Please Inform me

I was originally under the impression that terminators stock block could withstand into the 1000s for rwhp and now I read that they can only handle roughly 550-700rwhp. Is this accurate?

I'm sure the block is fine, but im thinking the weak link may be the bottom end.

I'm sure a terminator owner will chime in though.

That's what I mean. The bottom end. The block I know is perfectly capable of it since its cast iron but I was told the pistons will give out around 500-700. Idk but to me if that's true then that's not very good for a fully forged bottom.

Nonsense. There are plenty stock motors over the 700 hp mark with no issues. It has much more to do with tuning for the power.

The part that is true is the longevity may be shortened with those power numbers. Just part of making power
