Seems like the 900 hp mark may be ambitious for these continuous hard pulls. Thoughts? I had the plan to do a full bolt on but...

Stangmodes is pretty heavily modified. I don't watch him often because of all the clip baity shit, but if I recall he has:

Custom cams
Ported blower
Ported throttle body
Intake
Headers

Maybe more?

I heard stangmode was still running stock injectors but not sure if anyone can confirm that or not. Lund told me the factory injectors are maxed out with 93 Octane fuel at upper 700s with a 2.6 upper pulley and stangmodes car was supposedly in the 900hp range so if he wasn't running higher flow injectors his car had to be really lean.

I won't give him a watch, hes the type of automotive youtuber I can't stand. Zero engaging content, can't speak to the engineering of a vehicle. Just the same street racing BS over and over. There's posting worthy and interesting content and then there is posting content for clicks of which he's the latter.

I'm SHOCKED that heavily modifying a 760hp engine would result in it blowing up....

From what I've been reading he had injectors but wasn't running a voltage booster on the factory fuel pump and was right at 1000hp and his car went lean.
