Now on to more important things like RELIABILITY. How long will this engine(s) last at (I'll give away 100hp) 1700hp?
They made this power so easy, its hard to not run it. Normally, most of these big chief'd motors need about 18psi to make 1500-1600hp with the 3.3 quad, PSI or our 5.0/8.3. But the 4.0L quads have opened up a new window for power so this setup, with another SC, would be certainly less power. The motor makes 1600+hp with 11psi of boost which is where it will be setup to get some time on it. 1800-2000hp will be for shoot outs, at least thats the plan.

Dustin is the 5.0/8.3 the same blower? Could you explain the different volume from the same unit.

One is driven on the male rotor and the other is driven on the female rotor. The rotors do not spin at the same speed. So, if you spin the faster of the two, the rotors spin faster with the same pulley ratio. A faster spinning blower moves more air. For every revolution of the blower pulley, the supercharger moves either 5 or 8.3 liters of air.

Shouldn't you be spending your golden years enjoying life, instead of talking smack to someone just because they weren't floored by his results... Jeez!
I'd love to see 1800-2000 HP on pump fuel. Show me the guy that can make these live. We have had plenty come in and promise the world, and many going out with their tail between their legs because their chit didn't last the weekend.

The only thing that engine looks familiar to is the one bolted in the other side of the boat. Other than that they are all brand new.

Or, a 605ci with Profiler heads, a nice roller, and an air to water intercooled blow through carb from the Carb shop, fed by a ProCharger F3-R 139... 1800hp all day, or throw in C-16, swap a pulley, and you've got 2400hp for a bonzai run..
These engines are proven in the Hot Rod power tour as we speak, driven 1000 miles in a week, then straight to the track and run 200 in the 1/4...

I'm no engine expert but isn't there a big difference in running an engine for a 1/4 mile or driving around town versus running it a couple hours straight at 5 to 7000rpm?

For sure, SMRE is also offering 2200hp pump gas engines with 95mm turbos, and 2800hp on C-16...
