I'd guess N/A. The current 300R is rumored to be easily putting out 325-330HP with a couple minor mods to the intake and valvetrain and a higher RPM limit.

I think we'll see it without forced induction, at least I sure hope we do.

The left hand retrieve on the Tekotas just causes everything to swap sides, line counter included. No issues there.

The Compre rods are the perfect fit for the 500s, at least in my opinion.

I can't see ever needing to "trim up" the 72" shaft.
