Holy crap. 8x turbo on an LS1 stuck in a 57 chev. Be sure to watch the video, I was waiting for something to blow towards the end but it stayed in tact.

Re: Inciner8or

****, most turbos ive ever seen. Probably unneccessary though, im sure twins would do the job. But then again, being able to tell people you have an EIGHT turbo car is worth it!

Insane Ls1 : 8 x turbo's

While checking the hideous Monaro meets Chevelle abortion of a car, there was a link posted to the Lateral-G site. Whilst the Chevelle/monaro was a trainwreck this thing here below looked insane under the bonnet.

Check out the 8 turbo's :

Actually, the 8 turbos would minimise turbo lag if set up correctly. Whole point of running multiple turbos is to increase response.

But like Mr Sparkle said, totally unnecessary. 2 turbos would more than do the job

Re: Insane Ls1 : 8 x turbo's

4 turbos would probably be the ideal number for a large v8, any more and you're just wasting time and money.....
