    730whp/710tq

    something tells me they could have gotten the same power outta that LS1 with one or two big turbos :wtf:

    theres a LT1 twinturbo bolt-on kit that will give 750 hp. with a stock motor.

    it was on HPTV today. :D

    Wow overkill is right, can you say lag?

    Yeah, the guy built it purely for the shock value of it. Sure you can make more with less, but it looks cool!

    I doubt there is any lag with that setup.

    Shouldn't be any lag with that setup at all, the turbines are pretty damn small, they'd spool quickly at a very low RPM. Looks sick!

    Built motor + Nitrous would have made more. Plus, it would be more driveable and a ton less expensive...

    Question?:

    I don't see how it would be more drivable Pat? With your setup I would imagine you would have a higher compression ratio, therefore require high octane gas. Besides last time I checked the local gas stations didn't carry NOS on tap, and to get the same constant performance the above car has you would be required to trailer a NOS bottle with you.

    Well, you don't have the oil pressure and mainfold pressure problems of a multiple-turbo setup, you don't have the added problems of fuel mapping for so many paramaters (my setup would have 1 fuel map for motor, 1 for N2O... at WOT).

    If you think you'd not need high-octane gas for a multi-turbo setup like that, you are probably retarded.

    What's the matter about carrying N2O on tap? Who fuckin' cares? I don't race on the streets (thusly, the built motor setup is more tractable and driveable than a multi-turbo setup) and tracks carry nitrous (which is not NOS, but N2O)

    First am not retarded, i understand the turbo would need high octane gas.........

    The manifold pressure would be taken into consideration with the build of the motor so i don't see that as an issue. Dependant upon how much N20 your running the manifold pressure could be a problem for your setup.

    Yes the fuel maps would be an issue on the turbo setup, but once completed it is done.

    As for the N20 on tap issue. I assumed when you meant drivability you meant street, and not track.

    I meant in any condition, I don't race on the track so not only would I not use the high boost from the Turbos, I would not use the Nitrous. Simple, isn't it?

    The fuel maps would *not* be set-and-forget like you describe. Turbos are picky about humidity, temperature, elevation, everything... and you can't account for all of that on the memory of 1 ECU. That is why so many factory turbo cars are designed to run very right, sacrificing performance. In this setup, being that it is aftermarket, it wold be a lot more than some simple performance degredation.

    Nitrous would not cause undue manifold pressures, only higher fuel pressures are needed which are also needed for the turbocharger setup.

    Correct me if am wrong here, but I believe you would need to as well adjust your maps for issues as barometric pressure, humidity and other weather variables when your on the bottle for max performance? I understand you would need to only need to change one map (wot).

    I understand the effects of atmospheric variables on turbos, owned a few turbo'd cars in my life.

    I would like to know what the setup is of this quad turbo.

    Looks like 8 turbos, check out the first pics at the back of the block!

    You'd not need to change the mapping for WOT on the bottle, because you'd not be racing on the streets. I am pretty sure you're missing the whole point of that... I'm not going to have the bottle open, on, armed, anything on the streets... and as far as changing the WOT maps for atmospheric conditions.. why? It's an open-loop map scenario...
