I don't want to turn this into a pissing contest, but I still don't understand why you would want to use the j-platform- I'm not saying you shouldn't, it just doesn't seem like a logical place to start. I'm really most curious about reliability of the car for those kinds of numbers and what it takes to make that kind of power. Forged rods do not equal horespower automaticaly. I don't doubt that you can make that power in a jcar- if you throw money at a project, you can do anything. Just look at Monster Garage.
