Yes, but it will NOT be streetable and it would be cheaper to go FI and make more power and have a driveable car.

We have a few members over 170 NA and they cars were very temperimental

No kidding, what is that and what tranny? I do know 200whp is possible, plus Focus Central did it in their drag car. Its in the "High Performance Focus" book. By the way, I think everyone should own a copy of that book

I'm thinking its a Caterham Zetec...or maybe a MD with a Zetec.

[edit]

I followed the image link, and turns out its a 60s/70s Euro Lotus with a Zetec conversion.

Only the FC track car had to be towed to the line and couldn't do anything but race...like viney said, anything that high N/A is not streetable.

yea i found that quite humerous when wayne told me it only made it to the end of the track and had to be turned off...the thing had a stock block so that is understandable...they had another focus on that site that was putting 189 to the wheels and running 14.3s, thats pretty respectable

Talk to Steeda if you really want to do this. They built a zetec with 220 whp for their racing bumble bee car which is made to compete in road courses and was coming in 7th weighing in at more than 500 lbs more than any other purpose built race car out there (they used a 2000 zx3 chasis).
