Wondering whats the most power anyones made with a stock shortblock VR38??
Obviously its not optimum from a reliability standpoint, but I think its good to know what the limits of the stock internals are even for short periods of time. Its also impressive just to see what people can squeeze out of a factory block.While this is a statistic, it may not be super meaningful given that any stock block record is not really sustainable. I get the point but in reality, you have to consider repeatability.
Neil,It ran a 9.62 (stock block record?) almost a year ago.
I totally agree. The caveat is that you have to be willing to allocate the funds necessary to fix the incremental things that you have broken when the internals give out. As long as you are willing to do this, it is an awesome experiment. Great thread on the limits of a stock block on e85 posted by TopSpeed last week.Obviously its not optimum from a reliability standpoint, but I think its good to know what the limits of the stock internals are even for short periods of time.

I feel like you'd be more likely to break it during tuning if anything.I think it's irrelevant cause you can slap an 1200 hp kit , cross your fingers for one pass, post a 9.0 and destroy it on the second.
If by "let loose" you mean we tore it down while it was running completely fine, then yes, it "let loose" haha...Like Sam said that is on borrowed time for sure. Was that the E900 car running open DP that let loose not to long after?

After all is said and done, we do not let anyone run more power than our P800 on the stock engine. +1 to racing fan.
lol successful hater control!WRX, you are correct, all of the rods were bent, but it did not run or sound any different than a stock GTR off the showroom floor, that was the odd part about it. Who knows how long it ran like that, all I know is JC did not baby his car at all, that thing went through hell and back.
My only comment to those 570 kit GTR's is the obvious lack of tuning control in place by that kit, as I posted in that thread.

hahahaComing from a kid who has forked out zero dollars for a GTR or any parts thereafter your opinion means a great deal to me, thanks for sharing young one.
