Even with some really meaty tires, youd still need a trunk full of bodies to put any power down. Even then you would still probably smoke the tires off.

can you name which is which?

Really scott? That's the best you could do? Ida chose these comparisons. 2 car's with perfectly sized single turbo systems vs 1 twin turbo setup. All same displacement motors.

So if you did a useless swap on an SC (the stock 2jz would have been sufficient if you weren't going much over 400hp) and you still didn't put twins on a motor that is basically balanced as two three cylinders explosion welded together, then wtf makes you think it's a good idea to put twins on a four cylinder?

I have a project Miata that will be running 1 Stirling engine per wheel. Runs on my fart. May prove to be more costly than gasoline though, since Taco Bell ends up costing me nearly $10 every time I eat there.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Did he just snag that photo off a website? Hey Mushroom King, let's see a link to the build of your Lexus.
