I can hear it now from the owner of this car:

"2 Turbos? That's it?! My LS1 is packing 8!"

That is insane. What is that, a turbo for each cylinder? And what kind of car is that, a '57 Chevy? Man, you don't need a mechanic for that thing, you need a plumber! Very cool.

Quote from that site:

Hp/Tq numbers coming after its final tune. Currently, it's well over 800hp with a very conservative tune!!

800hp? Wth? There are guys over at LS1tech that are doing ~600 with a procharger and a few other small things. I would think after all that you'd be looking at at LEAST 1000hp. Even that's kind of wimpy. That would be impressive at 2000hp, 800 is kind of a let down... :confused:

I think I have a vid somewhere of a guy on the dyno with a twin turbo GN doing ~1200hp.

Actually i don't think it would get that much power at all. A turbo needs the back pressure of the exhaust to make its power. While normally there is a lot of backpressure for one or 2 turbos to work i don't see much back pressure left over for 8 seperate connections. Infact with all of that hardware i could see the car weighing well over 4000 pounds. Thats just too much pipping for one car. I think a cooler approach, i know this is LS1gto.com, but i have seen an eagle talon with 2 engines in it. Both turbo'd and producing close to 1000 HP. I can imagine that much power in such a small car.

They may have to make better tires and suspension tuning just for that car. :)
Also, it should be making at least 1500 hp + on a conservative tune.

One big unit would work better then a system like that ...lol...not to mention, the front end probably weighs a ton with all the piping, and turbos.

Yeah Chris Chow's car is a V8. The motor is out of Duttweiler's car and has been de-tuned for Chris's car. We are designing a twin system for the GTO's now that will use twin GT32's which will be good for 850-900rwhp. Should be a fun ride....

Dare I ask what has to happen to keep the rest of the car from falling apart with that much RWHP?
