Can't wait to see it run @ Calder

"WARRANTY" = guarantee given to the buyer of an article

IE: warranty from Ford = you will enjoy your car

IE: warranty from A.P.S. = you will enjoy your car

Guess the warranty is good

as for cost's the construction is not complete so its not possiable to price as yet, check with A.P.S. once the project is completed & costing sorted

run at Calder never never never Ok maybe once

alright twice

so maybe its three times

who knows

Re: Rods, Boss 290 Has Twin Turbo's

Great news fellas. Look forward to some times and some dyno graphs to show the real power of the boss engines.

When you think about it the stock XR6 engine makes around 130rwkw yet with an aps phase III it and a turbo it makes 330rwkw.

Now the stock Boss makes around 210rwkw. With twin turbos what will it make???? 400+rwkw

I believe the LS1 made 385rwkw with the APS twin turbo kit, so as long as this goes 386 everything will be peachy :)

yes it would be great to run a 10 in it but its not built for that, i actually want to use it for towing my trailor & am more than happy with the way it goes

all it really needs is for some way to stop it turning the tyres at 110 Kmh on the freeway if you put you foot into it

maybe we should have a little play with the rev limiter & limit it to 3500 Rpm add to that a tub full of sand & maybe some "for those that are old enough to remember" standard petrol

what do you think
