Opinion on hp.
c.read posted a topic in 1969-70 Technical ForumHey everyone, This is my first post I just joined. I am about to buy a 1969 Mustang coupe and it does not have a motor or transmission it is pretty much a rolling body. I plan to restore it to my dream muscle car. I was wanting to build something that is fast. I was looking for a motor with like 600hp but I am second guessing it now. I want to have enough hp to lift the front tires and have fun at the track but I still want to be able to drive it to work once or twice a week. I am not too worried about the cost but at the same time I am not made of money. I do plan on getting a street/strip transmission. I have been reading to lift the front wheels on a vehicle it normally takes about 600 ft lbs of torque. I am just wanting some of yall's opinion. I dont want to come off as some little kid that is all about horse power because I want this to be a good driver too.
