Wow! You sure about all those ponies numbers? My buddy drag races 440's and the best he can get is 450 Hp with a fully blue printed 440 with forged crank. And we're talking an investment of over $15,000 in just the engine. And that with him doing the machine work and parts at cost.
I built a very stout 350 HP Cummings and put it in my Fleetwood Limited and have a hard time keeping stock transmissions alive in it. I'm currently throwing money at a fully built Allison for it with billet TQ and all the trimmings.
How about some specs on the build to explain how you're getting 750 HP out of it.
My son's Drag Car with Full Race LS1 can only put out 600 HP at the crank on a dyno running on pump gas.
I would expect with that much HP you're probably a mile per 5 gallons of gas.
Pictures would be great too!
BTY, Stock that 440 only put out 225 HP on it's best day!
