It would be faster than a Corvair.

well, what size turbos? Where's hte s/c in the mix? I would say that setup would net in the neighborhood of 6 gigawatts worth of power through the flux capacitor. So you should be able to see 88mph in -2 seconds flat.

Yea, I'm not sure what's up with the OP. He's posting up threads like there's no tomorrow. I'd rather not ban if he's just frisky.

I'm starting to think he is one of those marketing people sent to infiltrate message boards. Soon we should start seeing "stealth" posts to products or other sites....
