I was reading an article in a magazine recently regarding aftermarket Ford blocks. After seeing some of the insane horsepower numbers that some of them are capable of handling (2500 hp?!!), I got to wondering how much would actually be streetable. I mean, would you drive a car with 1000hp on the street? How about 1200hp? Since there are a lot of variables, just for the sake of discussion let's use a few guidelines. First let's use a 1st or 2nd gen Cougar as the vehicle in question. Second, let's eliminate a couple responses that I'm sure will come up. Through the new QE3 program, we are all receiving unlimited funds to build this car and a card for free fuel whenever we need it. So no responses like "I can't afford to build a car that makes 800hp" or "I wouldn't be able to afford to drive it" need not apply. And lastly, this is a car that you would drive on the street. Maybe not a daily driver, but a car that you would put the kids in the back seat and drive them to school. It's meant to go more than 1/4 mile at a time.
