Lol, no I live in a more realistic world now.
Think about it, this a simple build, drop in low comp pistons, rods, and bearings, nothing else was done to the motor, no sleeving, head studs, cams, etc. The car is making 70-80 more whp and 80 - 100CHP over the top rated ESS OTS kits, with only 4 more psi and compared to other kits it's on that same dyno it's only 2psi more and remember with lowered compression you lose power. With the VT625+ you need 93+ octane, with the VT3 you can run 91 only. 660whp, depending on how you calculate DTL, is ~775CHP, that's plenty for a RWD car, lol, anymore what's the point? How do you put the power down, at that point you're more frustrated than happy. This is the ONLY way to reaslitically make more RELIABLE power without going crazy on the build, fuel system, blower, adding turbo's, etc. You didn't just buy more power, you bought upgrades for the motor to make it safer and more reliable for more boost.
A YSI blower? You guys ever heard one? They are obnoxiously loud, the T-Trim will not add anymore power and tapping the oil on this car is not ideal IMHO. Currently this is the only documented Stage 3 car, running a V3 Vortech, that is making ~660whp STD at 11psi on a Dynojet. Another factor is the DCT transmission, how much can it handle? I've already had one go out on me when I tried different clutch packs, so I'm done experimenting, let the other poor soul give it a try. The car runs AWESOME right now, I'm not about to do anything to it, except enjoy it for a good long while.
