    The gear drive should be worth at least 50 hp. Still have parasitic loss from turning the compressor either way but eliminating the belt should help quite a bit. We figure the blower in general at 65k rpm consumes about 150 hp. The heads on this motor are the TFS R 225 CnC'd version with quite a bit of work done to them at this point. All of the intake runners are moved over and have been welded to allow for 3/8 .120 wall pushrods not to mention Inconel exhaust valves. These heads flow really well for what they are. I'm really hoping to make 1400 rwhp + with this combo.

    I actually met some of those guys when we were out at PRI a few months ago and they were really a good bunch of down to earth guys. I sure would love to get a chance to take a shot at some of them though!!

    I think you'd have a fair shot. "3000 hp" is a lot to get hooked on asphalt, much less concrete.

    I don't believe half of what they say on that show. But, it's good entertainment so I don't care. I think your car would "wax their ass" all day though
