You can beat up most things at 350whp while getting your car weight down to about 2100lbs, and you can take on most newer cars under 800hp.I like the d16y8 just because I want to beat up someone with a single cam that’s the only reason really
Agreed. I went through this making 400+ and I went through ALOT of head Gaskets once I was up over 20PSI of boost. Didn't matter what head studs I got; I kept stretching them. I was like personal friends with the fastener companies because the head gaskets just kept going and the head studs stretching. I even made some custom sleeves to increase the pressure on the head gasket which helped a bit...You can have a lot of fun and do it pretty cheaply to 400 hp (vitara/headstuds with some no notch rods). Once you go above that you should really think of going K series. The only reason people on here build north of 500 is because they are in love with the single cam. To hold over 500 reliably you will need to at a minimum css the block, and prob invest in larger diameter headstuds (they like to blow headgaskets) and maybe a good cam.
