Yes like a TT V6 Q motor is even remotely close to tackling a 4 cyl
Great mental thought, but seriously even if accomplished, driving a 500hp spider would be death...

It would be in the Quad too, hence they have a computer that looks after the traction in most cases, but as we can see by the number being crashed ... simply too much horsepower for a road car.

I'm embarrassed that Alfa Romeo joined this stupid game. Should have concentrated on driver involvement, not played the car magazine hp game

my 195 tp 205 hp is more than enough for my car.. anymore would just be a waste of money..come -on how fast do you need to get to 60 mph? 100 mph? my 0-60 should be in the low to mid 5 sec. range, more than quick enough....and also how much tire can you stuff under the car, with out going to body wheel flares..like to keep my bodyshell, as close to oem as possible...205/50/16 look quite nice on a well set up lowered car.. fills the wells very nicely

I rode in a neighbor’s 69 chevelle SS with a very hot LS conversion. I was an old hot rodder back in the day but that made me realize in a hurry those days are long gone for me! Dang that thing was fast! And I’ve had big block 57’s, a v8 pinto, hot corvettes!

tunnel almost done.. were i could not weld.i used pop rivits.. then sealed it with silcone... and plan to mount the ecu just above the rad/.keep it cooler there campared to the passenger side.. no room on the drivers side.. and also they will be some cooling air flowing around it.. there will be a sheet steel mount for the ecu.. so there will be lots of air space below the ecu
