What "upper limits" are you expecting in a country that has a 110kph speed limit?

The other half said "Go kerry!"
It seems you have made up some of the browning point debt you are in.

Do you think going right hook for this project will cause too much drama?

450hp in a Mustang is plenty, and it will be very streetable if that's 450hp forced induction.

Seems you have a "smart other half" Lol

RHD is no drama,if that were the case I would use a R&P as it is a "no brainer'.

As in if it is RHD you would use a R&P?

Sounds like a good number to work too then hybrid (thats the only problem with a S/C is that you cant just turn a knob to put the power levels up or down)

You know any engine builders that have done this sort of setup Kerry?

RHD = R&P (makes an easy conversion with minimum bump steer issues & great header clearance)

Blower does not need to be turned on or off, your foot does that job.

Yes I know an engine builder that can work with that concept & Q's engine is there now. (actually ordered the internals for it today, will bring back from the US with me on the plane)

The money question is if the mrs or anyone else that drives the car can control their foot...but I am beginning to think that this is going to be another Q in the making (nobody is driving Q outside of the car park)

Has he had a chance to have a once over on Q's heart yet?

Yep & looks like the first time it has been apart.

New pistons coming. Probably will only be 20 over

Are there any ford engines to rival the aluminium LS engines for power to weight?

Or did I just ask for a public execution?
