    I think that likely means it is 1000 hp capable.

    The customer purchased a level 3 kit which only puts out 700 crank. He requested an built engine for build he may do in the future.

    So is it 700hp or 1000hp ? What did the FB page say 1000hp? And only 700 crank for "level 3 kit"? That doesn't seem to be much more than stock, whats included in the level 3 kit ?

    I guess im confused by your question.. When we put in 1200 hp pistons into the engine is it supposed to make 1200 hp? We built the engine to hold up to 1000 crank hp. It is up to the customer to to make that hp. Our kits only go up to 700 hp with a rotrex so he will need a ysi in the future to get to these numbers..

    Im not sure why everyone is going crazy over a facebook post that has a picture of a engine "only" being shipped off to a different country but, to answer your question the engine makes around 440 crank as it stands int he picture.

    They were saying the parts are capable over 1000hp no different than when Weistec says they have 1000+ capable axles, transmissions, etc.

    I understand, now...
    It is very different than someone saying 1000+ CAPABLE axles and transmission because we all know axles and transmissions do not MAKE power, they just handle it. When I see a pic of a motor and it says "1000hp" next to it without the word "capable", I assume the motor is making 1000hp.

    Yeah that was a mistake on our part. Our web guy isn't the most knowledgeable when it comes to hp and clarifications. Sorry for the confusion.

    I can understand that but I immediately recognized they were talking about the built motor strength capability but I can see how some did not. Better clarification with an additional word for context would have helped.

    It's a simple misunderstanding no big deal.
