1000 Wheel Horsepower Dyno Battle

Ever watch Iron Chef?  We have a cooking battle of a different type going on . From what Tym Switzer said on NAGTROC, he is not interested in participating in a dyno battle. If he doesn’t want to play, it doesn’t bother SP Engineering much, as they are going for the current “record” of 1005/1006 awhp.  I heard that Monday/ Tuesday this week, the car is going back on the dyno with larger turbos and “whatever it takes” boost.
What's not satisfying is when everyone rushes to tear down the work because shop A's dyno sheet looks different than shop B's. If the power curve we're generating isn't what you're looking for, you have other options. However, I'd like to point out that the torque and power curves are placed exactly where I wanted them and I couldn't be happier. Even if I shift this car at 6800rpm, it only drops back to 5500. If you look at my torque curve on this particular car, you'll see that it's optimized to pull from 5K to 8K. That's a car that should pull strong to 200mph and have the torque up top to do it.

In this corner : the first to post a 1000+ awhp dyno chart – you have Switzer with their R1K…

Weighing in at 34.5 psi on C16.

And in this corner you have SP Engineering.

Weighing in at 30 psi on C16. 

SP Engineering's SPE1000  is already the quickest and fastest R35 GT-R down the quarter mile with a 9.6@150 mph pass with 860 wheel horsepower.
Both Switzer and SP Engineering claim to be using unsleeved blocks.  Once we start seeing some 4.0, and 4.2 liters, it will be an interesting comparison to the 3.8 liter engines.  There is no replacement, for displacement.
