Goals and reality need some help here

OK I'm running ms2 23.5 lb injectors basically stock ignition.

Maf delete

Schrick 284 cam

I have a turbo manifold on the way and intend to run maybe an hx35 turbo intercooled

Am I gonna be able to put 250 to the wheels with this recipe?

Of not what am I missing?

Needs bigger injectors. HX35 is overkill for so little power, will lag like heck. Get a smaller or more modern turbo. Pointless to use such a big turbo unless you're going for big power and don't mind the lag. For 250whp go with a T3 super 60 or something, that way you get good boost response.

Thanks for the feed back! I definitely don't want Abby more lag than is necessary. I'll be looking into the super 60.

The Ford 40# injectors are perfect for your application.
Like has been said, hx35 is a bad turbo for 250... I like Garrett so would use a GT2860rs for your goal.

I'll be looking into the Garrett as well and the 40lb injectors! Thank you!
