It is just me, or...
It seems like lately a lot of new members are asking for 600 hp + street motors. Has the old 1 hp per cubic inch changed for a good street motor? I'm taking about, jump in it and run motors. Is solid roller cams, 11 to 1 compression, all running on 91-octane fuel common now?
It seems like everyone now likes to push the compression ratio limit to the max now. How much power are you actually losing going a little lower on the compression, especially if your engine detonates with the higher ratio?
Just observing how many people actually take care of their engines, and do all the necessary modifications to the rest of the car to take 600 hp and 600 ft of torque, it seems like bad advice sometimes to some of the new members on building a 600 + hp "street" motor.
That being said, how can I get 700 hp? :mrgreen:
