So, a general question for you guys for some opinions. I've had a few people tell me that this isn't going to be a very fun on the street engine to drive. What's everyone's thoughts on that? To be honest I was shooting for the 400 to 450 range and hit a bit over 500 instead.
What is the upper end of HP thats still sensible to drive on the street.
Another factor is that's the corrected HP rating for the motor. I'm at 7,000 feet so I'm sure it's less than 500 hp here.
No thoughts on the TC, but can’t see why this motor wouldn’t be a blast on the street. The dyno pull doesn’t show below 4k, but the dyno seems to show it’s making all its power below 6k, which seems quite reasonable.
The 7k altitude is a challenge, but it is what it is. Enjoy!
