233 wheel torque at 9psi seems pretty unrealistic to me too. So does holding a completely flat torque curve to 7000, even the square top manifold tapers a little by then. Not mention that it will...

Come on, 310 whp @ 12 psi is total bullshit, at 18-20psi sure but no way at 12. Throwing a rod has nothing to do with how much boost he was running, there are lot's of reasons rods go, and others...

However:
