506 isnt enough? No idea what kind of mods you have, suspension, etc......so I'm sure anything would be a guess. And how are you going to add more power? I mean it could handle double that with the right mods....

506 rwhp is at the top of the safety zone most feel 450 -475 rwhp to be safe without rebuilding the bottom of the block, some run higher some lower and have had a blown engine. It is now time to work on getting that power to the ground, and maybe install gt500 fuel pump.

I agree. That much to the wheels should put your Bullitt in the high 11 second range, if it hooks up. You're already pushing the limits of a stock 4.6 bottom-end.

You need to build the bottom or upgrade to a Terminator if you want to be making anymore power.

BTW... this isn't a bragging thread is it? Thats what it sounds like to me.
