Re: Best Tuner Car ????

haha i wont complain .. well anyway yes the engine will have to have new internals and a small twin turbo or the aps single turbo kit and whatever is needed to support the power (like you said exhausts fuel injection, etc etc).. what is the deal with the twin turbo.. i have heard that it creates better spool up but is that entirely true i mean can i get away with a quicker spooling single turbo??

Last time I checked the APS system was also a twin turbo kit. I don't know how it performs, but I imagine it's pretty peaky. I'd go with the Greddy twin turbo kit, JWT twin turbo kit, or a Stillen supercharger. Or, if you had the extra money, I'd build a high compression NA motor with Cosworth internals. I don't know how it would perform, but the concept always sounded really cool to me.
