Hypethetical question?

Is it possible to somewhat reliably run around 900RWHP on fuel only out of a 5.9 CR motor and still tow with it? What kind of turbos and fuel system would one need. I know a well built bottom end would be needed.

Also any way to make a Manual transmission and clutch live up to that?

Thanks

Would running compound turbos help with the ability to still tow and keep the EGT's in check over a bigger single?

Yes on the engine and compounds, doubtful on the manual trans. Pretty sure firepunk's old white truck is over 1k and still tows.

It would be fine on the stock bottom end.

Yes, Lavon is well north of 1k and tows.

How heavy are you thinking about towing?
