Considering how few 700+ builds there are it will be tough to get any of them to go to a 1/4 mile since at that power level it will take a ton of prep to hook.
Though Phunk is in a rebuild and I bet will be back at the 1/4 with over 700 going after the 1/4 mile record for the 370z. Cycy was at 620ish and set the record recently and they are hoping to return to push it even farther.

700 can be done at the 1/4 mile but you have to dial in the suspension/wheels/tires correctly where most people just go for that nice look with suspension & wheels.

Building a motor isn't a big deal as long as you break it in properly so that the piston rings seat properly. It will add to longevity

When is the Fuel Return system required for a twin turbo build. Is it really necessary or does it depend of the injector size and pump size you're using? Or whp you're going for? Just trying to see if it is necessary cause it's a significant cost for system and install labor

Around 500 whp you will need to upgrade to a fuel return system .....factory regulator will only provide 52lbs of pressure ....regardless of fuel pump ...larger injectors will create a pressure drop as boost begins ...so once you run out of fuel pressure nothing you can do if you begin to run lean ....I just installed my return fuel kit over the same issue easy install did it in a few hours.

This is not completely true.

I'm running more than 500whp without a return system. I still have a ton of fuel pressure even WOT at 12.5lbs of boost. I talked to Phunk directly and he said it was not necessary considering my system is running with enough fuel pressure even at maximum boost to be fine. Considering I was looking to buy the system from him, I trust his judgement if he tells me I don't need to buy it.

I have made some adjustments today.

-VSR single turbo has been moved to out of business
-Gamma Motors TT/SC/Twin SC has been added
-Original GTM links and details still provided for historical purposes in out of business
-Added Topgunz Stillen Air to Air upgrade kit

It's hard to tell by pics to get details, but by looking the AAM and most TT setups, the kits eliminate the catalytic converters correct? Is there any kits that the down pipe connects to factory position CAT's? I run straight pipes but need to change out every 2 years for E-check.

The old GTM kit came with turbo down pipes that mated directly to the factory cats. I assume the current Gamma kit does the same.

Yep, I can confirm that it does.

I will be going boosted soon.

I understand a good choice of gauges will be;

A/F, and oil pressure and AT oil temp.

I will keep the factory oil temp in its place.

Can someone link me to nice gauges that will fit the factory pods for above gauges? Cheers.

I want to make sure you know about the problems with automatic transmissions...ours can't handle over 400 ft lb of torque. So if you are boosting, look into the bulletproof transmission.
