    Depends on the size of the engine, the type of engine, and the speed it's going.

    The ones I deal with flow at something like 600 litres per minute.

    Between 500hp and about 4,000hp.

    Yes I'm a dude, as are lots of the people here. However this isn't psychicsforums.com and you need to put some more detail into your questions if you want some more detailed answers.
