Re: Hot Rod magazine stock bottom end 4.8 1200hp
they still made 50+ passes over 1000hp and nothing went south, pretty darn good for a stock motor with god knows how many miles on it. i know what some of you are saying, but put a stock 350 4 bolt with a twin turbo set-up and try to get to 27psi and see what happens. it's still pretty amazing that a truck engine can withstand that much boost and not break with stock used lower end.
i doubt dodge or ford engines could survive that much punishment and not break.
