Any one know what all I would have to do to get 600hp at the wheels. I have the 4.6 stock but 600 is my goal. I want it to be all motor if posiable. ;)

you (as a newbie) need to explore, absorb and consume the copious information contained within these forums. All of your questions have been answered and they will help to temper your lofty expectations. The search button is your friend. (and 600hp isnt going to happen)

:zwthstpd: There is only one Bird I could think of that would put that power to the ground. The one I'm thinking of is probably closer to 500 anyway. The IRS and general design of these cars don't lend themselves to crazy HP numbers.

Young grasshopper must walk before strapping himself to the nose of a missile anyway.

600rwhp has already been well surpassed in a fully streetable, full interior, full weight MN12. 700rwhp probably isn't far off either.

IMO, if you had the money to make it possible, your car would already be in the hands of a professional race car builder and it would be getting done as we speak...and you wouldnt be asking how to do it....and thats putting it nicely ;)

And exactly how many of them are N/A? :tongue: (refering to the original post in the thread) (im going out on a limb - which us little 300lb guys normally don't do and say there are exactly 0 )

True, it would be pretty tough to do naturally aspirated. I took:

As a matter of fact there is a local up here who has a 700 HP bird (no it isn't the Gold one)

Your best bet would be to forge a 5.0 pushrod motor, give it a vortech and lots of boost.
It'd be cheaper than building up a 4.6..... that's for dayumn sure
