200 hp on the dunes is one thing. Over 200 at the limit on pavement is quite another.
The amount of seat time I have at, over, and near the limit tells me I'm right.
Al, get your car done! Gordon, cheers!
My engine is supposed to be 125hp, but my guess is that it's closer to 100. It's plenty for me in a 1300lb car. And it keeps the feel of an original better IMO. Driving a slow car fast is a lot more fun than driving a fast car slow.
Last summer I ran into a few guys that I went to high school with (or their big or little brothers) at a car show. They all had Cobra replicas. Kirkhams (they're her in town) Factory 5's, etc. To a man, they all wished they'd made 289's. They said the 427's were just brutal and they used their cars a lot less often because of it.
