You have no idea how high he can rev, sure it probably doesnt make 500hp till right at 5k, but if he takes it to 10k that turbo will hold the torque to produce the hp until the 10k. That is 5000 rpms of powerband that is above 500hp. Lets see your pos do that.i bet your powerband sucks
but sounds nice when it finally hits boost
There are streetable 1000hp civics IN MY TOWN. Ever heard the term "volumetric efficiency"? Yeah, pushrod domestic v8s are short on it.any way you would show us your dyno chart to see where and for how long you are making power, nothing against you and the pursuit for big numbers but i look at it as where you are making power and for how long.
prime example is a 1000hp big block and a 1000hp civic
both make the numbers but one you might drive on the street and the other goes from the trailer to the track
