Hey guys, how about 4 turbo's? I like them because I had them on my previous car, nothing special:


but a great powerband. I want to incorporate something similar in a miata.

Thats a good thing about the Miata, plenty of room for 20 heat exchangers.

Yeah. I don't see him building a Miata 3 or 4 different ways, selling off the old new parts to fund the new new parts without actually driving or completing it!

He he.... Noble M400. Lotus doesn't have anything on this. They are also lacking about 250 hp.
I do want an Lotus Exige though. Exactly like this one......

Mushroom King, if you were my kid, I’d un-make you for being such a retard. I’d do it at night, under the cover of darkness, with no one but the alligators to bear witness. Your body would never be found, for there would be nothing to find. Carefully butchered in chunks no larger than my hand, you would simply pass through the tremendous digestive system of the great lizards, and emerge from the other end as a soft, semi-gelatinous mass devoid of recognizable bones, teeth, or any other identifiable parts.

The next morning at breakfast, as I sit hungrily devouring a stack of buckwheat pancakes, your mother would turn to me and say “Honey, have you seen our son this morning?” At that moment, I would take her. Right there on the kitchen table before the open window, I would thrust myself deeply into her, ignoring the prying eyes of our neighbors and the barking of the dogs as plates and utensils rain down from the table like Triple-A shrapnel over Dresden. Each time I exploded into her, I would pause to allow her a moment’s recomposure before beginning my tremendous assault anew with redoubled ferocity. Despite her screams and wailing, my back and shoulders raw as hamburger torn by her fingernails, I would not falter but continue to have my way like an unstoppable machine fueled by hate and lust.

Finally, after three or four hours, I would at last withdraw, not because I am exhausted, but because it is clear that she finally can stand no more of this assault and live. As the dogs lap up our sweat and bodily fluids, I would look deeply into your mother’s bloodshot eyes as she weeps with joy and ecstasy, and say “Those were some damn fine pancakes.”

JP taking over for Hustler. Classic.

Where'd Mushroom go anyway? Get back in here and take your beating like a man.

I lol'ed @ the troll.



Though speaking of twincharging, I like the idea of a hotside MP62 with a rearmount turbo.

can you name which is which?

WOAH when the **** did I only make 200 hp?

My twins do ok for what they are290rwhp @ 14psi ...sleeve bearing turbos with flat flanged downpipes (not bellmouthed or seperated WG), stock '94 1.8 engine and tube/fin intercooler. That being said, sure a proper sized single spools better and makes more power (see paul and artie). Now someone step up with some cash and let me do a sequential damnit.
