I can't imagine where some of these figures come from, A few days ago I did a computer Sim for a new guy here, the engine had poor flowing heads,(that were supposed to have bin fully ported?) low CR, & the wrong cam, He thought his engine should have had over 400hp, it didn't, (was in the 300 area), so I jacked the CR to over 11:1 & the RPMs to over 6,000 just so he'd stop complaining about the low hp#s(real hp#s) posted previously, I would bet that even though his engine couldn't produce the HP he thought it should, he's telling people that his engine has over 400HP & it was computer simulated. It doesn't make sense to me, running off at the mouth, telling people you have way more then what you really have, what do you say when you loose the race? I left half of my HP at home tonight
Take care,
