As per title, vote, state and explain if you use them

For me I have 128BHP, I mainly use them for blasting down slip roads and overtaking in 5th but rarely max it out due to cameras, cops, fuel costs, roads too busy.

reason for the thread?

Just being nosey!

Liam:)

PS - maybe a mod can sort out that thread title?

I got 170bhp (Seat FR TDI).

Much fun, but again I only put my foot down on lonely country roads- gotta conserve those miles on the motorway!

Pleasure - 217bhp from a NA 2 litre petrol engine in my Integra Type R.
For the true petrolheads, that means more bhp per litre than a standard McLaren F1.

Work - 420bhp from a 12 litre turboed straight six diesel in my Topline truck.

So...that's a total of 637bhp. =^>

Taking your thread title literally I have about 400bhp at my disposal - although it is spread over two cars :D

Nice one....I think if I add the total BHP of my current fleet(kids and all) it would easily get into the 400+ region,but sadly only 235 BHP for mine currently.

The maximum,when I could either afford the petrol or the warm-up times was about 440Bhp from one car.

About 280 in my Pulsar Gtir. Being 4wd and lightweight it makes good use of them reaching 60 in under 4sec.

200bhp from my own car but if you added all the cars up on the drive would be close to 700bhp lol.

Skoda Fabia vRS running 180bhp, but 312 lb/ft of torque for effortless mid-range acceleration and surprising overtaking ability :D Another 140bhp in the missuses Octavia Abiente TDi PD140.

Used to run a 265bhp Impreza. Not enormous power, but I had a chassis and suspension set-up to die for.

Very very pleasant and refined to drive and surprisingly quicker than it seems!

180 from a Skoda Octavia VRS. Don't use it too often, just on nice empty country roads near home :nono:

I take it your quoting flywheel BHP??

If so what have you done to the car to achieve the sub 4 second time... as i was under the impression the the standard car takes around 5.9 seconds to reach 60 and an extra 50 bhp isn't alot

I thought standard bhp was 220 bhp and 0-60mph in the mid-high 5 second region.

These turbo cars are easily tunable to bring 0-60 down into the 4+ second region, but you'd need to be talking serious tuning and serious £££ to gbet below 4 seconds, particularly if you didn't want the engine to blow up soon afterwards!!
