Awd is your best option for all intents and purposes
2wd with all that Hp is tricky

What did it dyno.

Based on my experience. Just run it on the wastegates and take some logs. If you can, have your tuner eyeball them before upping the Boost.

Get used to the feel of the jeep before going buck wild with it.

Good luck and be safe

i wouldnt worry about the rear end with the wave trac in it

go to the tree, hit the 2nd stage lights, hold brake and rev up to around 2500 rpm (if you have a converter)

on 3rd yellow let go of the brake and mash the gas pedal

see how the results are and adjust from there on
Will do this! ty!

I will let you La. guys know when Im going and please update me on something as I am not too familiar with the jeeps yet.

is auto stick Drive or is that 1st gear? I have read that my paramount tranny should shift on its own but I have not been brave enough to leave it in first and try it due to it putting down 750 awhp right now and I did not want to take a chance on it not shifting. Jeep leaned out at anything over this power level due to only have 2 walbro 255s so thats why i am getting the fuel hat, hooking up the Greddy boost controller and turning it up.

please explain what you mean by live it in auto stick. I guess you mean auto tranny which is D.

ty Jim

These may help:

I've been collecting these links for when I get to head up to the track once my rig comes back from go-fast modding.

You should probably turn the boost controller off and just run on the wastegates at low boost until you are more comfortable with how the jeep launches and runs. Turbo jeeps are a little tricky to launch at the right rpm while being able to build boost without pushing through the brakes or bogging out of the hole.
