    Nice car, but I have no idea how an hx35 could dyno at 600-660awhp when it's max airflow is 57lb/min. On top of that, he says it will pick up another 100hp with cams. That means this hx35 flows 70-80lbs/min. I'm confused.

    I've had this conversation too many times. In short it works and I was as surprised as you are. Thanks for the compliment.

    Nice. I think you may be the world record holder with the hx35 then and that's without cams.

    Dynos can lie with manipulation/correction factor/bad calibration. 1/4 mile times dont. Take the numbers with a grain of salt as dynos are just tools to allow you to reference any chances you made to your car. This reminds me of 16g guys that dynoed at 500whp and think its real. ROFL

    Thank you for the comments. FWIW the car consistently traps between 129-132mph.

    130ish traps are right around 500-550whp, directly inline with what an hx35 maxed out does.
