I'm a couple months away from pulling the trigger as well. Are you replacing the driveshaft? Traction bars? Are you going with oversized h/ex? Is everybody replacing the alternator at the same time? Im planning on it costing close to 15k to do mine right. Trying to get as much education as possible, thanks :)

A 715hp Raptor has a better power to weight ratio than a C6 corvette fyi.

Corvette doesn't have 35" tires.

Raptor has aerodynamics of a brick. I don't think you'll be leaving any Corvettes in the dust.

Don't get me wrong. I love my Whipple.

How will you be getting 715 hp? I have Whipple with 3.25 pulley, upgraded heat exchanger, American Racing Headers and I'm at 650 hp.
