    I've autocrossed a 650hp car, and if it's not "too much power," it's awfully close.

    450-500 is the sweet spot imo.

    500 wheel horsepower is about what I'd want in a Caterham, yes.

    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    A manual second gen NA Forester is my current practical dream car. Just so practical and way lighter, plus better visibility, than the third gen. Fourth gen spiced the model back up a bit though.

    I would stay away from adding too much power to a ‘14 mustang. They are the last year with the solid axle and can be a real bear to drive when the numbers go up. I’d focus on exaust, tune, suspension and braking. That will maximize the fun.

    Yeah I’m not planning on going crazy (yet?), I just want to put a little extra into it, show her that I'm thinking about her, ya know?

    Orrrr trade that sucker in and have a car payment for another like 6 years, idk, it depends on the day how responsible I'm feeling

    I've heard that Maximum Motorsports is one of the go to places for Mustang suspension stuff.

    One thing you should also consider when modifying your car is that the mods don't add value. They retract value. Your car will be worth less.
    There's this STi that's been up for sale here for 2 or 3 years that is modified as all getout, that they're asking a ridiculous price because they've modded it to like 650 WHP.
    People want to buy the unmodified cars because a) they never know how shitty the last owner is and b) they want to modify it themselves.
    That's just something to be aware of.


    Also, I completely forgot about Maximum Motorsports!

    Yep, between a modified car and a stock one, I will almost always pay more for a stock one. The only exception is a build with lots of documentation or where I personally know the builder.

    What can I say? I'm Australian, we like having almost enough power. I want to put an LT5 in a Toyobaru GT86BRZ, remember? 750 flywheel horsepower and 715 ft/lb of torque in a 2700 pound car, what could possibly go wrong?

    My dreams have to be at least semi-realistic, I'll never have the budget for a custom built twin-turbo LT motor. So, the crate LT5 will have to do. Or what's actually even more likely, a crate LT376 (535 hp and 470 ft/lb).

    You should look into purchasing a jet turbine, is all I'm saying....

    Tonight I ended up having front row tickets to a stoplight drag between a Hyundai Tiburon GT and a Subaru BRZ. Now, the BRZ is quite a bit quicker than the Tiburon in any case, but I think everyone waiting at that light was surprised to hear a big 'ol turbo spool up from under the hood of that BRZ as it quickly put three or four car lengths between itself and the Tiburon.
