As elsolo stated this motor would be horrible to drive on the street. If you are wanting comparable power numbers and have the car still remain streetable, I would advise going the route of turboing your car and building up the motor to support higher horsepower numbers. Also, Lexan windows=bad idea...They are not DOT approved and they haze really bad after a couple of months. At least the ones that I have seen.
