They were not doing torque for the event.

This is a kind of misleading statement. They may not have been displaying the torque, but it's not possible to not "do" or measure torque.

Horsepower is technically not "measurable". It is a mathematical representation of torque, with respect to time.

All dynos measure torque, and then use a calculation to determine horsepower.

Congrats on the new numbers... can't wait to hear how it "feels" on the butt dyno, and/or in front of a sled.

Thank you everyone for the cheers. I am still tweaking and tuning. I will hit 500hp with my current setup before I drop in the built block and open up the injectors.

Luke, You are one of the reasons I have taken the direction of my build. Thank you for your time through the process. Your 600+hp is my ultimate goal, until I hit it. Then, well, who knows.........700hp? WILL IT EVER END?????????
