Looks great. I love it :D

Pretty ordinary power figures. 730hp @ 5800rpm. Torque is interesting - 962nM @ 5000rpm.

Compare it to the likes of the Nismo build of the XR6T engine. 1000HP out of a 4L with 1 turbo.

Yeah cant help but feel they're holidng back. I'm no expert but im sure you could produce more than 13.5psi with 8 turbos. Spose it takes a fair bit of flow to compress all the air in that plumbing.

Also noted they had GM heads on there and GM transmission.

It does look cool, all for show. I dont think maximum power output was the key consideration.

Very true. At the end of the day, I have no doubt the thing would move along at a reasonable pace ;)

I'd love to hear it overtaking me on the street.

I'd imagine it to have plenty of lag, which would explain the HP it produced. Theyre not the smallest of turbos so would need the air flow of perhaps a 2lt motor to spool each turbo... a 5.7lt diveded into 8 dosnt produce a great deal of airflow at low rpm

That was my concern, too little exhaust gas for that many turbos.

8 Turbos - wank factor of 10. It shows what it really is - a show car. Much the same as Howard Astill underdriving his supercharger on the XA coupe so it made virtually no boost....
