yeah, that's pretty ridiculous. i like how you can tell how much throttle feathering is necessary by how often it gets a lil squirrely when he (she?) is on it in any sort of turn...

A guy locally had a Supercharged V8 (Rustang Cobra engine) with a 200 shot of NOS. That car was retarded. Torque FTMFW!

I guess you've not heard any of the newer LS-motors (or the incredible LS7, for that matter) at full wail?

Or Ford's current crop of supercharged DOHC motors?

yeah i was waiting for it to catch something. I guess it was one of those "just because" builds, a much more simply modded ls1 can be just as fast, most likely a bunch lighter and easier to drive without the turbos to worry about.

That Lexus V8 sounds nothing like an F1 engine. Matter of fact, there is nothing I've heard that matches that sound (and yes, I've been to a couple F1 races).

I'd drive that car in a heartbeat though! Anyone have a link to pics of the build?

I think it'd be cool if someone did the LSx swap and used a remote turbo..

I have to stand or I can't shoot it in your mouth. If you talk **** to me again, I'm not going to put any water in your dish.
