Who will break an N54 first? Vishnu or Vargas ?

Now that the N54 arms race has escalated into the 700WHP+ range, which vender do you think will break the stock internals first on their quest for the crown of Dyno Queen ?

Dyno queen? Have you seen what Captain Insano does to his car?

Hasn't vishnu already done that or is that a forum suspicion?

Honestly, I don't think either of them care if they are first or not. It's a good thing to see what the limits are.

It blows when it blows! So sit back, relax, grab a beer, and wait patiently, and STOP speculating! Eyes open, mouths shut, you guys can watch with me, I'll be right here.

I don't think any of the customers would appreciate being the "1st" to blow up. That is by no means something to be happy about regardless of what numbers they hit.

These poor guys spent tens of thousands on their cars already; lets leave it there and let them enjoy it so that when they are rdy to push it more, they will.

I'm sure CaptainInsano is well aware of the potential issues with pushing this much power, he's even stated in another thread "I'd prefer to blow my motor on race gas" so obviously, shiv isn't going behind his back..

Besides how can you know how he feels? How do you know he doesn't want to be the first person to show the community just how much the engine can do before it goes? To each their own, I'm glad that insano is the stand up guy he is, same goes for Tony's brother, two customers that are willing to bite the bullet for more power. I thank you guys!

I love that there is some competition finally in the upper echelon HP space now. This breeds advancement. Vishnu has always played safely while stretching the limits. Vargas has come in and started going after the limits aggressively right out of the gate.

Good times for all right now!

I blew my engine once.

Then it blew me back.

We have a good relationship.

The fact that most cars out there can't handle 350+whp and N54 guys are here trying to push 700+ should give some indication that they're aware of the potential dangers. There really shouldn't be any drama, it's just two vendors trying pushing the N54 to the limit in their own respected manners
