I agree with the mains, got to take in consideration the crank play at that power level, axles will give in too.

stock block will take over 1000whp. ill never need that much juice. my reasoning is this. if the cgi block is only 25% stronger and it took 1700whp and didnt break...

also more than anything i think it wont happen. we wont get enough people together to buy the cranks. but if we do i will start giving it some serious consideration.

It all depends on what the car goals are, have a record breaking car or just have fun. I can't reason myself into one when mine will hold 620, Will be concerned about hooking that power to the ground than making more.

You guys are over looking how much time and money it takes to reach a 1000hp goal, lots of trial and error. you will never make that goal and just talking about it is a waist of time. you will see that making 600 is harder then it seams. its not just throw parts at it and crank the boost lol.

yeah its just like all the awd threads until some one actually has the guts to go for it. there are like 100 pages on that thread of just pure bs lol. 600whp wouldnt be to hard though, you have already spent your time and money testing it for every one jim they just have to copy and paste lol. still will be surprised if any one else does it though, its just way to much money to put into a focus

lol true but there are still other problem that will come about. makin power aint easy. should be fun to see what you guys come up with tho. Chris SVT is back and he wants to make more power with it so ill post some detail on it once we achieve the power goal.
