How much horsepower can you get out of a 7m-gte running stock internals??
Yup...:fawk:outofstep said:You got any timetables with corresponding hp levels to support that claim?
sorry to bring up a old thread but im rebuilding my engine over winter and im thinkin of going with JE's. im not looking for most ammount of power possible but how much could i really have? i saw people say nething u can make, and on stock internals around 550hp. im just wondering if i just get forged pistons and get my rods shot peened if thats all i should worrie about. i dont wana have to rebuild my engine every year because i want more power. id rather just build it once the right way to handel alot of power. if when all said and done could handel around 600rwhp thats i think all id need for crusing around on the streets. does jsut getting forged pistons and stock rods shot peened sound like enough?conundrum07 said:Yup...:fawk:
No but really, most high HP guys eventually blow their motor. There are really too many variables to consider to say "You will blow at X amount of horse power" You might get away with it for a quite a while, but not forever at 500+ rwhp.
The 'weak' point seems to be the pistons. A built 7M with just forged pistons and a MHG/ARP bolts should hold whatever you want to throw its way assuming it was assembled correctly.
well i care more about motor internals becasue thats the most expensive part. if i blow the tranny a new ones 300-600 bucks drive shaft 200-400 rear idk exactaly but the motors 1-2 grand.ZoranC said:Who cares how much engine can take if driveline is not up to it?
