bigger injector and turbo, but a lot of supporting mods need to be done to keep up with it.

at the flywheel i would gues, the 400 and some cc hybrid injectors, big fuel system, big oil system, maybe compund turbos or a really big single? then lots of base engine work, such as o-ringed block, main girdles and rocker girdles, head studs

About 500 hp. Head studs are needed when boost is over 40psi.

But your right on the line of playing with fire.

yes at the wheels... but 500hp at the wheels is ~1000 ft lbs of torque so that answers your question!!!

without studs 400hp is playing with fire. the real mark is 40 psi boost but 500hp requires a full engine build, well and do more than dyno runs with it!

I don't know. But if you don't have the cash to build a second engine you had better built the first on right or cut back on your HP.
