Not a challenge or a competition, just a question from a car nut.<p>After all this time, what are the modded cars looking at? <p>I'm just curious as to what is actually possible with these cars; I know the old iPD/MTE kit promised 420, and some people were looking at the mid 300s with ECU/DP/intake/exhaust. I figure at this point the R owners would have a good handle on what power is possible and how it is possible. Can't exactly look in an import or Euro car mag and read about a Volvo.<p>I remember in the early days people were happy to just make the factory-advertised 300hp.

Re: 5+ years of mod development time... who has the most hp? (KMK454)

I believe big guy in Charlotte has the most unless someone has surpassed him. Last I heard he had a custom built motor and a big turbo, rebuilt driveline. I may have close to the most for the bolt on still on the stock motor crowd. I know Boosted's custom built motor is showing up soon and it will be a beast when he is done.

Josh's (R_Rated) old R probably has the most IIRC but I don't know who owns it now. Close behind are probably Benny (blot) and Tigers1981. Am I forgetting anyone?<BR><BR>

Re: 5+ years of mod development time... who has the most hp? (KMK454)

I didn't have the MOST HP, but I had a real RELIABLE and very smooth <B>380 HP.</B><br>The Sonic never missed a beat, was unbelivably smooth and quite quick.<br>It would have been interesting to drive an S60R with that combination, 200 or so lbs. lighter.<br>I believe the biggest thing that set mine apart was the (custom) ECU flash

Very smooth, very fun, and responsive. Couldn't compare it to the other 2 R's I drove, been too long. Speaking of 200 lbs, I think that's about how much stuff I had in my car when you drove it... haha. <p>So it sounds like 460 ahwp was done? R Rated? I thought he never gave out an actual dyno number?
