Twin Turbo 850! http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif Yes I bet that is fast. Is it in parallel, like one small turbo feeds the bigger one and spools sooner? I guess with an inline motor thats probably the only way it could go.
You should get some pics!
Ok now I now its petty for me to pine over this, but I cant help it, it was bothering me. This post sounds like all those other fluff stories I hear about impossible things done to cars with no proof. I too will believe it when I see it. Its not important, I wont lose any sleep over it, but I still feel compelled to post. If a second turbo was added, and I would imagine it would have to be paralleled, that you would use two totally different turbos for the job, removing the stock unit. I would imagine you would go with a relativly small low pressure unit with very low lag, and a second much higher pressure unit that probably has a good amount of lag. I would assume the reason to do this is to get lots more horsepower with even less lag than stock, and smoother power delivery. To do this more than just two turbos and a a chip is needed. I could be wrong but I would thing either a custom programed chip or more likely dual boost controllers, custom fuel regulation, and lots of new piping would be needed. Some real massaging would be needed to make everything fit, but Im sure it could be done. The last and most important part is that this person would have to upgrade the innerds of the engine. I dont see how that kind of a serious upgrade could be done without changing the head, pistons, rods, etc. I would think things would break rather quickly if not, since this setup would have to be well over the 300 mark. Im sure this wasnt mentioned because this isnt the posters car and he wouldnt have known what was involved in doing it, I dont even know what would be involved, but it seems a little far fetched. Although more than proving or disproving this story, I want to see pics, I want to see this car, I want to see how it was done because it would be really amazing. Of course my question then would be how does he get the power to the road without burning rubber galore and whats the torque steer like, hehe. That would be cool though, a paralleled turbo setup, virtually no lag, gobs of power, smooth power band, that would be a real M3 killer.
Sure, there's always this 2nd turbo that comes with the T5 if you look closely. http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif
I first heard of this T5 twin turbo was from this kid from Toronto, who posted on Brickboard, he was simply misunderstanding the conecpt of turbine and compressor side of the turbo. http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif
Yeah...you make good points. I've never seen under this guys hood, i just know his family has lots o' money and thats what he told me. And his car is pretty fast. I am kind of skeptical as to whether or not its true after all that stuff you brought up. I'll ask him if i can see sometime and if it is (that would be sweet) i'd get some pictures for sure.
