    It`s funny how people just toss around huge hp numbers like it`s an everyday thing.
    500whp for any car is a lot of power to take care of. It`s one thing to be able to
    build powerful engine for a car, it`s another to be able to drive it. Most people cannot do that with skill. 600hp is unnecessary IMO; especially for the e30 M3. Look at the Super GT cars here in Japan. They`re limited to 500hp, yet the`re the fastest cars out there. Nissan runs it`s GT-R with a N/A V8 over here in that series by the way. :gotcha:

      Those of us with 600whp cars will agree. More power demands more attention to suspension, braking, driving skills, and ultimately common sense. No question about that.

      As for it being 'unnecessary', that's purely a matter of opinion. 20 years ago, 600whp was well out on the fringe for a street car in the U.S. Not so in 2011. I don't plan to convert my present 600whp car back to a 300whp car ... ever.

        My 450 hp benchmark project is taking longer than I could've ever imagined... Getting irritated without my car... Withdrawal symptoms.
