+1 plus you wont break em too easy which is always a plus when dealing with your luck.

Brad, you raise a good question. Turbines aside, how do we get beyond 1500 HP with current state of the art engines?

Better fuel? No, already running race gas.
Better heads? No, already got the best.
More RPM? No, valvetrain is already stressed.
More boost? No, intercooler is already too small.

And yet several engine builders have reached 1700 - 1800 HP using centrifugal blowers whether belt or turbo. How did they do this?

more boost with much bigger intercoolers
lower parasitic losses with more efficient blowers

These engine builders and the customers behind these projects are pioneers. Setbacks are to be expected when testing any new application; this is the only path to success. But important milestones are being reached. Sterling uses our single centrifugal race system on their Class 1 engines and they can qualify first and finish first.

I understand the customer who sticks with the status quo; who wants to go boating without hassles. A number of engine builders can sell you a reliable 1200 HP pump gas package. But some guys like to stretch the envelope and they deserve respect because the R&D they pay for trickles down. That's why you can buy a 1200 HP pump gas package today.

Just wanted to push back a bit for the centrifugal guys. We're not dead yet.

Thanks,

Tom
Great job Tom ,hope to see your new set-up in a few weeks

Tom's dyno can...I have seen him do it with my own engines. It is probably worth mentioning that Tom Earhart built his own dyno and years ago Tom was hired by Mercruiser (or Mercury Racing) to do some dyno testing of their engine projects. He's an extremely inteligent and credible guy. He's over 60 years old and his love for speed/horsepower never seems to dull.
