there is no such thing as too little power. 1000hp from a turbo setup, that is amazing. Is this a i6 or a Windor setup? BTW how much does it hurt the pocket?

Why not just lift the motor out of your Benneton F1 car and use that instead??

Ever heard of a certain part of an EB motor called a head gasket?

Also, there is no way the standard drivetrain could handle that sort of power, if the engine could deliver it. You'd be looking at re-engineering the whole car for starters.

I think that even if you could get that power from the engine, you'd be foolish to, as the reliability would be next to zero. I assume this was a somewhat rhetorical question!

Cheers

With all things you can do it but you need more that 8k for this one.

I calculated that you'd need to have a turbo capable of producing at least 70psi boost. I dont know how big your inter-cooler will have to be, but for the heat the turbo will produce, it'll have to be pretty big. To be able to force such a huge amount of air down its throat you'll need some really expensive cam with lots of duration. You'll probably need to upgrade the cooling system as well otherwise the 6 will be a pile of molten metal. Could I suggest a super refrigerant of some sort? The oil is probably going to get hot so to stop it getting cooked and coking i suggest quite a big oil cooler too.

What do you plan to run the car on?? Standard lawnmower juice won't cut it. I dont know much about what drag racers use but maybe ethanol?? Anyway it won't be legal on the street.

I have no idea how you'll reinforce the block to stop it turning into snow once you hit the boost.

Anything Ive missed? Probably.

Not a hope in hell. This guy you know is on drugs.. Sorry but those claims are rather fanciful. I'll be quite happy to be proved wrong though..
