I have a 100hp xb9 based (86 ftlbs of torque) running 11.43:1 compression and it has been reliable for me,
but due to my own physical limitations I do not have that many miles on it.
With a 1050 kit, a micron exhaust, an open airbox, and a little tweaking of the ECM map either through
direct link or ECMspy you should easily hit 100 reliable HP on pump gas (10-10.5:1 compression)

I don't know if I agree with the "easy" part.

I know of stock 9's that have been dyno'd at 90hp (No_Rice's at the exhaust shoot out) with
a Drummer SS, Open airbox, Direct Link (Al and Terry tweaked it) and no internal mods.
No, it was not on the nitrous at the time.
It really is a matter of using the right combination of parts and having a GOOD tech to
modify the maps to suit your engine's needs.
So, I guess I should have said fairly easy.
