VP44 Equipped Truck breaks the 800 HP mark
This weekend at Fall Brawl 2005 the 800 RWHP mark was broken by a VP44 equipped truck, in fact the truck made 832 RWHP! I am sure with a little playing with it 850 will happen with no problem and 900 is a possibility. I never thought that approaching the 900 mark would be possible without going to a p-pump or highly modified VP, yet this was done using a stock OEM VP44. The crazy thing is max HP is being made @ 3500 rpm and torque is still over 1200 @ 3600 rpm! The max HP is late in the rpm curve due to the way I am bringing in the nitrous, very slow with a progressive controller and only a single stage shot of the squeeze. A couple of years ago I could only manage around the 750 HP mark even using a ton more of the spray! The difference is in the parts, tuning, and setup.
Here is a lowdown on the truck:
Single stage nitrous system
Helix 3 Camshaft
Stock injection pump
TAD Steroid B-1 single turbo
Prototype Mach 8 injectors
A big thanks goes out to Formula 1 for making the key components to break 800 and to DTT for building a transmission that can take the abuse of 800+ HP.
