Your clutch probably won't hold over 400-450 or so hp in the long run.

600-700 hp will not split the cases.
That sounds reasonable. I just thought there would be some people here who have modded their 930s and had them dynoed.

My buddy has a TT Supra and says guys are getting 600 hp out of that motor pretty easy. His in fact is close to 600 hp with one large turbo, modded intercooler, adjustable boost controller and of course a beefy clutch. I don't know the details but have driven the car and it's pretty crazy.

While I don't care to ever own a TT Supra, I was hoping the Porsches engine was beefy enough to provide the same level of performance.....just to know it can be done would be cool.
