If you tuned a flat boost curve it is easily possible to get the numbers you mentioned.

Here's a real world example:

And here's one Jr. did when testing:
that's wondertasticful but its the exception, not the norm

its still sad that these things give out after 4000 miles at 400lb ft or 335whp or 400 whp with 400 lb ft wtf is the difference..the point is that shouldn't be enough power to require a rebuild of a factory boosted engine..the point has nothing to do with all possible subaru torque to hp ratios.

why don't you go do some nice drag launches with your built sure it wont explode or anything
