The 2011 DSM Shootout was the first time in 2011 that the Talon made a pass. The result?
The Talon made 426whp (corrected) on May 31st, 2008 at DeWitt Service Center in DeWitt, Michigan. This pull was made with very conservative timing, and 21psi of boost (the lowest I can set the wastegate.) Unfortunately, this wasn’t a complete pull on the car; I ended the pull around 6300rpm.
The chassis of the Talon was designed to run an 8.50 in the 1/4 mile, at around 150mph. With the current GT4294 turbocharger and gasoline, I’m shooting for 850bhp. This should be enough power to propel the car to the ET and MPH that I’m trying to attain.
I’m not stopping until I get some 8.50’s with the car :-)
