    A buddy of mine owns a McClaren 720S. When he got the car I'd never heard of it but OMG...it has proven itself to be quite the 3200lbs supercar! And it's reputation from the dig or a roll is all over UTube...Kills Demons/ZR1's and more. High 9's low 10's . Rated at 710HP but dynos have proven way more. Cost? As much as my house lol!
    A couple of weeks ago he's cruising 60mph and what rolls up on him? A Boss 302.
    There was a friend behind them on an wide open 6am, flat 3 lane highway.
    He's thinking c'mon man....EXCEPT....when they stabbed the gas the Boss pulled on the 720S.
    80-100-110-120mph the Boss 302 is STILL out by a car. Well....both these guys are absolutely crazy because they stayed in the throttle. The McClaren 720S began pulling slightly ahead at...wait for it......150-160+mph before they lifted. Crazee.
    But this begs the question. The Boss 302 engine is Kick Ass..we know that. Put Twin Turbos on them and all that's needed is an OPG & Timing Change upgrade. I knew they could produce 800FWHP but this TT Boss 302 had BIG POWER.
    At first I was thinking it must have been a built engine ?
    Can I ask how much HP are you guys making on the stock block?
    This same McClaren walked away from my friend's 800HP GT500 with 373's from 60-125mph.
    * Sorry for the rant but I am intrigued !

    The roadrunner is good to 900whp all day long and 2x on Sunday. Maybe more.

    The S550 Mustang motor uses the roadrunner's rods (beefy!) and "as cast" ported heads, but hyper pistons. S550 guys are making big power and have been for a long time.

    My 2018 makes 913 whp 100% stock long block including OPG's and timing gear.

    She's trapped 147 with a 2.2 sixty foot so it's a 150+ car with a good launch.

    to add to what I said yesterday and what gimme11's said..

    Dakota Deck at lund is making 900 wheel with twins on his 12
    Chase Cooper has a Roush blower and 75 shot making 900 wheel as well on his 13.

    James miller just went 207 at the texas mile with a stock 12 laguna seca with a set of twins and E85. and a swap to 3.15s of course.

    Steven landry also went 202 with a VMP Gen 2 and 15psi.

    these cars are bad AF!

    The Roadrunner is a bad bitch.

    I'll have a boss 302 some day for sure.
