    Does anyone even know if the F1 system can handle that much power? Amazing that it's even possible with the stock tranny parts.

    Any idea what was done to the engine to pump it up that much. This is the first time I've seen a Enzo with the engine modified for more horsepower. Somebody sure was brave playing around with that engine.

    Any form of performance (power, handling, SOUND, any of them) is more addictive than herion, sometimes you just cant get enough.

    900 Horsepower in a car that light may give it some traction problems. Would you have to reprogram the traction control for the increase in horsepower. Also I'm sure this required some remapping of the engine as well. There is no way that much horsepower was added with a K&N air filter and some headers.:)

    Oh come on that sticker on the windscreen has to worth 100hp and gosh what do the local Civic guys quote a filter change will get ... atleast 50hp ... ;)

    Pete
    ps: I actually like the sticker, removes the bubble look of the windscreen and adds a much needed menasing look.

    MATT,
    About the traction control, the best wat to reprogram it with the 900hp is to turn the damn thing off! ;)

    I doubt that. Why would someone ruin the lines on an F50 by putting an ugly air intake on it for only 30hp when all he would have to do would be to run straight pipes?

    Well, it actually gained 80hp but the ugliness of the snorkels cost about 50hp. :)

    I read in a french magazine that it had 620 hp ..but 800 hp might be too much for a 4.7l

    A classical misconception. The transmission and clutch are rated in TQ not in HP.

    To a first order, if the Enzo power is produced by super/turbo-charging this increases TQ and thereby increases HP at the same or similar revs.

    If the power is obtained by reving the crap out of it naturally asperated, then the TQ output of the engine is not altered radically and revs produce the extra HP.

    If the clutch can hold the TQ being put through it, then the clutch does not car about how mch HP is going through it--if it holds, its not burning up.

    To first order, if the TQ does not bend shafts, crush bearings, or fatigue the teath on the gears the transmission can be made to deal with the HP going through it (by maintaining lubrication and disipating the heat through the oil/air heat exhanger.)

    I agree Chevarri! That is about the same amount of horsepower as a Formula One car. I bet it's a screamer. I looked on the website of the guys that supposedly put this thing together but couldn't find the car. However I noticed they had two race prepped 550's and a 360 GTC so they have the money. Maybe I'm an idiot and the engine isn't that complex. However I do know for a fact that blowing one up is pretty expensive. What is the replacement price on an Enzo engine?
