HAHAHAHA! I like your humor, I think you mean "At this rate you'll be at 000.500hp in no time lol."!
It might be a angry lil sewing machine when I am all done with it, might even make a mean pair of Levi's to wear on date night with the wife, J/K
All kidding aside I personally would not want the up keep of a 500hp Honda for a daily driver, they are fun track cars and I really love the rush of the feeling of that kind of power , but my goals with this car are completely different and straight lines are boring when you can be having a nice dance with the car in every turn you carve.
Once you start going past a certain point reliability goes out the window with efficiency and staying a little reserved with the proper parts you can extend longevity of the motor and your wallet, at least that's the point of this car.
But... If I did look at some form of forced induction...it would be a self contained unit like a centrifugal charger that did not suffer from heat soaking. They have a nice smooth linear power band from start to finish so that you are able to lay down the power much more efficiently; which also allows you to load the suspension more efficiently threw cornering at various speeds.
That way you do not fight a surge of power or any heat soak since it uses it's own oil supply, and is located outside of the hot engine bay and nice 2-3core air to air cooler only makes it even better by lowering your intake air temps even further.
The best part is if you do it right and know where to look... You can even keep your A/C, so you can have your cake and eat it too
