Take this video from MMR (modular motorsports racing) which shows one of their Coyote builds that is capable of supporting 2,000hp with a stock sleeved block and a single turbo. The engine uses aftermarket sleeves, GT350 heads, and one 88mm turbocharger to make the boost. The video is cool because you will see and hear the engine run to big RPM during the pull and then you will see the dyno chart that shows the thing making a mont boggling 1,944hp on the pump.
While it only makes sense that modern engines like these have supplanted the old iron dinosaurs of the past, we think that new and old can exist together happily. The Coyote will out work a Boss 429 all day long and twice on Sunday but it’ll also never be a Boss 429. See what we mean?
Bottom line is that we are living in the gold age of horsepower and the fact you can call MMR today and order an engine that outwardly looks kind of stock and actually makes 2,000hp is amazing. Even more so is the fact that the 2,000hp engine is not some ragged as guessed up mixture of parts but an engineered solution for anyone looking to make gobs of modern horsepower. This is awesome.
