Ok. I'm not looking for anything exact but I get a lot of questions regarding my HorsePower,that and how fast is it.
I say I have around 100hp but I to be honest I have no Idea.
My mods include log style exhaust manifold
3 tech camshaft
Ko3 turbo
3 1/2" short exhaust (30")
Head is extensively ported and polished
And all mating surfaces on the exhaust/ turbo components are gasket matched.
I'm currently running around 5psi boost
I intend to eventually run 12psi boost.

Just to reiterate I'm not looking for exact I know that is impossible , just a ball park figure is all I'm after.
Thanks Edd

I'm going to say 110hp...
but it's all relative
your literally driving a jacked up Go Kart in that aspect you need to think about how much torq your producing
not how much hp you putin out.....
.
when I was a Kid the bro ham had a twin mcculloch Gokart it was quick not fast max Hp about 8hp... Torq .?.. off the chart

Hp is how big you get from point A to B
Torq is how quickly you get from Point A to B
.
when you read articles
in Mag's (Hotrod/Carcraft) they quote Hp torward the top of the RPM range
Torq normally comes first then HP builds
.
bottom line is
weather you want to go quick or fast
.
Me.? I like it quick.! If I want to go fast I would step up into a larger displacement
.
So say for the sake of the argument I'm full of shit..
.
The internet is a wonderful tool.!

I judge an engine's power output by 2 standards to gauge whether it's a powerful engine for its size, the old method, horsepower per cubic inch, and the newer standard, horsepower per liter, if the engine's power output is more than, the same as, or even a little less than its displacement in cubic inches, it's a powerful engine for its size, if the horsepower is more, equal to, or even a little less than 100 horsepower per liter, it's a very powerful engine for its size.

I agree 100% on torque especially in an off road vehicle. Torque is what shoots me over the top of a hill from a dead stop not Hp.
I was just curious because HP is what everyone asks me about.
Personally I'm not concerned with Hp. It runs like a raped ape and pulls like a freight train which is enough for me.
Thank you for the reply
Edd
