Ben, I have made a lot of mods to my 83' TQC and I can only assume that I 
am running in the 300 hp range (I have never had it on a dyno). I have 
only put 3k miles on the car scince a very, very thorough rebuild. So far 
I have experienced no adverse side effects on any internal component. The 
only thing I have experienced scince the modifications were done was a 
hugh smile on my face! I would however strongly suggest that you have a 
second car to drive. I personally would never use the beast as a daily 
driver. I just love it though for a weekend blaster! If you have any 
further questions please let me know, I would be happy to answer anything.
