I have no reason not to believe you and yes I'm merely speculating about whp. However, think about this though, the first USDM WRX that's in the 10's is putting down 750AWHP. It even has a race trans in it (dog gears).Originally posted by aardvark
It very well could have been a built DOHC engine with a centrifugal supercharger and an intercooler. That setup would make 600 rwhp pretty easily even with stock cams.
Based on that info, and the cars are not too far apart in weight, then how could one be that much faster that the other given similar power and all??
Plus, I saw all kinds of sportbikes running last time at the track and there sure as hell weren't many cars even looking their way. Damn, on the highway those bikes should be a real handful.
Oh and BTW, look at the new SC'd Cobra that's coming out, it isn't putting down that kinda power.
