Great article in the latest Motor Trend about this TopFuel madness. They give a whole bunch of statistics, like:

7500: Approximate peak output, in horsepower, of a competitive 2003 Top Fuel engine. That'* almost 1000 horsepower per cylinder.

58,700: About what you'd pay, in dollars, for a new Top Fuel engine.

12,654: RPM the supercharger spins at maximum engine speed. With the engine at 8500 RPM, just turning the supercharger soaks up 900 horsepower (<------ )

45.5: Maximum boost, in psi, produced by the supercharger at wide-open throttle. That'* more that 3.0 bar, twice the boost achieved by a Mitsubishi Evo VIII.

12,000: Downforce, in pounds, generated by the rear wing at 325 mph. The downward thrust made by the exhaust gasses escaping the headers alone generates 800 pounds of downforce.

85: Distance, in inches, you'll need to be above the header pipes to avoid getting toasted by the nitro flames exiting those pipes.

This was a great magazine. Totally made my drive from Pittsburgh to Bawston.
