Mid 30s? I think that's probably pushing it. I'd believe mid-high 20s though. I get 27+ if I keep my 4.6L Mustang around 60-65.

How about two four bangers inline? How hard would that be? Maybe you could couple them with some sort of one way clutch so you could shut down or idle the front engine when it's not needed. When it is needed you could fire it up and they could run together for double the horsepower.

Yes, I know that's very elaborate and probably incredibly expensive but I'm bored and feel like sharing silly ideas.
