About the calls, I have been talking to blowme944 and his team and he completely doubts that your car ever exceeded 350hp @ the wheels

I sure hope so, if hasn't blown a head gasket again, he is a garage genius he has managed to extract as much as 500hp out a 454 big block.

Add a 2 in front of that number and you might be closer

BTW why you F'n with me. I had nothing to do with your busted rainbow bash.

Happy New Year

So what is the number to beat? 600 BHP or was it 600 RWHP? I wonder if I would be eligible with a BHP number. My guy used to build 1200+BHP engines from 1500cc engines. I figure if it can be done he may know how to.

WHP. I believe the number to beat is 602. (On a stock 2.5 bottom end if you wanna get picky)

that is the ****tiest trophy ever the lettering is in pencil.
And it cost about 50 grand and 7000 hrs of your life to win .
and i realy don't think any thing else has come close 602whp from a 2.5 standard bottom end on pump gas is really something special the only other things making that many chickens are expensive 3.0's on E85
standard studs too ?
may i ask how many cam profiles it took to get there,?
and at what RPM ?

Would that be a stock 2.5 turbo bottom end or stock N/a bottom end? I was thinking about twin turboing the N/A and maybe a 250 NAWS shot? any chance anyone could tell me what would be needed to TT the N/A??
