Power Capacity of Stock 2011 GT500 Engine??

How much power can the stock block crank and rods and pistons handle in the 2011 GT500?

Thanks.

I've personally seen 630whp/600wtq with my buddy's '11 GT500, running a Whipple.

I'd say upwards to 800 is RWHP, maybe even 1000 with the right tune on race gas.

ARe the crank, rods and pistons forged (similar to the 2003-2004 cobra)?

They are sinter-forged.. same type of process used to make the rods in the regular Coyote, and the Boss Coyote. But, they are not traditional 4340 H-beams, found in the 03/04 Cobra. However, they are VERY strong due to improvements in the process/materials used.

Most seem to handle in the 750-800whp range with good tunes, after that it seems like they tend to start blowing for one reason or another.
