Merc already has the 850SC, why would they want a motor that makes just 800? I think they bought the company to suppress competition.
From the Allstar website:

Quote:
The engine turned over twice and sprang to life. Everyone broke out into a grin as the dyno brought the engine up to 3000 rpm and held it steady. People shook their heads and smiled and laughed as the engine sat on the dyno and sang its song. In only 19 months Steve Mugerauer's idea for an engine had become a reality. An effortless 800 horsepower that can run all day and all year without hurting itself.
I read this to say that it made 800 hp at 3000 rpm but they never say the redline is 3K - what if you spin it to 4000 or 5000 rpm? And I'd like to see the torque numbers, they have got to be huge....

OK, I decided not to be lazy today... using this formula:

Torque = (HP * 5252) / RPM, I make it 1400 lbs-ft of torque if the motor is making 800 hp at 3000 rpm. That's a hell of a lot of twist!! Now imagine plopping a blower on it!
