Sweet. Theres a car that can handle more power well in terms of the driveline and the chassis. Even at 6 psi I bet it hauls ***.

As requested. Pics or it didn't happen.
The first picture that was posted is of the car that is in the shop now being calibrated. These pictures are from the original car used for initial calibration.

At 6psi, what kind of power increase? And is that a conservative boost level for that engine given it's an aftermarket kid?

I could lie to you or I could confirm the horsepower numbers tomorrow at work. The initial calibration went great but they expect to make a good bit more with the new car in the shop. I know that APR's own V8 R8 made 411 AWHP or so on their Dynapack. This kit makes over 530 awhp at 6psi I believe.

6 psi is a conservative number for this motor. A built motor will be in order for any twin turbo kit owners that want to make more power.
