" Going WOT in full v8 mode is going to magnitudes of order more stress on the hardware."
NOT when the crank has 4 cyls working their asses off to pull the sealed up 4 cylinders thru, imagine the stress on that crank, which gets transmitted to the cam thru a sloppy Honda mini-trail chain whose tensioner has lost it's cam chain adjuster bolt...
Also, going WOT in DZ302 TransAm SBCs, BOSS 302s, 440 Six Paks, 426 wedges & hemis, 427-435 horse BBCs, 454-450 horse BBCs NEVER BROKE a SINGLE CHAIN, NASCAR, NHRA, IHRA, SCCA, etc, all but for the oem cam sprockets that came with the nylon teeth covers, which were ALWAYS replaced with pure steel parts...Someone MAY be able to document a chain break on one of those engines, only after ventilating the pan or breaking a rod, crank, or cam ...go ahead & TRY to find ANY standard aftermarket timing sets for any of those historic musclecar engines born at Daytona & Talladega that broke & CAUSED a catastrophic failure. More rare than hen's teeth....till now....
