If your REAL serios about it, you could talk to somebody in the industry. The right people will know the numbers better, for example, lowering your compression to run more boost, The turbo (s) to make said boost, and what Injectors will run good with that setup. Instead of just throwing stuff together.

Then get a good pulling file from someone. I'm sure DP or Elite or Wildman could hook you up with a good one. Terminator Big Oil, Water/Meth Injection, a solid transmission of course, and probably a locked or lockable rear, and maybe front.

Just guessing cuz Im not really much into pulling.

A solid front axel would frobable be a good Idea. What kind of transmission are you running?
