      That's impressive power from a 4cyl, but it's not really uncommon for drag cars to make that kind of HP in turbo applications.

      It's not that high for V8s or cars running huge shots of juice, but for a 4cyl it's ridiculous.

      I doubt it. They've been running the same engine (630awhp) on their championship Time Attack car for the last three years...

      I thought this thread was about a 1130 AWHP car?

      It is, I was just saying that AMS is known for their great reliability. Obviously, 630awhp is much different than 1000+, but I was just making the point that this isn't some hack job. Here's a great video of their TA car in action. Running out of gear at VIR ftw

      That depends on who you ask...
      The AMS Evo was an absolute monster before, now it's just insane.

      Yes but what are the flow characteristics of the turbo and the related componentry?
      It's an impressive mertic but without context it's just a number.
      I'd imagine that engine was built top to bottom to handle the pressure and the turbo is in it's sweet spot coming off the 50+ peak.
