4-4.5 PSi intercooled gives an easy 520 crank HP. That's a good +100hp over stock.

The biggest enemy of the engine is... HEAT.
Removing the primary CAT's is one of the most vital elements in reducing the stress on the engine.
Downward force on the pistons/rods/crank will be similar in this setup compared to a 4.6 stroker running the same power. 4.6 Dinan is quoted around 520 crank HP yes?
Part of the issue is no one offers an intercooled/low boost setup. I'm 100% sure you could get one if you asked.
