builds on these cars are WAY more than 30K. At 30K you're just getting started.

That number is just ridiculous. I doubt the suspension could even hook properly to make that much power worthwhile. It's not just the engine that would need some SERIOUS upgrading, it'd be the whole damn car. Im sorry, but there is just no way you can make a reliable 2Kwhp car for 30K. No way. Not happening.

I mean, sure, you can tune it to that and produce a fancy dyno sheet. But driving it around like that for daily use? Pfffff.....

We've built 1K+ HP cars here at at the shop, dyno tune them for a nice sheet, and then de-tune them down to 600-700 HP so our customers can actually drive them.

The amount of work that goes into the motor, chassis, suspension, trans, rear end etc is tremendous just to support 1K for a quick dyno run.
I DD over 1K to the ground, soon to be around 1500. It may be a little much for most but I take my daughter to school every day in it.

I knew a customer who bought a Ford GT. He owned it for two months and then sold it because "It scared the shit out of him" and he almost wrapped it around a pole while doing what he thought was a normal launch from a stop light.

Sometimes too much power is just that....too much.

I may be wrong but I don't think that's an ls that's the new gen 5 WBC the lt1. People need to get all bonerific for them ASAP. That way I can pick up a gen 4 block instead of my 3 so I can add underside piston oilers for a biiiiig shot of juice.

You have to respect it, thats for sure. You also need to know how to drive and I'm not talking about parallel parking. If you don't know what you're doing or are scared a big power car will end you rather quickly.

I think I see where you're getting that now.

From Wiki:

Quote:
The Chevrolet small-block engine is a series of automobile V8 engines built by the Chevrolet Division of General Motors using the same basic small (for a V8) engine block. Retroactively referred to as the "Generation I" small-block, it is distinct from subsequent "Generation II" LT and "Generation III/IV" LS, and "Generation V" (LT/EcoTec3) engines.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrol...l-block_engine

When you posted LT1 I was thinking of the old, Gen II, engine.

Right it's confusing that they brought back the name. Supposed to be nasty motors and boost friendly. I'd like to buy a new ss for my wife when they put them in there.

Very SOUND advice! I spent a LOT of time learning how to drive my car when it was stock. So glad because I definitely would have wrecked it had I not. Once I knew WTF I was doing, then and only then, did I add more power. (and learned all over again but at least I had a bench mark) Right now I'm at 700 rwhp and absolutely LOVE it! I'm right at the point where I'll need to rebuild the bottom end if I want to take it higher safely. I've upgraded traction and braking and have it "dialed in" perfectly. The best part about it is it's still street legal and very dependable. When I track it, I just change the pulley, load the new tune (and TORCO) and I'm done. I can't imagine how it would feel with the kind of power you're putting down.

I enjoy the vids of the gtr vs the crotch rockets. Blows them off the line, then leaves them in the dust. It's a seriously impressive car.

when I had my CBR600RR, i had a Mustang (early 90's body) want to go; we went from a 25MPH roll on, on I35, and he pulled the entire way with me all the way up to about 150.
we did it one more time, and exited and gave him a thumbs up.

not sure what motor he had in it, if it was naturally aspirated or not etc.
