I think the limit of the 7.3 was found

This is what apparently happens at 103 PSI of boost. NOT my engine!

Wow... that's some impressive carnage. Anyone get hurt when it blew?

Looks like the firewall is still in one piece so I'm guessing the driver is ok. Assuming he wasn't going 100 MPH when it blew up.

Alright that's just about the most impressive carnage I've ever seen. Hate to see the price tag to replace that.
