" He's overthinking this whole design thing IMO.
The reason for the original design of the M10 cylinder part (they didn't use the whole block, just this part mainly) was so sturdy and overdesigned, was probably due to low production costs/ore prices and cast production limitations.
The BMW F1 section never complained about the sturdiness of the bottom end of the M10.
They needed the oldest blocks for the F1 engines.
There ad to be a lot of miles on the engines, and rumor goes they were peed on a lot by the engineers.
There used to be a big pile of the engines behind the development building and everyone was to do their no. 1 there.

" Ducks take game 1 after dominating for 2 periods. BULLSHIT powerplays put the stars back in the game. The ducks were up 4-0 and it's like the refs decided it was such a blowout they needed to help the Stars.

Whatever, Ducks dominated. "

You're forgetting one important thing here.
Qualifying at that time was done in 3 sessions spread over the friday and saturday.
There were no engine restrictions in terms of max amount of engines used, so the engines used for qualifying were only meant to last one qualifying session at most.
And some (most at the early turbo times) didn't even make that and blew up.

These engines had an over 3 Atm boost and unlimited fuel supply so yes, in the end they made just about 1500 hp.
For the races the race-engine was highly detuned to last the 300km race distance, and these engines had an output of around 800hp, although that can not be verified
But compared to the performance of the NA opponents they must have been around that power level. "
