This car would have close to 500 fwkw, with 400+ at the wheels - and with all the gear to handle it- if i had a spare 40k - I'd say well spent. 8-)

i don't like the idea of buying someone else's projects as you have no idea what's wrong with it, cause why else would you sell something like that for $38,000?? that's what i meant by not being worth the $38,000...

What with his guage holder, looks really home made with those screws holding it on.

& whats with the straps on the driver's seat? Looks like a baby seat lol.

GT35R is on the small side for that engine..
No list of any engine mods ?? Oil pump gears etc ??
Those straps look like a four point harness ??
Agree the screws holding gauges in look bodgy BUT digi
pics can do that..
The power quoted was in horse power btw..

Pod holder is SS Inductions crap.

This guys on f**k drugs, 4.11s with a 5 speed? And a 5 speed on a boosted car? They where bad enough on the N/A's. And love all the "custom made" parts haha.

For that money i'd rather buy an XR8 and wack a Kenne Bell charger on it, 400rwtyrefryingkw with full boost kicking in at 2000revs :twisted:

At least it would be a T3650 box not just the basic T5. The posistion of the turbo interests me but, it's as if old mate went to a workshop with turbo in hand and said " just make us up a couple of manifolds and fit this up for me". A T88 or a T51R would have been a better choice for this motor for a single setup, but I think twin turbos suit the V8 better.

Borge Warner S385 or GT42 .. The T series are old tech..
Yes atleast 75mm the Gt35R is 61 mm...
It will boost early though..
Imo too much back pressure from around 4000 rpm..
Which IS bad news for engines durability..
wouldn't surprise me if i's got std reversed modified headers ??
