Sorry you have a total of 3548cc total for 560hp so that's 5322cc I need on methanol for same hp

So let's say I want to achieve double your hp so that's double the boost and double the fuel

Thats a total of 10,644cc which works out at running 5 x 2200cx injectors

I'm thinking of running smaller primaries just to help get it started but I need to ask people that are going to supply me with an ecu and tune what to do.

This is a very simple way to explain it all as it doesn't always translate to double the fuel and boost to equal double the hp

I was originally thinking that but you can't have a streetcar/drag car without there being some sort of compromise.

Building it as a race car so that if I get bored of drag racing it won't take much to turn it into track car

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Yeh thats what I was thinking, just use some smaller ones to get it started.

I will ask James about how he gets his started as mine is going to be prety much a copy of his, apart from he's using billet plates

Although the ignition I'm getting will ignite prety much anything

What coils you are going to use?

Cause IGN 1A style coils arent enough. You need s**tloads of electricsity to spark plugs

Bosch coils with an M&W Pro drag 4 ignition system

Drag use only ignition, I won't have any firing issues with that

Sooooo it's amazing what you ca pick up from watching such YouTube videos as Bad Obsession Motorsports and how to apply things to my own car.

There currently building a race car for the new series city car Cup and a simple rule they have to follow for safety is removal of the bonnet catch....

Iv been trying to retain my bonnet catch mainly just because it helps align the bonnet and the front bar keeps the light sin place, however iv been cutting it away piece by piece to fit my radiator and fuel cell panel, however iv decided to get rid of most of it now.

Will get some pics this week as might get a few hours on it and get all the suspension back on as it's been on stands for far too long now

It’s a good series that,

The 4wd mini they did was cool too

Clever pair and they don’t have an annoying yank accent like most YouTube car based channels

Yeh they put a lot of effort into it too with the script instead saying erm all the time whilst trying to think of words.

Cell and rad panel no bolted to the front rather than squeezing it in the back.

Going to maybe lift it a litlle more and cut a bit away of what's left of the front panel. Then try think of ways to add a couple of braces to guve it a bit of strength and a tab or 2 for holding the head lights as I might at some time need them, but most likely not
