    • Watch an Audi B5 S4 with the USP Motorsports Tial 605 Twin Turbo kit and about 500 wheel horsepower get smoked by an LS1 swap Nissan 240SX

      The B5 S4 in this video has upgraded Tial 605 twin turbos courtesy of USP Motorsports. It also features a built head and is a 2.8 liter stroker motor. On 25 psi of boost it is said to be good for about 500 horsepower at the wheels. The Nissan 240SX it runs is all motor with an LS6 manifold, ported throttle body, and built tranny. The car is also much lighter than the B5 S4 and the power to weight ratio difference shows clearly in the video.


      Even though the all motor LS1 has less power it is able to beat the B5 S4 from a stop and from a roll. It looks like the S4 suffers from quite a bit of lag as the 240SX seems to get the jump every time. The only close race is from a stop but the 240SX still quickly pulls past even with the S4's all wheel drive advantage. Impressive 240SX, video below.

        Audi looks like it had terrible turbo lag. Also looked like it needed a serious driver mod with those granny shifts. 240sx looked fast as hell.

        The 240 is gutted. Easy 2500 lbs wet. Maybe less if they went big on the gut job. Cheap and reliable track platform for sure. Paired with an LS1 with a built auto is certainly unique.

        If we get the Nissan back to its curb weight and.... the Audi still loses! Click here to enlarge

        It is all relative.

        The 240x is at or near 1,000 lbs lighter than the chubby S4.

        I knew it. I've played with this chassis before (240). I know how light they are without any work. Fabulous starting platform. With a day of work you can have the car at 2500lbs with ease....

        2900 lbs wet 240sx versus a 4400+ lb wet S4. Put the stock motor back in (or 500lbs of ballast) and you have a race.

        No amount of driving will remove the 1,500 lb advantage the 240 has.

        The primary advantage of the 240sx platform is weight, RWD and ease of swaps.

        I still love the chassis, but you are REALLY downplaying the weight factor.

        At the end of the day, hero dynos are great, Lsx swaps are neat.... but Newton's Laws reigns supreme.

        F = M*A.

        M is a $#@! to get around. Period.

        He should know better. He's going to get smoked regardless of what he does.

        What does the 240 run in the 1/4 with the Lsx? Do you have any slips? I've always seen the 240's with big turbos. An Lsx would be a kick in the pants and I would be confident in beating the piss out of it daily.

        the 240 should be around 10.50 in the 1/4..

        SO BADASS! I've been a long time Nissan guy and LOVE 240s. I'd love to have an LSX swapped 240. 10.5 would be so sick in that. None of the FI BS either.

        Just read the comments. Pretty funny stuff. It's true what the one guy said about the camera car (HR 350Z FBO) would of been a better race for the Audi. Seemed to me that the 350Z kept up with that audi pretty well for being all motor. I expected those results from the 240sx with an LS1 swap, but the shocker was the camera car. LOL! Not at all impressed by the audi at all.
