okay so I've been doing some reading on the atlantic engine....so its got 240 HP right...is that naturally aspirated? I think it is...I never see turbos or SC mentioned.

and can you buy them? how much would they be, where would you get them?
I saw on ToySport that they give you a list of all these parts that are availible through them from TRD....that are apparently in the atlantic engine.....http://www.toysport.com/New Products/Atlantic.htm

so am I right in thinking that If I buy all these parts install them on my engine that I'll get 240 hp.....it dosnt seem right so Im gonna say no.

let me know what you guys think.
to get the answer to your question you have two choices

1) go to www.hasselgren.com
or

2) buy A. Graham Bell's book titled "Performance Tuning for Four Stroke Engines" (or something ot that effect), read it cover to cover.

then you'll know if those parts can get you 240.

Technically, they can; but you'd better damn well know what you're doing and the intricacies of the 4AGE in order to squeeze every last drop of power from it.

Once you've read the book, you'll start to realise that people make a big deal out of the 240 horses. Keep in mind that racers don't do bench racing; in other words, while a higher peak horsepower value might sound nice and all, but for the guys behind the wheel, they only care about USEABLE power and width of the powerband.
