2nd run 615 HP w/ 6lbs boost. (ordered driveshaft and new waste gate springs, which is why we stopped tuning).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTujavV0ypM. (My first time back in the driver seat and starting for the first time) I didn't rev it hard since it was cold and I want the final tune done before I go ripping into it. it sounded crazy!! Cant wait for 7/26. Should be picking it up.

I will post some of the build photos.

This sounds like a great build! I am at 5psi with a supercharger over 600hp. I can tell you are turned way down on the boost. Your truck will scream later with that high end tune. Are you doing boost by gear?

Yes, It's turned down significantly. At the end of the build the goal is 1000 whp. I still need a few things but they'll have to wait. New transmission (MadDogs transmissions. they make the destroyer rated at 1000 hp). Stronger Tie rods, rear axel, transfer case, etc etc. . . Here are some of the build photos.
