Not to get the thread of topic, but what kind of Dyno did you run your 625 bolt on car on? Impressive numbers. When my VF car had the 620 pulley on, I did 534whp on a Dyno Dynamics. Now that I've done the 650 pulley, built motor is my last option for more power, so I'm looking forward to seeing your results in action.

Keep up the good work. Cheers.
Thank you, I ran the VT625 on the exact same dyno.

I think 750+Crank Horsepower with this type of build, blower, keeping the DCT OEM components, is more than enough, for a few reasons.

1. Keep drivability
2. Can run on 91 pump fuel
3. DCT is holding the power and torque
4. With good tires you can get traction from a 2nd gear roll
5. You will still take most of the cars out there

When you start adding more, points 1-4 will suffer, and I'm not interested in this being a garage queen that I mostly talk about in hypotheticals, I want to drive it as much as possible, turn the key and not worry about anything. You can't make this much power on the stock motor reliably, you just can't, this is the only option and currently the power #'s are actually better than I expected and have seen from any other setup, utilizing these components. I have NO plans to add more and am very happy with the car as is.
