Looks like you said in the beginning.....you got many different opinions. I drive mine 50/50....50% easy driving and 50% of the time out is hard driving and track time. I am having traction issues at my RWHP so if I add more it would be usless unless I start dumping $$$ into the rear end set-up.

I always knew I wanted a supercharger on this car. I didn't get too caught up with HP numbers. The blower went on and I'm at about 500 rwhp. It sees the track occasionally, but it's mainly just a street car. With drag radials, it'll run 11's. My best on the stock tires was 12.06. To be honest, even when it was stock, it really couldn't be driven to it's full potential on the streets. It was adequate then. It's more than adequate now, and the only time I can really get on it is freeway on-ramps and long stretches of road when no one is around. At this point, even with new, fatter tires, the car is still traction limited. There's really no point in more power that I can't put to the ground without more upgrades.

I'm sure 700 or 800 HP would be fun, but that's just absolutely ridiculous for the streets. I think it's more about bragging rights than anything else.

I disagree. When I go out to play on the street the other cars are pushing 900-1100rwhp. A 500-700rwhp isn't even in the ballpark unless it weighs 2200lbs or less.

750rwhp is a good place for a 5th gen.

I don't see how you can legally play on the streets with 1000 HP. Are all these cars driving around on drag radials or slicks? I'd imagine getting all that power to the ground would be quite a challenge.

Speed limits aside, I imagine it would make for some fun times

It has nothing to do with need but it sure is fun. I'm not sure why you would have to answer questions about something that makes you happy. When your wife asks if you really need a 600 hp car, ask her how she would feel if you asked her if she really needs a husband.

forget the LS3 conversion...stick with a VVT cam.
over 600whp is fun for sure. It gets a bit different in the rain or loose stuff on road surface...you just have to respect the pedal. I would say it is no where near the limits of a street car. Maybe 700 like ADM has said...its all in power-weight ratio. You put a 600+whp LS motor in a vette you are on the cusp of rediculous...but in madness is excitement!

The best way I've heard it said is, "supercharging makes the car the way it should have been from the factory".

Definitely

Just doing a gear swap makes a nice difference, too.

Yes drag radials, but drag radials these days last awhile and hook pretty good.

When I bought the car, I knew it would get a bunch of my go fast work on it.
Been saving, and planning, and being a good boy. Work on cars all the time, so I know the value of doing it right.
The turbos and stuff have been in the shop for almost a year. I'm shooting for 600whp on my buddy's dyno, so double current power basically.
It's time. The car doesn't give me much of a rush at any speed anymore.
I still love it, but I need the rush. It's a heavy car. I think they are fun around 450whp(driven 2 at that power) and I'm hoping 600whp will be a little bonkers.
I'm assuming with my boost controller I can turn it as low as 475who or so on the springs. Only drive the car about 5 months a year, 3 months of which almost daily.
Glad you pulled the trigger. Have fun. Hopefully you don't get jaded as fast as most...

I'm at 570/520 at 9.6lbs and they guys at work ask me what its like to drive it and I tell them its simple:
You know when your driving around a near stock v8 car right after it rains and you can break the tires loose at will and think how cool it would be if you could do it when its dry out? There you go......
I will say that it doesn't do so hot with the gas needle though lol.
I will be doing a cam swap and ported heads this winter to help me reach 650.
