    Interesting,. I'll admit for 32 grand it probably should look a lot better than that lol. Factoring about four grand in parts, that means $28,000 / 85 bucks an hour meant they spent 330 hrs developing this. The other thread on here where the guy puts a turbo on the yellow spider, seems like he whipped that out in less than a week and it looks a lot better than this.

    either way, it's a properly turbocharged one of these cars you really need to get dished pistons and lower the compression. There's no way you can safely for optimally run boost on a high compression motor like ours unless you're pumping in race gas

    You can with low boost. Plenty of cars have aftermarket kits, typically about 6 pounds. If one wants to run 20 pounds boost then yes you'll need a new bottom end.

    If someone wants a twin turbo V8 sports car why not just get a Mclaren MP4

    No dyne sheet or video of the car running the system? Seems like something any of us would want to see if we were going to buy.

    Without the ECUs, a turn key tune, and specs on the compression of the motor it came from I wouldn't even consider it.
    That's can be a lot more then 4 grand in parts. Depends on the turbos.

    Felix Medina (pictured in the first photo I posted) twin-turboed a second F355 Challenge with twin intakes mounted on the rear deck. Both were very fast. I don't remember their dyno numbers.

    well for starters, it's a McLaren, and an automatic. And it's not a Ferrari.
