    not really a blower guy, but depending on the overdrive and the fuel used I don't see why it could not get to that number. Any specifics in regards to Compression and if it has a chiller?

    The pulleys and resulting boost will determine horsepower (and fuel requirements). I put together one that was set up to be a reliable pump gas engine, low boost through an intercooler, made 900 hp on a very well known dyno.

    As it happens, that engine is in a Southwind tunnel, with a pump set up by B1. I want to say the impeller is cut down a bit, but would need to check, the engine was my department.
