Depends what you are used to driving, I think my 564whp M-Roadster is slow. Most people into F.I. will probably agree that something sub 400whp, even 500whp is slow for current times. A whole lot of cars from all manufacturers rolling out of the dealer with much more HP than 360-380whp these days

I agree, slow or fast is all objective. Enjoy your new car, but just know that there is a high likelihood that you will want more power, then more, then more, etc. It's very addicting!

And yes, anything under 500rwhp is slow unless your car weighs under 2500lbs

Just to add... There is absolutely nothing wrong with the headgasket and I have no intentions of touching it at this point.

Car is at its limit on stock hg but I have no intentions of going with any more power in the near future so it should be just fine
