that's a good point. The car will be ripped apart. I don't think the stock rear end could handle 1200 horses.

I thought two smaller turbos generally spooled faster than one large turbo. I wouldn't think it would be much of an issue on this V8 anyway. Turbo lag is kind of a thing of the past no?

I believe with the twin turbo set up you have one smaller turbo to help spooling...small one comes on fast then the larger carries it to top end...no?

Either way that's an awesome set and I hope the ones built actually see the road and track and aren't just dyno queens!

Question regarding Nickey: who is running the dealership today, and what are its current roots back to the Nickey dealerships of the 60's? If some of the same people are involved, then I'm all for it; if it was sold to some unrelated interest that is just using the name for marketing, then screw it! The original Nickey was about serious performance for the sake of performance. If I can believe the same is true today and it's not just sales hype, I'm in.

I want mine to be drivable in the city. 400+ is very drivable....

1,200 HP is Drivaeable, but DAMN! the idea you can smoke the tires from 0-100 is something that would be hard to fight. Not to mention, the fact you can accelerate so damn fast, that Johnny Law would miss you.

I admit, it would be fun, but take work to control your urges.
