    That doesn't look like a chop. check out the reflections in the filters and underside of the turbines. Plus the motor has been posted 'round the 'net before and it had to go into SOMETHING...

    If that's a chop, it's certainly one hell of a chop. I have been looking at it in Photoshop, magnified in on some critical areas and everything is bang on, as well as all of the reflections in the right areas. I say it's real.

    Both supercharging and turbocharging are not uncommon, seen in many applications over the years, Diesels, piston aircraft, older race cars (when they were infuenced more from WWII aviation technology..)

    That motor is wicked, methinks the #'s are going to be massive.

    acctually my understanding is it would multiply the 20psi by 8 psi (or something to that effect)

    Since the charger is built to run off of atmospheric (SP?) pressure, by increasing the inlet pressure it will compound the S/C's ability to build boost

    should make a fuckload of boost

    people are doing the same thing with compound turbo chargers as seen in the picture below


    thats what it said exactly

    Ummm... ok.

    Note how there is no side turn signal, the bumper is completely different, the grille doesn't point out on the one you linked, the hoods are different, the body character lines are at different heights on the sides, the headlight surrounds are different, the front turn signals are different and.. to cap it all off.. even the fucking badging is different.

    So.. what are the similarities? They both have round headlights? So did a lot of cars when sealed-beams were the hot hit.

    I love that, you're all solid when you think you're right but you can't even prove yourself.

    It very well may be an MX-3, but the sheetmetal has nothing in common with what you pictured.
