Oh, yeah, with 58mm HX40, it will make maximum ~600 whp..

We have used toluene on BMW E30 that had M30B35 fully built engine in it and Holset HX40 Super. At 1.7 bars it made 730 hp with 19 degrees of advance. It was scary to drive. Toluene did not cause any issues but the mixtures need some adjustment.

Remember, 1980's turbo-era F1 engines ran on pure toluene so it has been used with some success
