I always find these threads interesting. A peak horsepower number really doesn?t mean much. I?d rather have car with 450 ft lbs of torque from 1500 to 4500 rpm and 450 hp than a car that makes 500 peak hp at high rpm.
This all day long! There is a huge difference between peak power and usable power.

All you need is a JB4 and you'll have over 400 whp
Yup, but i will let JB4 on map 1, and put INJEN intake, ssr downpipes and ssr axle-back exhaust, with that I hope hit 400whp!!

I'd be happy with somewhere around 450RWHP. It's enough to play with a majority of the performance cars out there and plenty to silence the ricers!

500+ but this will not be achievable with out some form us customer tune, bigger turbos, fuel rails, fuel pump, E85 and the fingers crossed for not exploding the transfer case or trans. For the next 3 years my goal is suspension, bolt on's (exhaust & CAI), then pipes, up and down (catless). Once someone figures out how to really tune these with a HP Tunner or AccessPort the vehicle will be kinda limited.

I'm like the majority of these guys, 400 to 435 at the rear wheels. That's plenty for a daily driver.

Those stickers will surely add 25hp to your dyno.

I think I have maxed my 3.3 out without going in too deep. Cat back exhaust, uncle race chip 91 octane setting, race chip xlr throttle, intakes. She's no joke and spanking a lot of ass but I'd like to do even more if I can. Bolt on stuff only. Don't wanna mess with the warranty. [raceflag] Goal: eat m4's.
