Default 1600hp at the wheels!!! From the redblock!!! What areyou think about???



This is Rickard Thompspons car in sweden. Read this thread!

http://forum.savarturbo.se/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=76537

I thikn that we in nordic countries have alittle advantage, because we have aftermarket blocks and cylinder heads and stroker cranksafts etc. easily available. It only need a little cash...

Do you think that this will ever be exceeded.

What if he some day put a 16-valve head???

Same with Jens' dyno test B230. 2017 they hit 900+ hp.

http://forum.savarturbo.se/viewtopic...3374&start=405

Very impressive in my book.

The CNC head they have been working on is aiming to break the 2000BHP. They are miles above most of us power wise but then we want something that can be driven on the road

He uses aftermarket block, b230 type casting with taller block height.
We have this kind of aftermarket parts in nordic countries, because b230/b21/b23 is like small block chevy in usa.

You have very big aftermarket support to sbc. We have big aftermarket support to redblocks here in nordic countries.

Yep. Very nice. And the after pic has a lot of changes from the first pic on the dyno.

It takes a long time to get all the details worked out.
