Imagine....

1000WHP Per liter

hahahahahahahahaha

your 3.8 would be 3800WHP

My Dmax 6.6 Would be

6600 WHP

But would likely have to Stop and rebuild it by the time you hit the end of the driveway !!!

I am floored (pun not intended) at the power output, but if I understand this quote correctly:

Quote:
They also use straight metal matrix composite (mmc) rods, which are lighter than Ti. The problem is cost and life (120 hours). These use no rod bearing.
…you need to replace the expensive connecting rods after 120 hours of driving time? Thanks but no thanks.

I wouldn't mind renting it for the weekend, though.
