Ive looked at your ad quite a few times, but I would be in big trouble if i spent that much with a baby on the way. Its a dream Jeep for sure

Im not looking for much 500 for now and certainly not dead set on a turbo. What is being done to keep these stock motor turbo jeeps alive at 700 hp? Just very good tuning? I see quite a few signatures that state stock block and 650-800 on a stock motor. Maybe there not stock blocks

TUNING TUNING TUNING... you have the same problems on D2. Inject the fuel too early and you're cracking pistons.

Get greedy with the timing, it will pop.
Get stingy with the fuel, it will pop.

I can't say for certain, but I don't think there are many stock 6.1s on this forum making 700hp in DD trim with many miles on them. Guys may crank them up and throw some race gas in them to make those numbers, but the pump gas guys with high DD numbers are forged and usually stroked. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

500 is easy man.

500whp is any forced induction setup you put on the jeep

700whp is gonna be possible as well however as said not too sure how long its gonna last on pump gas

not gonna lie, im going to see what 10psi on my TTC kit is going to yield on 91 octane pump gas. hoping it makes enough power to get me into the 10's, if it doesnt seem to be all that safe i will run less boost on pump gas and then run race fuel for some safety
