Gas mileage isn't impacted by peak power. Yes 1000+ is very usable, it is not an on/off switch.

You will get use to this power level quickly. All you basically did was negate the elevation and...

PD vs centri has a huge effect on getting to 800. One does it with ease, the other needs all the little tip/tricks/etc.

Hasn't been on a dyno in 5+ years. Last one was a dynapak, and just pegged it. Stock intake blew up at last half mile, so no comparisons.

RPM is ~7300

Pulled two plugs. ~.045". As I put it to my friends, they were gapped like a catholic choir boy.

Will have fresh plugs in at .025" tomorrow. I'm sure that was the misfire.

Why not go with an easy proven 700+ setup, add 100 shot, or just throw an ECS/A&A kit on and be done? Reinventing the wheel, or trying to be different is a sure way to get frustrated and spend 2-3x...

Yes AI 280s are good, but 700+rwhp NA good, I doubt it. You would want a big solid roller, some crazy heads, etc. Basically copy joshes setup with more cubes and RPM.

It is obvious from the pictures that they did not put the lash caps on, which destroyed the motor. They owe you a new motor.

Yes new motors have same issues, and possibly the rod issue as well.
