    There's a limit on streetable horsepower as far as beuing drivable, but it depends on the driver more than the HP numbers. Your machine shop is teh dumbass.

    I got a buddy with a 12:1 2.0L GSR that he drives every day. Runs 12.9's all motor. And it's not even all that extreme. 215ish at the wheels. Revs it to 9500 rpm. PERFECTLY streetable, 28-30 mpg around town.

    its streetable if yo uknow how to drive it..... i think what the shop is saying is if you use stupid big cams and a really high cr, your idle and low speed is gonna be a pain in the ass to work with.

    I would floor it at every light, I had a hard time keeping the first civics tires from breaking loose, but I did it on purpose. If I was really trying I could probably keep it "safe and sane".

    FWIW, like seany said as long as it does have really aggresive cams you should be ok.

    Well that’s more less the answer I was looking for, I only ask b/c I never met a person who drove a 1000 HP car every day 2 and from work or whatever. That’s why people buy trailers. But I guess it really does depend on how u drive it b/c any car regardless of it HP, will F*** up if U floor it at every light and redline it constantly........so basically Godly HP+Good Driver=long lasting asphalt destroyer but a bad Godly HP+Dumb Ass Driver= Buying a new engine every week........... :ranting2:

    honestly, thats not even fast nor appraches the limit for a streetable car. Tbone has a 2.1 all motor gsr/itr and went 11.77 @ 126 i think was the trap and makes just over 240/165 to the wheels

    there's a lot more to going fast than hp numbers.

    You need to call your ISP and have them disconnect you.

    Why don't you shut the fuck up, you fucking waste of cum? The best part of you ran down the crack of your momma's ass and ended up as a brown stain on the mattress, son! You know what your problem is? You just don't have a fucking clue. You read shit like, oh, I don't know... fucking Sesame Street... and then you bust into your 8th grade english class, all full of piss and vinegar and get the piss (and vinegar) knocked right the fuck out of you by someone like me, who... you guessed it... knows what the fuck I'm talking about ALL THE FUCKING TIME. YOU need to shut the fuck up. YOU need to leave the internet to the grown ups. YOU need to unfuck yourself and start shitting me tiffany cuff links or I WILL SERIOUSLY FUCK YOU UP!
