800+ hp is very impressive out of this engine but I suppose 1000 hp is possible with some nitrous.
The real benefit of this drivetrain setup besides being rwd and only 3150 lbs is the transmission type. That is one of our biggest limitations.

You eluded to a 4 bar rear linkage....have you also done some mods to strengthen the frame

Yes, the chassis is as strong as possible.

Saw this a couple days ago and forgot to respond.

That thing is NUTS. I would automatically suspect an LS series V8. Not a 3800!

Yes, MPG is proportional to the HP.

800 HP = 8 gal per mi
