This is one of those cases where just because you can....well you know the rest.

Well, I have some words: Why in the name of Gottlieb Daimler would you spend ten grand on that work of art of an engine and stick carburetors on it?

Turbo's that big running on 2 cylinders each must take an eternity to spool...

I guess it doesn't say that it is quick... just that it is a "very fast car in seconds".

Am I the only one who is wondering where the "front mounted radiator" is?

I'm hoping that Buick Century in the background is included, so I'll have a reliable way to get to work when this thing blows the eff up.

Yeah, the wheels are turrible.

Notice the PA plates. A lot of our cars have over 2000hp, not really that uncommon here in the Keystone State.

I seriously doubt that thing makes near the power the owner thinks it does. With no dyno testing mentioned and no details on the engine internals I have a feeling its wishful thinking lol.

If he says 2,200hp - he means at the flywheel. I would estimate it only does 1,850hp at the rear wheels.

What's hard to believe?

yeah bro:
the bbc makes like 800hp for sure. I saw it on ls1tech so it is legit. 10lbs of booooosts through each of the turboats makes for 400 hp moar. 1200 horsepowers!
