    yep, it's pretty easy actually. high comp pistons, some good cams and a lot of dyno tuning and you're there.

    1000 hp with high comp pistons and cams, i think your shopping list is maybe a bit short. you forgot a good header (gotta keep that exhaust gas moving).

    what the hell is going on in here?


    anyway, yes, you can hit 1000 hp on a 4 cylinder engine. Jotech out here in dallas is doing it on a dart block. its a difficult proposition that will make the car completely non-streetable, and it will take the exact right parts and a hell of a lot of time, tuning, and money.

    he lied. he just wanted to sound cool. he text me friday and said 12 was pushing it, but the new pistons and block guard make it work.

    ^^^:D no shit..


    WTf is going on here..
    High compression pistons?
    good tune?
    1000+hp?

    NO fucking way. Youre going to need a lot of $ to be able to hit that.
    The turbo alone is going to run you close to 2k.
    Im almost at $13k and i still dont think i'll make it to 600whp with my setup.

    T66, 40+psi, and a little person with a bucket of race gas sitting on the engine pouring it in. Should do it.

    just put an rb26 in there and upgrade turbo.

    If you want 1000hp buy a muscle car.
