Re: Claims vs. Claims - getting them straight

I think that 1.5 CFM to HP rule of thumb has some factor
for VE already built in. If not, then the max. hp for a
1781 cc 4cyl VW would be around 115 hp @ 5500 rpm.
Tectonics has built too many of these with more power.  

Also, I don't think VE is a constant for a given motor.
i.e. I expect it goes down as boost pressure goes up
because of the increasing back pressure.
