Mark, you need to compare apples to apples....

We have air cooled motors... Jap and other cars are watercooled.... much easier to run high boost and keep the temps under control with water cooling than air....

The problem you mentioned with the studs pulling, breaking, or streaching is the stock stuff.... put some ARP, Racewares, SUpertechs, etc....and I bet that problem will go away.... Also remember, we are holding cyl and heads together with the studs... not just the head down ( as in Jap cars)

and three.... I think that if you build it right..this would also not be a problem ( compression leaks)

The only thing that I get pissed off about is how much the parts, etc cost!!! I have a TON of money into my build.. if I were to have spent that money on an american v-8...or a jap car, I would have easily double the HP..... But if that was the case... I still would not have a Porsche... its all in what you want....
