How many of you.......

For those of you running just over 600rwhp, did you change internals on motor, if you didn't how's your car holding up you have any issues? I'm looking to go fi on my Camaro and I'm just wondering at that power level how are things holding up.

Stock bottom end making over 740 rear wheel horsepower. I'll build it at some point but plenty people making over 600 with a good time and fuel.

i ran at 637 whp for a while and got greedy. Pulley'd down and added meth and beat severly on the car for 6 weeks at 715whp and broke the top 2 ringlands on #5. That was my plan.....too see how much abuse the stock bottom end could take. 6 galllons of meth in those 6 weeks.

I had my new motor already in the process of being built when i ran this experiment. I think it would have run a long time if i wasnt doing 1st-4th pulls every day to and from work.

I been running 720 for almost a year now with all stock internals. No problems. I believe its all in the tune and also how you the driver takes care of it. But sh** does happen. Near future plan is to add meth and then forged internals before adding more boost or something else

600+ here & no problems. Over 5000 hard miles on stock short block.

It's in the tune & components (fuel etc)

But remember anything can go wrong at anytime..

Was running over 620whp with a rear mount twin turbo setup for almost 3 years. Over 80 trips down the strip, best pass being a 10.99 with stock suspension, rear end, and tranny.

Just recently blew the ringland on cylinder #7. Signs of it running lean. I feel if i had a better tune at the time i would still be kicking.

So as others have said, good tune and plenty of fuel. and you can enjoy it for some time.

I would think 600-650rwhp is a sweet spot if done right. Any higher can be made but Depending on your right foot and power hungry mind you might break something.
My old Denali truck ran good and was holding 630s very well then upped the boost 715rwhp did 3 pulls and broke piston #7 (boost spike).

Yes, It's all about the conditions you run the car in and the tune!!! I've seen guys running the dog sh.. our of their cars on 91 octane in over 100 degree heat and blow the motor and say - what did I do wrong? Really???

Just be smart about it - I think the best and most overlooked factor is the fuel - if your going to run hard, run a higher octane fuel. But you need to have the right tune to go with it...

I've been 650ish rwhp for 4 plus years now. LS3 with Maggie and bolt ons. Little over 9psi. I've done some drive line upgrades, but the motor hasn't been touched. About 25K miles since the blower added. At this power level, if you have good fuel, plenty of it (capable fuel pump), and a good tune....the motor will love you long time
