Stupid me, din't realize it was concerning P.E. in that thread.
Somebody claimed a 515 HP Volvo S60 but I have my doubts.
Should do 1/4 mile in 11.43 seconds.

info,

John,

"Somebody claimed a 515 HP Volvo S60 but I have my doubts.

I don't suppose you have the 1/4 mile bhp calculator or could point me in the direction of it !!

I'd be intersted to do some theoretical calculations and see how accurate it is when the new RWYB season starts at santa pod...

Cheers
Steve

I don't know anything about 1/4 mile related to performance.
My "around" 300 HP S60 does 15 seconds according my AP22 box.
It's just the experience I have with my S60 and I am under the impression that the engine can do 400+ HP but every single engine externals are not up for the task.
Gearbox should crack like chocolate and the driveshafts would vaporize.

not to worry..

There are not too many engines out there that with the bottom end in standard form will beat the RB26 lump for strength.

Have fun
