If Z1 would take that million dollar COVID loan they got that was forgiven and do something we all need with it that would be good. You know our tax money is paying for that crap. Rich getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

Outweigh the positive. If youíre so confident start entering 1/2 miles races and run them
At full
Power.
There's no reason why an open deck block with hg can't last at 700whp. Yeah, maybe using that power all the time, the longevity will be shortened but how many people are using that power all the time.

It makes no sense for me to do 1/2 mile races. At my power level, I'm not going to set any records. I just want a strong running street car without spending 25k on an engine

I used 718whp on my first motor ever time I got behind the wheel which was every day. 7k miles and it was done. Stay in the 6xxwhp range with your stock block and enjoy it. Following in my foot steps is not fun. I enjoyed
my first build the most. The car was a ton of fun. If I could go back there, I would.

I agree. But saying 800whp is reliable on any form of open deck isnít true. Most people who say that never run at that power level. More of a status thing, saying I made that power. 700whp is about the limit of what a oem block can handle. Soho proved that after a year of racing before it shot a rod out the block.
