It's possible with the right tuning I guess I'm shocked no one on here has seen those numbers before from a n/a 4.0 ?!?!?

Not trying to hate but that still isn't 300 like you claimed, some SCs at low boost struggle to get 300 man, NA would have to be fully built to hit that

That's 283 at the crank, your not getting all that power at the wheels that's why the final is 250, and ya 250 is very respectable

I didn't think about that lol my bad but with the 8.8 rear end , one piece drive shaft , an all the suspension work done to it I'd guess a little more then 250rwhp but I'm shocked other to hear other people haven't seen those kinds of numbers from a 4.0 n/a ????

Im sorry man but that is at the wheels. It was done on a dyno jet. They don't measure the motors hp numbers. Its most likely at 310 at the crank.

I mean maybe they have and idk wat my numbers are, but the suspension and drive shaft don't deal with power, that's getting it to the ground, your tuner and full exhaust have more to do with it then that

Yeah I know I'm saying I think with the 8.8 an suspension it would put down more to the ground then what a normal v6 would with the 7.5 an the one wheel

It's cool but I know getting power from the 4.0 is a biotch but with a fully built suspension an n/a motor I'm shocked no one has heard of them putting up these numbers before ? Even with photo evidence lol
