Would like to hear what the motor made for power...
The way the car is built i have to think he is looking for at least 1000hp if not more?

I believe it's capable of low 4's. It is a legal D class car. Weighs about 3300#.

No wonder it won Best Engineered... That thing is a Beautiful work of art down to the last detail. Now I wish I would have went and checked it out when I had the chance.

That was the rumor. Ecotec 4 cylinder with a turbo on alcohol. It was in D class which is one of the lower classes and running 4.4's.
