So the 8.8 is darn near indestructible is what I got out of that. Would love to see a 1/4 pass.

Thank you all for the kind words. Crazy how a $300 blown up Volvo wagon that was bought and built as a joke has gotten so out of hand now. I have had tons of fun, fell in love with Volvos and met a lot of really cool people along the way. Now where do we go from here? lol

Old school, try to make it from a 1.6L B16 pushrod motor.

EDIT: Although really, sticking a B230 back in (the cargo area) could help with dyno traction issues.

Nah, just feed the turbo into a supercharger. LSA chargers are all over the place.

Well, not quite, but they're not exactly rare.

so does it cost real money to make that much power, or is even 900+ becoming "cheap" (a relative term of course)

"Real money' is a rather flexible term, but just based on Denmah's description in the video, there aren't a lot of high dollar parts in the mix. I'm assuming the 6.0 'smoky ring' engine doesn't have many shiny $$$ parts in it, probably a stock, possibly unopened bottom end, certainly a cam swap and valve springs at a minimum.

And the turbo isn't super exotic either, it's just big (compared to what you'd put anywhere near a Volvo motor.

Turbos can replace displacement, but they can't replace displacement with a turbo.

I saw this car (and creepily introduced myself to Rich) while it was still 5.3 powered, and I was shocked then.
900whp is incredible.
Congrats to everyone involved.

Any chance you have a timeslip with the 901 combo?

Again, super impressive Rich.

I'm not even going to speculate on cost as it really depends on ones pocketbook / resourcefulness as to what affordable is.

Some real money that's probably more than most of TB wants to spend but still low buck compared to other cars out there.

He's got a set of Bosch 210 injectors. Those run around $400-500 for a set of 8. Plus the pump(s), new bigger lines, flex fuel setup. He's got a decent bit of money in the fuel system. The rest of the stuff is priced pretty reasonably. $800 billet 80mm. I'm sure he's got an aftermarket converter too.

And a real convertor to handle that power for a 4L80E is going to run you 800-1000, as I'm finding out.

So normal stuff. I probably have more into a 350whp redblock lol

600whp builds seem normal so wasn’t sure if 900whp is more of the same or a whole different world (internals beadwork etc)

The engine is an unopened 6.0 that I bought with the transmission for $700. Add Cam, valve springs and a chinese 80mm turbo and the power is there. Where, IMO, it gets a little pricey is building the support to hold the power (torque converter/ trans etc). I would guess total for the entire car with the fuel system, wiring, ecu etc. I have somewhere around 8k in it. Now labor is a whole other subject!
