The RS engine is probably using fortified engine parts... forged piston / conrods.. beefier crankshaft & bearings...etc.

I wouldn't compare a $18k car to a $40k one !!!

^ This, the engines aren't remotely comparable. Even the FoST is having difficulty on stock internals at 400 whp.

I never compared the two engines. I'm just stating that the RS is a good example of what a well built and tuned engine can output. My trade and my job is focused on a whole different category of engines so I can't say much in the technical specifications of automotive engines but I did read up on high compression and turbocharging and found our engines to be good candidates for some serious power. http://www.xcceleration.com/cr-boost%20101.htm

Although some people are into the high 500's.....just asking for a new engine trying
to push something that crazy.

The ones in the 500's have already let go and were rebuilt stronger. One just hit 545 whp and I think he's stroked to a 2.3l.

Edit: Nope, he's 2.0l with about $20k in mods including a fully-built block and GT3076R and it has run 11.589 @ 126.70 mph. Definitely making strides with the platform.

That is yet to be seen, but mathematically-speaking I would have to assume that would probably require new rods to be reliable. The FoST rods tend to let go between 440-470 whp, which is roughly double the stock OEM whp (230-ish). And those are forged rods.

With the Mk3 putting down roughly 150 whp stock, doubling the power output is probably not going to be 'reliable'. The community is not going to know without a few examples getting to that mark first, obviously.
