This isn't a racing story, I did not race this car, but I did see it in front of my school and I did see it take off...
Just wondering if this is in any way possible. I spoke to this kid (20 year old owner) about his car. He told me its a 98 S70 R with a twin turbo.
I agreed with him because I didn't have time to argue with him, but I was just wondering how you'd "twin" turbo a 5 cylinder in order to get over 350hp :S

Id like to add that on take off, the car was disgusting. Engine was knocking, puffing black/blue smoke.

I have a kijiji link to his car, apparently its for sale now.

Sounds like he is smoking rocks and your getting a buzz from the second hand smoke :D. A Turbonator and a 16T does not qualify for a twin turbo setup. I am willing to bet all the Chins in a chinese phonebook the car has one turbo, wont break 250 whp, and the kid is a "Hannah Montana" fan.
Contact me for turbos, turbo parts and rebuild kits

Given his poor use of the English language I am pretty sure he isn't smart enough to pull off a twin turbo setup. No chip will give you 390 hp and everything about that car looks stock.

Of course, if he has an iRoll chip in it, then I am totally wrong and it is a monster! :P

Hahaha, twin turbo 5 cyl. On a related note, I thought about making a twin-scroll manifold for about 2 minutes. Then realized that it would have to be 3+2 into the collector, which means those 3 cylinders will have higher back-pressure than the other two :arob:

So set something straight here - are there really only 53,800 KM on that car or did he forget to put a 1 or a 2 in front of it?

it doesnt say in that ad that its twin turbo. But god made an exception for this car to allow it to make 390hp!

Same with the AWD... if you don't actually own one, or never have, or plan to do so, then shut your pie hole.
