3000HP Mustang??

I'll bet you can fit that engine in a 986. Straight swap with conversion kit?

Mustang

My son rebuilds fox body engines and tranny's. He is installing a new turbo into his race car right now. Pretty impressive run. May have been in the .4's with better driving but nice recovery all the same.

This is what happens if you don't use that HP carefully:

That's just ridiculous.

Taking any one aspect of a car to extremes is odd to me. No different than adding a 3ft tall spoiler or a false hood scoop.

All that power and it still can't take a corner.

I'd like to have a 350 hp Boxster.

That would be 150 more than I need, but it would sure be fun!

I'll pass on that motor but I wouldn't mind having this Renault formula engine in my car though!

Well, exactly.

Eventually you're going to have to turn the thing, and you have to get to about 17 MPH, and then what was the point of all that engine? :roll eyes:

Plus, I think the new ones are kind of . . . unattractive . . .
