wanting to upgrade 122 to tvs2300 questions inside

It's running. Have been tuning it for a few days. It's about 80% done.

Here's a crappy cell phone video.


Special thanks to Kyle aka silverstreak04 and Josh aka LSPWR




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbWZxDpOHnI

update 9/16/09 parts arriving see pics below.

I am wanting to upgrade to a TVS2300 and hopefully get to 800hp.

Currently my 122 is polished overdriven and had 65lb injectors making 11.2 lbs. of boost. I will be selling it outright when this is all worked out.

Right now I am trying to figure out if the 2300 will fit. And by fit, I mean with my ABEAR valve covers.

Anyone know the dimensions of the 2300? Or does anyone know if the 2300 is the same or what is different compared to the 1900? I have a friend that has a 1900 new in the box, I could use it to take measurements, etc.


oh.... the 122 will be up for sale for $3500.00

Options:
Polished = $1100.00 see major website to verify this
overdriven = $500.00
60lb injectors =$360.00

that's $1960.00 in options. If you currently have a maggie 112 it's a simple swap and sell the 112 for a couple grand. If you do not have a maggie, you will need to buy box #2 (hardware, air handler, pump, etc) for about $1700.

Tom

Have ordered:
Lonnie's Performance fuel system

8 Ribbed pulley system


SCSS TVS motor mounts


About to order the 2300 cogged on the rear, overdriven, chromed. Any other options to consider? (update 9/14/09 2300 ordered)
already checked my cam specs with Ed, all good there.
Currently using the katech belt tensioner. Options to consider?
What else???? killer chiller system?

UPDATE... Chromed 2300

The physical measurements say it will fit Tom. But like we discussed earlier on the phone, height will be an issue we'll have to look into. Scss tvs motor mounts may not give enough clearance. (We can always break out the plasma cutter....)

But if I had to guess, I would venture to say it has something to do w/ Hendrix Engineering and some fiberglass????
