Meh, Put that bitch on the 1.5 mile oval and see what it can do.
180MPH top speed limited electronically. Answered your question.

Why? Useless performance evaluation. No one cares about oval performance. Even the aero isn't suited for that, but for road course.
It's not made for drag racing either, but you don't hear anyone complaining that they're running it down the strip repeatedly. Everyone is jerking themselves off to the quarter mile times. lol.

Saying it hit 136 on a front stretch without any other info or comparisons is useless too. My '14 GT can go 136 somewhere too.

If you think that, you dont know performance

Are u implying Eaton doesnt make both and the aftermarkets dont have different cases?
The GT500, Roush, VMP Gen 3/3R, Edelbrock, Magnusson all use the Eaton TVS 2650 rotor pack.
The blower case, configuration and intercooler are all different.
Now what’s really interesting to me is thinking what this 2650 TVS on this 5.2 will do with 18psi, E85 (or appropriate higher octane fuel), and an aggressive timing curve for a cooled engine.
The answer is 4-digit power. Tremec did say they tested the DCT at significantly higher power levels.
That Draggy box should get you some good numbers when someone maximizes this combo.

Additionally, Owens stated this one was designed to sit physically lower in the V. Interesting to see if that limits potential at all

I don’t think that will be the case, but the restriction I see will come from the front feed TB snout. Only so much room in there and these PD blowers always pick up by eliminating as much restriction as possible in front of the rotors. Lowering the blower improves the CG and allows the largest intercooler brick they could fit, so that’s all good, just need to see if there’s ways to open up the inlet path/TB size.
