Good response Poschefile

IMHO, a turbocharged EFI 3.3L running 1.1bar will develop between 550-570HP at the flywheel (or about 480'ish RWHP). That is some serious power for a street car and I bet would be a handful to handle on a track.

I use to be one of those guys who wanted BIG HP #'s too, but now I prefer excellent spool-up and response, since my car is pure street. Nothing much can really keep up with that sort of power:weight ratio anyway.

Aim for 500 reliable engine HP and you'll have a reliable street monster
