    Tell me, do you really think the 3A92 is capable of 100 horsepower per cylinder?

    Throw a huge shot of nitrous at it? Kawasaki has a 300hp 1000cc bike. May have to find a wrecked one?

    A specific output of ~250hp/l would destroy this car.

    Lots of supporting mods would be needed.

    It very well could. many engines out there are producing insane amounts of power with turbos. Modern, albeit, high performance normally aspirated engines are now pushing 200hp/L, that skyrockets to close to 425hp/L with a turbo. I'm only speculating about producing ~250hp/L from the Mirage engine. That may be a stretch but I'm even more confident that ~200+ hp is doable.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way

    He built a normally aspirated Honda Insight to 440hp!!

    Someone needs to tell this man about the Mirage and then turn him loose.

    First send him here so I can tell him he's crazy and it can't be done. Well, maybe not call him crazy.

    I think you should send him your car. And a blank cheque. For science.

    Ha! Fat chance. I'm uncomfortable putting on a rear anti-sway bar much less spending the money on it. I can think of so many more satisfying ways to spend the cash.
