          I know the limit of the Cummins V-engines is about 3500HP in a pull truck. you cant get any more fuel to the injectors because there is not enough meat in the head to drill the fuel passages any more.

              I have the time but no money. When I was in my late teens and up to when I got married I bet 60% of my income, and it wasn't much went into my rides. I bought a new 72' TR6 in High School, that car flew with a inline 6. Worked weekends at the manufacturing Plants around Hamilton and Niagara Ontario, sometimes 40 hrs from Friday to Sunday afternoon driving Euclid's.

                This was me in 1975. My dad's buddy was building these things. I drove it the next day after he got the fenders and other stuff installed.

                Chevy big block.
                Auto transmission.
                450HP.

                I got it to 160MPH and it was still shoving me back into the seat at 4000 RPM.
                I ran out of track and had to shut it down. I sure was young and stupid.
