Turbo situation is rough, Master power in brazil is under renovations in brazil and currently MIA, and i don't want to spend 1000 on a journal bearing garrett. i might guinea pig a ebay turbo

STock 3.08 open dif, i hook up wit two wheels and will keep her till i blow her
I have the money and the mechanical ability to do the 2114 but for the sake of gettin the project running and my lack of knowledge tuning i will run what the past builder ran on this 4.3 an Aeromtive A1000 EFi regulator with a 1:1 refrence for boost. This setup took his 3800lb blazer to a 13.4 on the 1/4 at 8psi, at 10psi he was lean so for starters i will run this.
I would love to run the RPM 2114 setup and tunercat but i don't have a shop that can help nor my own personal knowledge about tuning. I will run an Innovate Wideband but have not selected which yet, its confusing.
First goal 300whp 320lbs torque low 13second slip or atleast MPH good low 13's
Second goal 450whp MEth injection, 2114, tunercat, MSD 6a and distributor 14psi
