The 900 HP Heffner Twin Turbo Lamborghini LP-560 -- TUNED
/Tuned goes to Sarasota to visit Heffner Performance, the first company to ever build a twin-turbo kit for the Lamborghini Gallardo. In a barely marked, unassuming suburban shop, Jason Heffner turns out some of the tuning world's craziest creations. His twin-turbo Lamborghini LP-560 seems so right, however, that we feel it should be standard equipment from the factory.

Summer's car "rebuild".
Summer's 16th birthday present, 78 Mustang II Coupe.
She likes old cars, we didn't want anything with HP as a first car, plus not a "big" car either with C pillar blind spot. That little Mustang was about the only choice to find something dirt cheap, fixable and looks classic.
Nothing too fancy in the refreshing, this car will end up on a highschool parking lot.
Rebuild the little 2.3L engine, great on gas, 28-30 MPG on the highway. Block 60 over.
For maximum grip upgraded the 13" to Front 205/55R15, Rear 215/60R15 sitting on Basset D hole Wheels.
Primer sealer/filler/urethane paint is PPG. Yellow is 2010 Camaro single stage urethane. Clear coat is "Montana".
Muffler is Flomaster Super 44, no drone sounds ok, pretty quiet.
Music : The Crystal Method, High Roller - Album" Vegas".

Cult of The Turbo ★ Ferrari F40 vs. Porsche GT2 RS vs. Noble M600 vs. Jaguar XJ220 [EVO TV] [HD] turbo Engines: Their legacy & ongoing refinement in some of the very best cars on the road... or track.
The Ferrari F40, the first 200mph & still perhaps the greatest ever Supercar for it's raw, purposeful & meteoric performance, built nearly a quarter of a century ago; incredible legacy, & still considered Ferrari's greatest ever creation, for very good reason. When the real electronic age is upon us, cars like the F40 will always speak volumes for what petrol cars truly meant in the growth of an industry & procession of engineering.
The Porsche GT2 RS, the latest marque of this incredible Carrera, top of the fleet, and blistering in all aspects. The power it puts out, with the artistic but unforgiving handling still asks today how Porsche have managed to take the rear-engined format THIS far, let alone 610hp from a Flat-6 as standard! 170hp+ more than from their GT3 RS. There's never been anything like an extreme "turbo'd" Porsche.
Noble have always built amazing cars given their bearing against the big manufacturers. But having done so well with their small cut they've been able to build a car from the ground up. Twin-turbocharged V8 engine built in house has given them a base never previously used, having V6 TT Ford Duratec engines in their former models. All their chassis prowess is on display as they've built a genuine supercar, able to compete with their targets & having a nice price advantage on them too.
The mercurial Jaguar XJ220; British supercars are usually lead via Aston Martin who hold most of the acclaim, but Britains greatest contribution could well be the XJ220. An incredible project at the time, extracting immense power & speed from an already reknowned V6 [Metro 6R4 Rally Car] with the aid of 2 turbochargers, and at the time having the fastest production car on Earth. Definitely a cult favourite and a car for the ages in all aspects of what makes a car memorable; the styling alone still seems post-modern against the sleek machines of today.
