      2010 GT500
      Hellion "Hellraiser" twin turbo/compound boost kit
      Twin 61mm ball bearing Turbonetics turbos
      737rwhp/776rwtq on 93 octane

      Flew down to Nashville, TN yesterday morning to pick this up, and drove it back yesterday. Aside from all of the cuts and scrapes I received from the hard, sharp interior, and the pains in my lower back from the horse cart rear axle, the car is awesome. The power is unbelievable, the power band starts instantly and never drops. The sound of the turbos spooling, the blower whining, and the blow off valve, on top of the already amazing sounding 5.4 makes for one of the craziest sounding cars I've ever heard.




      A common sight on the trip back:

      Is it really possible to run a supercharger and twin turbos without something exploding?

      We'll find out on his dime. Must sound like war breaking out. Can probably do a burnout from gas station to gas station.
