    What’s cheating? The slip said 1/4 mile.

    I’m on a 100 shot now and have seriously been contemplating on bumping it too a 150 this weekend. Maybe a 125 just too play it safe at first

    I wouldn’t
    Stock 5.0 block is a weak link, seen block cracked in half with a little over 500 hp, lots of pics of broken 5.0 blocks on the web

    This...

    You can spray it but will you get the benefits of the full shot?? Only way to know would be on a dyno,keep stepping shot up till not making as much power for the step up or till you got nervous about the size..obviously a wet shot and progressive shot would be best..AND TUNE TUNE ..higher octane, colder plugs,bottle warmer,..etc..id stop at 250 if it was still making good power..but thats with all things working together. .these blocks can be had for cheap..

    But would i throw a direct 250 shot,hell no..even with tune,colder plugs, octane..think id quite around 150-175 just to be ""safe""

    I've had kits on almost every vehicle and built ranger 4.0ish..I've sprayed a 150 shot at 12lbs of boost with 3* taken out on E50 and it LOVES it..with boost i make more than the 150 shot advertised hp..

    With my new motor i make 18lbs and wont tell you my shot size but its built for it sooo..

    MY noids max out at 150 shot. 175 is in the works tho. I’m pulling the engine out this winter and doing a small simple build. I’m opening up the ring gap In the bottom end, adding a HO cam. Arp head studs and better valve springs. Then sending a 175 shot through it with a nitrous progressor.

    Guy out here pushing 819 on a stock block bottom end 302... so the whole always splitting at 500 is a myth

    It’s not really a myth. It’s fairly accepted, and proven, they are good up into the 500s. One thing I’ve learned about HP is that guys LOVE to guess, exaggerate, and outright lie about what they are putting down. If I didn’t see it make a dyno run, I take just about everyone’s claims with a grain of salt.

    Not always but I have seen it. Tune is crucial obviously..
    This is also going back a few years, haven’t seen it too much lately.
