Rods, Boss 290 Has Twin Turbo's

Hello, i was talking to Rod on Saturday morning and the Twin Turbo's on his Boss powered Pursiut has become a reality, if your in Melbourne look out for this Citric torque monster, he drove it Saturday Morning and says the whole instalation looks clean and neat and under the bonnet look like a factory fit.
i cant post a link to the pictures but i know Rod has some of his own.
i will ask Rod to post some pictures sometime Monday.

THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE LEGEND THE GT is back

Re: Rods, Boss 290 Has Twin Turbo's

Will this void the factory warranty ?
The setup looks great, may we enquire on cost of the setup and see some dyno graphs ?
Can't wait to see it run @ Calder

thanks Alex
the credit is all to A.P.S. they have turned this lard arse truck into one tuff towtruck

it was built for a purpose & that purpose is to tow our trailor but once sorted we may give it a push down the blacktop just for old time sake

Mark & I gave it a little squirt on the weekend but the road must have been wet ( it felt like it anyway ) & i wouldnt play ball on a wet road

there is no way this docile little boss will play on stock tyres unless you want to run a burnout comp

carnt wait to hook up the trailor & go playing

Peter being Peter ( read very fussy bugger ) wants to iron out a few little bugs before we get to play, ( i belive he wants to iron them out with rapid velocity & the windscreen )

but on a serious note there is still more to be done before the project is completed & we move on to part 2

thanks again to Peter, David, Robert, Rainer & Staff at A.P.S. on enother well done project

regards
rod
