I cannot refute what you consider a "street capable car." But higher octane fuel is easily attainable and can be stored in your garage if needed lol. The fact remains Ford, Chevy, and Dodge all make 800-1000hp capable engines from factory."If race fuel doesn't count then that b58 hitting 1000hp doesn't count lol."
Yup! If you can't run it on pump (max 94 R+M/2), then to me it's not a street capable car. I could say my car is xxx hp, tuned on 116 octane race gas but other than at the dyno or track is that what I'm running on a daily basis???? If I only run it on a dyno or ¼ mile, do I actually have a street car? Give me a car that handles, brakes and puts out a reliable 500-700 HP at the crank and I'm happy. These tuner dyno and ¼ mile queens that can't be daily driven don't interest me. In this case it's just an engine strapped to a dyno!!! I don't get the point.
