1) 500whp on 2 tiny ass turbos. TINY cost reasons lol1. why would you buy a twin turbo kit for a 5.0 to make 500whp? not only is it not cost effective but it's asking for a headache....you put a blower on it and run like 7-10 psi on it and make 600 whp on a built motor and call it day....you just can't buy a tt kit and slap it on there...the only time you start talking twin turbo is when you start wanting 800-1200 streetable hp on a fully crazy built motor....
2. what's wrong with domestics....they're building faster more efficient cars than the "import" companies.....and the import companies now build most of their cars here there fore making them domestic :lmao
3. it's a simple car to make fast for cheap....why are we listing crazy setups that will put you in the hole about another 15000 dollars just to right?
do heads, cam, breather mods, rear-end, and spray and you're looking at 11's......throw a blower on it for cheap and make like 600hp and call it a day
1) 500whp on 2 tiny ass turbos. TINY cost reasons lol
2) Im talking older domestics. I cant and wont afford anything newer then 2000 unless its a fucking daewoo or some shit
3) damn right its simple. aftermarket rods, pistons, bearings, and the explorer heads will easily allow 400whp+ all motor
nobody in the v8 community would think you were cool with a twin turbo kit unless you were making 900+hp for the simple fact that a centrifugal supercharger would give you power at 7K plus...but why power up there considering they don't even rev past that....v8's don't make power at 2-3k rpms....they making form like 1500 rpms to near redline.......and you don't need to rev stupid high because you have a broader powerband...you just augment your gears...it's the same reason hondas run stupid close gearing...they make no usuable power to you need shorter gears to make up for it.................rods as in connecting rods, not pushrods
just so it can take any extra abuse
and twin turbo, its about bragging rights and a v8 that actually makes torque while spinning high rpms, like 7k+, not just 2-3k rpms
i'm hoping for 14's for the accord next year and it be auto as well, but bitch better quit spending my money. but the track we have here is questionable to say the least. even a guy with a beefed up fox body with shit loads invested should be running high 13's no doubt (seen a similar setup run 13 and halfs)couldn't run faster than 15.6 because one he don't know how to drive, his starts were awful and two they don't maintain the track. it looks like a roller skating rink floor near the starting line.so can I, and I have 4 dr's and an auto tragic, :lol
I think I could even get high 14's if the track conditions are better and I get more than 2 runs in, lol
you really have no idea what you are talking about do you? 90% of v8 guys do a rear end, heads, breathers and spray.....then they are in the 11's or faster....it doesn't take much...you are being ignorant again. not all v8 guys like cheap. lots of them like to show off
personally Id rather see 600whp form a twin setup then a single setup. it will be faster in every way over the single setup.
v8 guys almost NEVER go for the cheapest possible route.
also, if I see a twin setup I think its cool as shit, even if its only making 100 over stock. its called a challeneg, and the guy beat it if its running and in front of me lol
plus, all he needs to do in teh future is bolt bigger turbos and tune it or adjsut carbs, depending on how hes running it
you gotta remember, one bank of 4 cylinders is still 2.5 liters, MUCH more capable then some dinky honda 4 banger. now if they have turbso to make a honda responsive and yet reach 230whp, like a GTI turbio, then a pair of them would only serve to kick some serious ass, especially since the v8 has the grunt of another bank of cylinders helping to spin it.
so what if it runs teh turbos out of breath around 5k or so rpms, it will still be funner then hell to drive
tell me you wouldnt turn down a chance to drive a twin turbo v8, or even a twin turbo v6
LOL @ rear end and breathing mods putting it into the 11s
maybe for a mustang. not so for other v8 cars
try doing that in an old school chevelle ss. 2.73 rear, headers, and no air filter still leave you in the high 12s.
you still fail to convince me v8 motors are so great
find me 5 v8 vehicles at least one being a truck, made in teh alst 15 years that reacts this well to bolt ons (as you made an example of)
no you just don't read very well i said from the start...breather mods and rear end with heads will put you in the 12's and with spray you're looking at 11's easily.......all of the performance v8's from the past 20 years....react similary....why do you think none of the v8 guys really cared when honda guys finally broke into the single digits......because a challenge for the v8's was getting to the 7's and 8's...honda guys rave about low 15's.....or the fact that a 6000 dollar k20 swap will make another 20whp with breather mods and a reflash.........fuck v8 guys were like for 6000 dollars i'll make 450whp all motor and that's on old ass pushrod iron block motors hehe. or you can buy a turnkey crate engine making 700 hp and drop it into your car and drive off into the sunset....and now that the new v8's are getting the same gas mileage as todays 4 cylinders on the highway. i just sit back and laugh at b16 punks who brag about vtec and racing parked carsa 71 chevelle with the factory big ass 454 weighed 4250 pounds with my dad in teh driver seat at a weigh station
stock was in the 12s or 13s.
new camaro makes that much power with a reflash becasue it is seriously detuned factory for emission. look at the early/mid 90s corvettes. 100+hp gain with a chip and headers
I over read spray, sorry. spray is a form of forced induction and we were talking about breather mods
take motor out put into rx-7 or 240....handles like sex now.../threadv8's in general are the easiest way to go fast for cheap.
I've been toying with the idea of maybe picking up one of my friend dan's MOPAR's since he's possibly thinking of selling? God 4-500hp close to stock, and the torque!! The cars run like 13-12's stock all day long.
They just handle like beached whales tho, haha
