      very nice, with both turbos and a supercharger, i though one would be well into the 8-900 range, with a serious tune, and maybe race gas

      As it sits, the car would have no problems laying down a 4 digit dyno on pump gas and maybe some meth, but what's the point? It has a very safe, conservative tune on it right now, and is dangerous enough as is - and I don't need to make a habit out of getting the attention of local law enforcement.

      Awesome! I am frankly amazed that this setup even works to begin with with so little modification. But woa! It sure is awesome!

      I think this earns one huge hole punch on your man card.

      I'm working right now to have Jon Lund tune the car, and then I'm just going to enjoy it. Maybe some MT ET Street's for the rear to help with traction issues.

      and I can't see the tires lasting very long at all with a more aggressive setup.

      I have a new favourite car in TCL. I can't tell you what the old one was, cause I don't know, but this one has replaced it.

      The best part is that it is so much better in person. The turbo spool and blow off valve are so unbelievably loud, it is truly just insane. Everything about the car is perfectly menacing.

      Since you live in VA, you should go check out the aviation museum that is right outside of VA Beach. The owner of the museum is super cool and they are very accommodating for requests. If you get a group of buddies together and ask for them to pull out their P-51 Mustang so you can take pictures with your cars next to it usually they will oblige. Here's a link to the museum.

      Here's my 08 next to the Mustang.

      Not a fan of buying mechanically-modded cars(especially the engine).

      I prefer to do the modding myself.

      Seems like a reliability nightmare, TBH.

      The motor and drivetrain in this car are bulletproof, and the turbo kit is beyond simple. The install was done by a reputable shop, and was featured in PowerBlock magazine. I could just read through the article, look at the pictures, and feel like I did the install myself.

      Even in a crappy, dimly-lit, cellphone picture this thing is mean. Don't get mad at me for posting the pic you sent me Danny....I'm just jealous.
