BlankThere is a factory stock, high performance  WRX that makes 300 also,

  Yeow.  That's a 153 cubic inch engine, rounded up for good measure.

  A lot of people feel that keeping below 1 horsepower per cubic inch is
about what people should be pushing engines for longevity.

  Unless he's turbocharging, running at rediculously high RPMs and
compresion ratios, I find it surprising to get that much horsepower.  I
would really like to see the engineering he's put into that engine.  Must be
an oversized machined billet crank, reinforced main bearings and reinforced
case.  Pistons, rods ...

  Some pictures of a Ford 302 block making more power than it could handle:

  If I recall correctly he was making 600 to 700 horsepower on a stock
block.

    Gentlemen,
        I hope I don't offend with this.  But I just spoke with Lance
Wheeler of NSI the other day and he told me he's getting ready to produce a
2.5L (4 cyl) turbocharged Subaru FWF pkg that his dyno says puts out 300 hp.
I'll bet one thing.  It'll be a lot quieter than those rotarys.  But, many
more moving parts though.  I understand the 6 cyl turbo'd Subaru will put
out 300 hp and will likely cost a lot less than a 540 Lycosaur and probably
won't beat your props up quite so much.  Oh yes, Mr. Wheeler said he has
developed a new heavy duty PSRU for the 300 hp 4 cyl engine.  No, I don't
work for NSI.  I just thought some of you Velocityites might find this
interesting.
    nolan.
