Well, I run a 12 valve, but when I see somethin like this I gotta look. Im pretty sure you need twins to push those #'s, not to mention a single would take forever to spool. Maybe s300 over s400?

5.0sabbath5.9,

I haven't dynod mine but I am pretty close to your objective.

I saw 1550 degrees yesterday and I'm thinking about bigger turbos......A single would be undrivable on the street and it would take a huge shot of nitrous to get it rolling.

Though my truck is "streetable" it takes a delicate touch to keep it right side up. You might want to stop at 5-600hp before trying to live with 800. At 525hp I could street race and beat 99% of the guys in the city.....I couldn't even think about it now.

Trying to stop 8000 pounds of wildly accelerating truck gets interesting and it takes alot of space.

Driving a 800 hp truck on the streets is an exercise in self control. Quite frankly it is like trying to contain a big angry rottweiler in a pillow case.....It can be done, but odds are it will get out!

Unless you wanna run a big K31 turbo as a single @ 800hp, go for twins a whole lot more street friendly, and still make plenty of power.

From what is available now, 62/71-14 over an S480 with race cover.

Are you looking for 800 on fuel alone or will NOx/Watermeth play into the equation? Twins will have better street manners at that level, and will be far better if you ever want to think about towing.

you are aware of the cost of 800 hp, right? youre also aware of how smokey that is ALL THE TIME? go in progression, dont just buy a truck and say 800 is what i want.
FWIW a customer of mine made 650/1438 on the dyno at TST (always reads low) a 12v and ran 11.7's consistently.
