How many are road legal?????
I know of a cateram / lowcost type open wheeler here in San Diego running 200whp with a stock zx3 Bottom end and (I believe head) with super high compression. Mercur (sierra) box and diff. Rear wheel drive of course.
Chilli?? (Red focus I guess) from focal jet sold a custom intake a while ago, he said he was running 224hp I assume at the wheels.
I believe most Pro race teams run long term race engines at approx 240hp from 2 liters. Seems to be a common number for reliabilty. The new duratec (mazda/ford) 2.3 puts out 300hp as a cosworth engine in the atlantic series but is rebuilt after 1500 miles.
My numbers were 164.3 and 145.6 which I guess is at the higher end. I have seen 167. as a winning result of a dyno day competition somewhere on this forum. My dyno was done at the dyno shop here is San Diego where I believe they may have had a focus / mustang dyno day as well. I tuned my cam gear for +2 degrees so that I would get the most torque and midrange horsepower, had I cranked the cam gear around I would have been able to get higher numbers but they would be well up near 7000rpm. I actually want my car to last a while.
Some guy down at the Steeda Meet this summer in Pompano Beach made 180 solid on THEIR (steeda's) dyno. Only bolt-ons with a custom tune....no cam or headwork. I understand that's about the best u can do with just bolt ons and tune. It was the highest number the Steeda reps had seen on n/a.
