Yah I agree.. that turbo and that amount of displacement should be putting down much higher numbers than that.. probably just a low boost run or something because that can't be all that thing has.

You guys setting here talking about HP numbers like they matter. Those cars still go 6's...
And if it had more power, it would go 5s. You're missing the point that somethings running completely inefficiently.

Not sure about this but maybe they run fairly low boost out of a huge turbo so it actually never compresses the air enough to heat it significantly... maybe...

u might be right, its like a 6 liter stroked out V8 prolly only needs like 30psi, but still even if u compress the air a little bit it still makes heat, maybe they run so much boost that intercooling it would just cost them with a pressure drop and boost lag...hmmm someone answer this for real please it always bothers me. thanks

If they don't have an intercooler.. they're probably running methanol or some sort of alcohol, etc.. it'll only be 6.xx seconds of the car running without one. John Shepherd doesn't run an intercooler anymore in his Talon... straight methanol.
