Hello, you had a question and now I have a question which does relate to yours. I want to pump mine way over 200hp and probably closer to 300hp. So Chill man.

If you want the hp with a modded stock engine and mod the stock transaxle I would say 500hp would be a reasonable max weather you use turbo or centrifugal sc. Both could be streetable, meaning not high maintenance. I will offer Hectors turbos so thatí* that story but I also have a line on a company who will set you up with a centrifugal sc. The rest is easy to do and I can get you all types of levels of workmanship from backyard up to the same company who blueprints Rolls-Royce engines. Same company who builds parts for the biggest cranes in the world. Anything custom I can get you but in the end be ready to spend money. Believe it or not but I still get people who want me to buy them engines. LOL My interest is providing the link; projects like this are all about love of the project I donít take the money in the end ití* the builder you pay.

Oh the max for the engine would be in the 6-700hp ranges. But the transaxle at this time will not take it. That will also soon change. Oh yes i am talking about series 1 non sc or SC 3.8l engines.

Tim..nice to see you back

I think maybe 185-190 based on what I'm seeing here. When you say minor mods, I assume exhuast, intake, performance plugs/wires. Since there are no chips avail, this as minor as it gets.

Lets see: V6 3800 165 HP stock
Exhaust 2.5" diameter pipe with MagnaFlow or DynoMax whatever and high flow cat: maybe 10-15 HP
Intake: Another 10HP

Thats an extra 25HP, do you agree or what?
