I made just under 300Hp to the wheels uncorrected. 4 door 1957 chevy.
Buddy made well over 500 Hp to his wheels coyote 2015 mustang supercharged 5.0 Not stock.
I beat him in a heads up race at the local drag strip.
Beat other cars with 475 to the wheels.
Just a number and like said the drag strip is where it happens.
I have been in a Dodge with 750 to the wheels and it felt very slow but was a 5000 lb ride so it needed it.
Fox body Mustang i was in with 600 to the wheels and 3.23 rear gears TH400 trans.
That thing you could not control on the street.. 35 mph in high gear would blow the tires off uncontrollably.
At the 1/4 mile drag strip it went 9.1 ET.
Congrats to you that put it to the ground.
I put mine to the ground and that wins races.
So my under 300 to the wheels works well.
Yea i would like much more but not so much that i can't pull my 20 foot Pontoon to the lake 150+ miles away
Here is my under 300 to the wheels vs the 2015 coyote mustang of my buddies. He has smaller blower pulley exhaust and a tune. 6 speed and 373 gears. Fun stuff. He sold it a couple weeks after the race.
