?

naw you wouldnt want to try for 600rwhp with the stock heads. Definitely want some ported heads or maybe even the trickflows. Im thinking the only way those trickflows will live up to all the hype is with a blower. Even then im thinking a stage 3 port will hang with them.

are the trick flows the ones where the exhaust port and the intake port's are switched? a buddy of mine was talking about them
