Last I spoke to Mike, he told me he never made a 1550 and wasn't sure where that number came from.
As I am sure you know, Bob Bulls motors have never made 1500hp. I would think his stuff is about as good as Sterling makes and last time I spoke with Randy they were just a couple ponies short, like 1490's.
I have no dog in this fight and really don't care, just trying to give out unbiased info that I have been told by reputable people.

thanks for the info guys. i was just curious. i heard the same with sterling being generous on the hp ratings. the whole 1550 vs 1500 thing is weird too. a guy i know has them and he refers to them as 1550's. i was just re stating what i have heard.

For informational purposes only. The twin whipple Sterling is 1500HP and the PSI blower Sterling is 1550HP.
