So many people look at tuning as bragging rights. The have X wheel HP or output.

The problem is that this car is a factory RWD 12 second quarter mile car. More power doesn't linearly mean faster anymore. You might increase 30whp and still achieve about the same quarter mile time.

I've driven a 12 second quarter mile car. Frankly, on the street car, it blows my mind. Of course I could enjoy more raw thrust, but at what expense?

This thing is going to be making the rear tires SQUIRM stock with all that torque all over the powerband. The best investment is probably going to be, for raw acceleration, the most aggressive street legal tires available.

But no one wants to go that direction. I'd rather say I'm putting out 500hp.
