    fangs? who has fangs? LOL


    With the way those turbos spool up so late in the power band its about as good as racing a big single turbo supra around the roadcourse. Lots of lag followed by instant power and tire frying. Ive heard stories comparing it to balancing an elephant on a bowling ball.

    Id say two smaller units and about 400 less hp and that car would be a beast on a roadcourse.

    The fangs refer to those who like to rape customers, and I wasnt refering to you. Yes a smaller turbo like a gt35r or a gt40 would have been alittle better for that motor. The Gt40r would be awesome on the s38 motor, or even a GT42r.

    I always thought about boosting an S38. But my pockets aren't that deep.

    So the M30 it will be. Can I get some M30 love??

    At some point in my life I will build an S38 turbo, it is a must.

    What do you mean you don't understand why they put them into E30's?

    What do you mean you don't understand why they put them into E30's?
    Unless you build a car strictly for drag,the E30 cant handle it.I would'nt feel the need to
    have a lightweight car with 1000hp(no traction).1000hp can get you quickly fast...kind of 200mph+...
    I would use another platform for theses speeds.Also,as much as I love and respect E30s,it lack
    originatity.1000hp S38 could be nice in a brown E23,or a Bavaria,or my E9CS....
