Perhaps your question can be answered with asking a question;...At what temperature does aluminum melt???

When you try to load a 1650HP engine out of the gate at 3500 rpms to make a speed run the EGT temps go through the roof and the boost level climbs fast, it is almost certain to detonate a piston.These are not 525 mercs we are running.We had 300 miles of test time on these motors to achieve what we did.They are kilo motors and are very fragile under the circumstances.Every time we did a speed run they were brought up in stages to there peak range of power.Unfortunately the last time they were run they were hurt.We had the Methanol injection coming in too late during the testing that happened.They are tuned for 1800HP right now and the boat will be ready to make a 202MPH speed run or better when the weather is right.
