    Kenne Bell Competition Boost-A-Pump Max RWHP Limit

    Hi all. I read on Kenne Bell's website that Jon Lund had tuned Mark Meiring's GT500 to have 945 RWHP with 15% remaining fuel. Has anyone reached 1000 RWHP with the competition boost-a-pump, or is about 950 RWHP about the limit on a stock fuel system and 80 pound injectors? Thanks for any input!
