Naturally aspriated, maybe, but 600hp will create other problems too. Stock compression is 10.4:1.

If you were talking about a blower or nitrous car, I'd say you are nuts. But naturally aspirated, its not the compression ratio that you need to worry about. Its the 600hp on the stock bottom end and pistons.

You need to plan a full bottom end upgrade to safely run 600hp.
