Hitthecones is a GM engineer. He posts sparingly, but accordingly. He among with other of his coworkers are building a Redline up for SCCA racing, and I think they know their stuff.bzboarder17 said:you have to keep in mind they built this engine for forced induction...of course the stock internals are going to be able to handle a shit load of hp. I just was wondering how much they rated it at. I wouldn't say over 500 hp, but...y'know we have our own opinions. 400 sounds more realistic to me.

Piston squirters, are there not just for engine lubrication, but for heat transfer. Pistons & rings take a hell of a beating in forced induction motors, and the squirters, keep it well lubed & take heat from the piston it self. There on 2JZGTE motors(supra), srt, 4G63(evo), and I guess in the eco tech SS. What do you think keeps them pistons alive, when the exhaust gas temps are hot enough to melt aluminuim???? Oil cooling bath, from the piston squiters. It's like the old science trick where you take a dollar bill, & use it to hold up a copper tube, then hold it in the candle's flame, whola dollar won't catch fire. Just don't push it! Wheres my blowtorch!!!selfinfliction said:forgive me for the nooBism but wtf is a "piston squirter" and are those things on my car? <ss/sc>
