lots of rpm !!
1. breathing (cams, valves, the whole intake path actually)
2. exhaust (the easy part!)
3. BALANCE ! (crankshaft, journals, conrods, pistons, etc.)
The science is all there!
If you think 370Hp from 2.5L is so amazing what about the 800+ from 3L (F1) ?
@ 18.000 rpm of course!
what about the 1000HP from this (s-14 2.0L?)motor turbocharged/methanol in the BMW Benneton F1 car's
i believe the "Brabham" F1 car was only a 1.5 litre and they don't use methanol...that's CART's fuel of choice. the dyno at BMW's engine center topped out at around 1200 hp... and the engine put out more...estimated around 1400 hp.
