Here's a shot of Jay Leno's 1,000 HP Olds Toronado (1966 I think).

It's a twin turbo with all kinds of goodies attached. Next mod planned is water and alcohol injection so that the car doesn't have to run on racing fuel...must be mighty high compression or must get mighty hot in there.

How'd they get 1,000 HP into a FWD car without driving around in circles from torque steer?

Simple...when you have Jay's budget...use a Corvette C5 chassis and converted it into a RWD!

  • Actually, to get max horsepower, you usually lower the compression and crank up the boost.

    I know that's why I was wondering if they didn't "do the math" quite right when they built the engine. Getting proper compression ratios is quite a science.

    Twin turbos are a good idea on large displacement engines, work really well and a nifty solution.

    Use this script but I will substitute a parens ) for a > so that it doesn't actually "fire".

    (img src="URL OF PHOTO")

    Be sure to have the space between img and src and be sure to spell src correctly, which stands for "source" I believe.

    Also don't try to load photos that are HUGE on your host page, because they will be HUGE on our website page and skew the whole text (pageview)

    You need a place to host it, like photobucket.com. Here's a recent thread about the process:

  • Smooth ride! I would send some of my stang but It was last painted before I got it and that's been over 10yr's. It's maroon w/white top and ratty looking turbine wheels. That will go perfect with the sleeper look I want if I can find good tires to hook on stock wheels.At least it has a set of nitto's , 4 wheel disc's, slick suspension ,flowmaster's and a tricked out AOD tranny.

    Hemi Hype ain't what it used to be so check out The Muscle Car for Mom instead. (Inside Line)

    Looks like that wagon would make a nice stealth vehicle.

    There were only 5 of these 350Z Type-E's produced in Japan.

    However one can still attain the body styling and performance of one, or get the Ings+1 kit and with a Skyline RB25DET NEO engine and put in a high end turbocharger to pump out at least 500HP:

    A WALD S600. The kit consists of front bumper spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper spoiler, decklid spoiler, exhaust. We also installed custom entrace lights, 6 under the side skirts and 3 under the rear bumper. We had to do a lot of work to get the lines in the bumpers to look factory, but hard work pays off in the end. The car also has the Carlsson front mesh in the bumper, has Lorinser lowering kit, and the 20" Kahn wheels. It looks good, not too much but enough to know it isnt stock. Anways, here it is">. Designo Mystic White.
