Did I miss something?

YouTube - ‪TheBigBluePorsche's Channel‬‏
I just can/t beleive it, maybe I'm setting my sights too low HP wise in my build.

Yes you did miss something... I bet it took 2 miles for it to reach boost and do anything.. he he he. You would think with turbo's like that there would be a ton of lag. Anyone else? That is some pretty serious horsepower. I wonder what the motor has done to it.

Thx,
Bryan

It looked pretty alive on the dyno - makes you wonder what they did for it to stay together.

Why is it impossible? Eddie's car made over 1200rwhp. And it does not take 2 miles to spool up

That was my thoughts too.

I didn't see anyone saying it's impossible, they inplied it won't last long driven hard at that kind of horsepower.
..and it won't because it is 'impossible' for the street car vertical fan to flow enough air over all 6 cylinders and heads when making that kind of power if you're traveling farther than a 1/4 mile.
Porsche went to a flat fan because it moved more air evenly over all 6 heads and cylinders in their high horspower air cooled endurance racing motors.

For road racing I would agree. But I seriously doubt these guys building 1000+ hp 911 engines plan on hitting the road course. But I do know of a guy that's going to try

Besides, just because it couldn't be done 30 years ago doesn't mean it can't now. Fuel and ignition control plus more advanced data gathering has proven many barriers can be broken. Open your minds

very well put, 20 years ago would you have thought you could push a water cooled Honda to 800+HP? Engine management would be the key to this car.

Not everyone comes on forums and discloses the how to do's and further you can't most vehicles are developed to achieve power over years. The X Y + I = Z / failure is a bad measure. Dyno results can differ simply on values and a number of factors. But the video was pretty cool, I liked the color of the car mostly.
Last but not least you can have all the power, but if a means of transfer or pilot to use it is not in the equation.
It won't matter.
