Hi,


About Limits with stock internals:

For 1/4 Mile, what the maximum recommended power without problems ?


and


For Track days, what the maximum recommended power without problem ?


Thanks

As far as the common opinion here goes the internals are good for roundabout 800hp. Everything beyond this would require reinforced internals to be on the safe side. Though there have been people dyno 1000hp on a stock shortblock but this is jeopardizing the luck..
In your case I wouldn´t be worried about improving your engine. Just ensure to have a large oil cooler in for track purposes and watch the oil and EG temperatures..

At very least a 16 row would be helpful. Better off with a 19 row and utilize a thermostat in order to having the oil heated up in a reasonable time. W/O a thermostat it is taking very long until oil has reached it´s operation temp of at least 70-80°C.

About 16 row, it's possible to install at right side of bumper, behind the signal lights ?

Why not on the left side where the oil filter is located at? There you can also install it behind the turn signal. IMO the best place for it.
Yes, 16row should work.:)

Setrab is a rather know brand here in Europe. As far as I know a good quality product.
