You know, the last time I drove a Honda Odyssey, I thought, "Man, this thing could really use another 781 horsepower." Thank goodness for the folks at Bisimoto, then, who have brought this "Power-Van" to the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. It's your standard seven-passenger Honda Odyssey with massive powertrain tuning to deliver a full 1,029 horsepower. Honda has not listed the torque output, but we imagine it's roughly eleventy billion foot-pounds.

That crazy power bump has been achieved through the use of – *deep breath* – an Infinity ECU, Arias pistons, ARP headstuds and bolts, Bisimoto's own 360-degree oil cap, a cat-back exhaust system, stainless mufflers, an improved fuel pump, new spark plugs, custom headwork, R&R custom steel rods, Turbonetics BTZ7265 twin turbochargers, a wastegate, blowoff valve, VP racing fuels and a whole lot more. Honda says the only chassis/suspension modifications come in the way of Fifteen52 wheels, 225/30-series Toyo T1 Sport tires and Young Guns performance exhaust coatings. So as far as we can tell, this thing still uses a front-wheel-drive setup. I bet it'll do somersaults.

Of course, this is SEMA, where we assume there's a four-modification minimum for any car that enters the Las Vegas Convention Center, so the Odyssey has been given added visual flair, as well. Outside, that means there's a Denmatic design theme, a whole mess of Honda accessories (check out that roof tub) and some new paint. Inside, upgraded upholstery has been fitted, as have Recaro seats.

It's hella absurd, this Odyssey, but boy oh boy, do we want to drive it (or, at least, watch someone else attempt to). Have a full look in the gallery above, and read the complete details in the press blast below.

      Hey, Chris Martin from Honda PR here. Just to clarify a few things that I saw in the comments. 1) Bisimoto converted this Odyssey to a manual transmission, specifically the 6MT with limited-slip from the 2008 Acura TL Type-S. They also upgraded the clutch internally as well as multiple other engine and driveline components. I haven't driven it yet, but I'm told by 'Bisi that it was designed to withstand the extra power. 2) The van is riding on an airbag suspension, allowing adjustable ride height. It's dropped to the ground in the display for dramatic effect, but you clearly wouldn't want to drive it that way. 3) Why did we work with 'Bisi on a minivan project? Why not? If you have kids, and 'Bisi is a new dad, you should still be able to have some fun with your ride. The SEMA Show is a great place to show off extreme concepts, and I think this one fits in that category.

      "Honda says the only chassis/suspension modifications come in the way of Fifteen52 wheels, 225/30-series Toyo T1 Sport tires and Young Guns performance exhaust coatings." With 1,000+ horsepower, you would quite literally NEVER get traction when in boost on those 225s.

      I'm a car nut with four kids, so this is pretty much my dream car. Only three concerns: * Can we get a little more ground clearance? I need to be able to make it over a speed bump, and not look like a drug dealer. * Hate the wheels. Again, this isn't a cocaine delivery van. * TORQUE STEER!

          I must have missed where the article says that. It does say, "Honda says the only chassis/suspension modifications come in the way of Fifteen52 wheels, 225/30-series Toyo T1 Sport tires and Young Guns performance exhaust coatings."

      I bet it torque steers worse than a Ford Focus.

      Bisimoto's own 360-degree oil cap must be worth at least 50hp if its worth mentioning.

      And instead of getting only 70k out of an Odyssey transmission, they'll get 10.
