    350 hp is a more realistic goal w/ boost... 600hp, you're gonna have some serious traction problems.. let me guess, this will be your daily driver too..

    well, you could boost a b16 to 350 on stock internals.. but as said before.. if you got deep pockets, anything is possible

    so how much hp would get me 11.2 sec comfortably

    If the b16 can get me to 11.2 consistently it stays if it doesn't im ging out to look for a K20 engine

    you really think an 11.2 1/4 is gonna be comfortable.. it'll be a jarring ride, far from comfortable

    350 hp is easily achievable with a b16a swap. No hands on experience, but I think it's as easy as a bolt-on turbo kit with a boost controller and a good dyno tune :). $2,500 shipped b16a changeover with misc. parts you'll need and if you can install it yourself that's the swap price, then maybe $4,000 for a bolt-on turbo, and roughly $80/hour of dyno tuning.

    HP to get to 11.2? That would depend on other mods like weight reduction, tuning, racing experience, gear ratios. 2 cars weighing the same, one has 300 hp the other has 400 hp, if the guy running 300 hp has more experience, a really good tune, better gear ratios, while the other guy with 400 hp has garbage tuning and gear ratios/racing experience, the guy running 300 will most likely take the win. There's a lot of factors that can change the amount of hp to hit a certain et :).

    that would be damn expensive though it would make an intersting project. I think you would wanna just by a dart block for that.
