from what i read here it seems the best way to go faster is more HP so in turn you can turn your imp faster. seems logical. does engine torque play into any part of the effect?
im asking these as extreme examples for comparison. i know most people have big block engines and some small block engines as well. small block guys are happy and also told the best way to go fast is to build a big block. is it because it is easier to build HP with the cubes?
example: lets say i have a 12V cummings diesel producing 344 HP and 795Ft/lbs. it will only turn 3500 rpm safely. could i put a very aggressive imp with a small nozzle to increase thrust and compensate rpm?
what about a 3.5L nissan motor that with turbo makes 450hp @6.5psi and 6200 rpm and only makes 287ft/lbs. will the small torque numbers kill my hole shot or can it be compensated with a smaller imp?
ive read all the charts i can find and saved most of them for my own resources. lets here some real motor guys chime in on this one
