I didn't read the article, but if an average V8 Top Fuel dragster makes anywhere from 6,000-8,000 HP, then what's so special about an engine with half the cylinders making about half the hp?

Because it has ~3900 more horsepower than your car.

Since when DON'T they make that much? A typical Top Fuel dragster is good for at least 6,000 HP.

Nobody really knows for sure as to exactly how much hp they make. I don't think there is such thing as a dyno that can handle that much power anyway, so everything is estimated, and is probably conservative. And even if they did know exactly how much power they put out, they wouldn't post it on a website, because that would let all the competitors know how much power they are puting out, and that would be bad, mmkay?

I am to lazy to read the whole article, but is this the one that has a nitrous-driven turbo? I remember seeing on TV a few years ago an Integra funny car that was supposed to have this really revolutionary system of driving the turbo with nitrous, or somethin........

anyways, its uber-cool


oh, and even though it IS a honda, it isn't rice.

Actually, I dunno what your guys' problem with FRAM is, but it is actually a pretty good filter. Think all those Top Fuel guys would use it if it was crap? And there are a LOT more factors that destroy a motor than a crappy oil filter.

Get this, most top fuel cars average 6,500 - 7,500 horsepower on any give run. They consider 1,000 hp as an error margin due to the fact since they rebuild every run, there is always something different. Can you believe that,? a 1,000hp margin for error................***

it takes almost 1000 hp to drive the blower, which I always thought was a cool fact.

sorry, I know that has nothing to do with your post, just wanted to say that

A lot of the guys here would rather go to the dealership and pay 14 - 25 bucks for a factory filter so the emblem matches the one on their trunk. Just a lotta guys in here that argue for the sake of arguing.....pay no attention to them.


Um.....yeah....cool car I guess. I'm not really in to funny cars. But.....yippie

Fram *WAS* good. Now they are all very cheaply made. Cut one apart sometime.

I take it you have never had a poorly made filter that "fits" fall and crack you in the skull after mearly loosening it, Yes alot of them are held on by only a few threads. Having SOA parts on the car,and even better yet,having maintenance done at the dealer,Give SOA one less excuse to deny warranty coverage.
