I owned a 300+ hp z1t, and my buddy had a 500hp rx1 (both machines built from new). I use to drive both. Mine was quicker in 500’, every time, But this was 13 years ago and all of the turbo technology was not as good as it is today. I did 133 miles an hour in 1000 feet on the rx1. Parts also used to explode off of it from time to time, and it ended up with a OSP engine girdle to hold it together. That’s a whole different ball game. And a whole different price bracket.
You can buy a z1 turbo and have a real 300 hp for essentially the same money that it would take you to get much over 200 hp out of a crossfire 1000.
At 300hp, the 1100 will run forever. Change oil once a year. Run it.

Came across this. Ok, you guys are making me feel ok about selling the mustang now lol. Seeing the 4 stroke be a potential contender. Multi-Map ECU Re-Mapping used to be $600 now $349.95? 120 hp for a little overtime. (Sounds budget friendly on a budget sled). Suzuki motor? Win win.

I can’t click that link….because mine was over 300, back in ‘09, and I know how it was. Stage tuned it against my 214hp 1000 and my buddy’s 1000 turned 1200, and once I set the programmer on the turbo to 260, it was game over for them. At 240, they were about even (weight difference….was still learning clutching on the turbo). I believe the DnD hijacker boondocker was either $1000, or 1500 back then, I bought a pipe and some small parts that day, can’t recall exactly, but I clearly remember the day that I went from 200-220-240-260…..and still had more to go….thinking “Best Money Spent Ever. Period.”
at 260-300hp, you take two hours, install headstuds (just swap them one at a time, no new gasket) and you never go any deeper into the motor.
