Essentially it is a Formula 1 engine in a street car body


Understandably, numerous modifications were required to reach the 900-hp figure. Some of the key mods include a Turbonetics turbocharger, Five O Motorsport fuel injectors, reinforced internals from Arias Pistons, an Infinity 6 ECU and Bisimoto’s own intake and exhaust systems.

Give me a customer that wants to pay for more HP and I can get you more HP. Like a 2.0L Ecotec that puts out 1000 HP. You can get the build book from any GM dealer that list the parts you need to build them up to 1500 HP. It also tells you where to get these parts. All it takes is money. I estimate the 1000 HP Ecotec to cost around 25000.00 dollars. Money makes Horse Power.

Thanks, Chuck

Fords ecoboost engines are pretty dam great my wifes f150 has the new 2.7 v6 ecoboost twinn turbo 375ft pounds of torque its very strong and going to Alabama and back we averaged 24 miles to the gallon. I have owned several ecoboost engines they are rock solid. But I dont care what engine you use 1000hp wont last on a built engine without a lot of money a whole lot of money.

We are waiting on the Dual Sync Drive to be built so we can build the engine stand.

Is that 900 to 1500 hp on a stock block?

I was talking to a non airboater car guy that thought a Toyota supra 2JZGTE inline 6 with twin turbo would make a powerful airboat engine. Easily build able to around 700 hp with little modifications. Any clue how you would adapt a gearbox? Would this make a good airboat engine in your guys opinion?
