I have the FASS recomended GPH - HP rates in my thread in the 12V performance section if that's what Wyatt is after. I can post them here if you want them for the new page.

Wrong!

I noticed you had it posted correctly later but if you want find the area of a circle using the above method it is radius^2 not diameter^2

3.1416 x 1/2bore x 1/2bore x stroke

I could provide you with the formulas:

- to calculate CFM with Density rate w. aftercooling or w/o aftercooling, with the pressure rate and the CFM of the turbo

-required air filter size

-density ratio

- Power and Mass Flow Charts for Diesels

-Torque that the clutch can hold before slipping
-optimum gearing

- MPH

-Ideal cruising speed

There is more:
- Weight transfer at breaking
- calculate stopping distance
- calculate aero hp and rolling resistance

How do you want it? With an example or pure formulas?

According to FASS:

95 GPH - Good for up to 450-500 HP
150 GPH - Good for up to 650-700 HP
180 GPH and above will feed anything else.

Ok- takes a while, do you want a word document to add some comments or PDF, or?

I'll write it tomorrow after work.
