    I'm not used to seeing N54s live at those RPMs for long periods of time. Sweet!

    Can we get some specs on the build or is that secret sauce?

    Had that Mustang not held him up, the lap would have been even faster! Extraordinary build by Bobby Downes and a great driver.

    Is the motor built or head? If so what are the specs?

    99% sure from talking with Bobby, and others that the car is stock motor and VAC Stage 3 head, but could easily be wrong. @radar1 can you confirm that for me?

    Ahhh that would make sense then as they used the dyno showing the stage 3 head vs. stock to show off their turbo kit on the other forarm.

    I still want to know why no one will rev the block out with a built head and ST.

    Well I know why on the autos, but, on this particular car I just don't think they needed to. Someone still needs to do it first I suppose.

    The head does not flow enough to enable very high revs.

    It is not that people would not need more power, but that N54 is not a high revving engine and it cannot be transformed into one either.

    The dyno shows otherwise no? All I see is power increasing as the revs increase.

    I understand the N54 may never be a very high reving engine but there should be room to increase it past 7200rpm. Even increasing it to 8 or 8.5k, from looking at the dyno, would be a substantial increase in power.

    To go on, why install VAC springs that can hit 10k rpm(claimed by vac) when there is zero valve float with the stock springs at this power level and rpm range?

    You have to factor in the bottom end as well. Piston speed and sidewall loading all factor into how much stress is applied to the bottom end. You can't just throw a built head on a stock bottom end and rev it to the moon (unless its a Honda).

    Jake has probably spent more time tuning that car than 90% of other the N54 protuners combined have spent tuning N54s and he has the rev limiter where it is for a reason.

    he said built head - build head definitely flows more than enough, has been proven.

    of course it can - there's nothing magical about the N54 that precludes it from being modified to rev higher than 7000rpm and still make power.

    fully built motor especially, when EVERYTHING is lightened+strengthened, there's nothing keeping it at 7000-7200 unless there's a software limitation present.
