    You're thinking about V-8's again. Turbo's don't/cannot use blowers like those.

    I know..
    but in that auction it states:

    Note that blower is a "hilborn" scoop and this scoop is fully functional as a "hood scoop".

    makes it sound like the blower actually works LOL

    LOL, imagine how much money it'd cost to do that conversion. Could have bought a better car like a V8 IROC Camero - WITH the radar deflecting wax job

    The scoop works, but its just that, not a blower, prolly just got pipes going straight to the airfilter etc.

    also conan, it is possible to supercharge a turbo car, even nos.

    I had a mag article, this guy did all that to a mid-90's M3 coupe, had like 700hp at the wheels. (200hp nos shot )

    all be it, the supercharger was a centrifugal type, not displacement like the big ones of drag cars etc. But you could do it, same theory how you turbo a car with carbys instead of fuel injection

    The NOS part is easy, but to combine a supercharger and turbo is a really complicated matter.

    looks like when he took the pic he opened the doors to intensionally hide the plush florescent bright yellow interior.

    yikes!!!


    the blower should have been replaced with an lcd that plays full color winamp visual plugins
