My turbo Laser against my turbo 1992 ford festiva. Both cars running the same motor, although the lasers has been built. As an idea of how quick the two cars are, the laser was Dynoed at 249.5 fwhp ( around 180fwkw's) and 360nm so was pretty proud of the festiva. Since then the festiva has been Boosted up from 10psi to 15 psi so yeah.

Powercruise 32 Faraone Engines VH Charger
Powercruise is the perfect way for John Faraone from Faraone Engines to give the motorsport enthusiast a close-up look at the flagship 2500HP Monster built by John's very own hands .
Many people were taken for a few laps of Wanneroo race circuit where in a few areas John could give them a small taste of what the 472ci Twin turbo Methanol Injected Big Block could offer.

Powercruise 32 (2011) Terminator vs AluminaTTor showdown
A couple of runs of the two builds side by side. ... both making 700rwhp and both around 1750kg in kerbweight.
The twin turbo FG's lack of traction and torque off the line means it just gets hosed in the first pass by the R888 equipped twin-screw AU.
In the second pass another certain victory was on the cards for the AU but due to an "alledged missed gear" the FG comes away with a cheap win
Some specs on the two cars:
5.0L Boss50 32V, Kenne Bell 2.8HLC with 20psi Boost, E85 fuel, PPG T56 dogbox, 35 spline 9" with 4.11 ratio, Ford GT Supercar wheels with 295/30/19 Toyo R888 tyres.
4.6L Aluminator engine with FGT heads, FR500C intake, twin GT35R at 20psi Boost, 98 octane pump fuel, Rebuilt ZF 6 speed automatic with 3000rpm stall, factory IRS, 18x9.5" Rays wheels with 265/35/18" Toyo R1R tyres
