    I miss Jake’s bone breaking hugs every year. Like seriously, it honestly hurt, but I looked forward to the pain.

    If I can get real close to 500 RWHP I will be happy.

    I'll build the rotating assembly to handle way more than that, but I really like the Trilogy setup. It's so clean and compact. If 500 is its limit, so be it.

    Dragcity Marauder - Build it plan

    I was happier when my car had 440ish at the wheels, overall drive ability was better, 500+, plan on, bigger brakes, built trans, Dyno tech driveshaft, new rear control arms, adjustable rear shocks, widened wheels, race fuel, then wait for the next weak point. I’ve lived the dream, wish I wouldn’t had modded the car to the point of being un-drive able , the wins were epic, but the cost to get there was phenomenal.

    I took heed of some of the issues you had and built the rear end prior to blowing it to pieces, I was on borrowed time

    I have the Detroit Trutrac with 31 spline axles and solid control arms. Transmission is going out for a rebuild as it has over 100,000 miles on it and lots of Trliogy miles. I will take note of that comment that 440 was more fun than 500. I really do enjoy driving the car. 8 already have the widened wheels. Nitto Drag radials installed. Upgraded rear shocks. Drive shaft is the only thing in that mix that is stock. I did replace u joints.

    What do you think about me re-using the Teksid Mark viii stock crank? It's nodular. Although, if I stroke it, I'll need a new crank anyway. I'll just go forged then...

    I was able to get the Teksid block all torn down. The rod and main bearings barely have a polish on most spots. Crank is perfect. Bores are perfect.

    I need to do some careful grinding work on the Knock sensor bosses and six tabs up high on the sides of the valley so the intercooler clears.

    I am still not sure if I want to stroke this engine or not. The bores could probably stay standard bore at 3.552. The stock crank is Nodular from my research. Could be re-used ??

    What I have been reading about stroking is, I'll need to increase boost to realize any notable gains from stroking. I was only at 9.7# so I have a little to gain in that area.

    Stock crank good for 600+ hp. Mine is stock, nitride coated. I don't feel stroking with a Trilogy is worth it. It's a 1.9 blower. It has its limits, I'm pushing mine over too far. It's a street car to me

    Good advice right there. I don't want to push anything over 75% of its capabilities. I love driving this car and like to beat on it once in a while. Never going to be a track car. Once in a while to the strip for some fun runs with the local folks, but my racing days are over.

    Thanks a lot everyone.

    Those are good numbers. What compression ratio is your engine?

    ON that note about compression ratio... How high can I go? I think I saw some 11.0:1 pistons out there. If I am not going over 10 lb of boost from the standard Trilogy Supercharger, the compression ratio can go up, as long as all those whacky valves clear.
