...Using the same math, stock 280cc injectors would support approx 170 horsepower...[/qoute]

Larry-- those statements represent a rule of thumb when it comes to proper injector sizing. I never said that the stock injectors couldn't support more than 165-170hp. I simply said that they were sized (by the powertrain engineers) for those hp levels. A few months ago, I wrote a story in SCC describing how these rules of thumbs can "disproven" by nothing more than reducing BSFC and increasing max. desired duty cycle. Both variables are multipliers so small tweaks impact calculated hp levels dramatically. This was described quite comprehensively in a number of my SCC project stories (Miata, 2.5RS and RX-7).

Now quite misquoting me
