Do You Need 1000 Horsepower?
Do You Need 1000 Horsepower?
Perhaps it’s important to differentiate between “want” and “need” for this video, but I think the premise still stands. The main point of this video is about how much power your ‘build’ actually needs as compared to how much you might want.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot as of late because I’ve been doing research and gathering parts for my Integra Type R build. I’ve talked to a lot of knowledgeable people and I feel I know a ton more about building an Integra than I did before I started. For me, that’s the best part of the build, the knowledge I gain from the experience. I hope this video helps share some of that insight and also helps you with your projects.
Let me know in the comments what you think about this topic. Do you think 1000hp is too much, or not enough?
