I'm not saying this with all turbo engines, but most of the ones I have seen have a fat torque curve. Some of the numbers are huge down in the 2500-4000 rpm range. Man I think those engines could put a smile on my face!!!

For sure 8000RPM's......this motor is build on a completely different tech then anything that is out there now.....it's really a completely different level to say the least....so far another sister set of these that are installed have over 85 hours on them and they are still running strong....not even a spark plug change ! And by the way...those motors are under 89dbl.....say goodbye to all the cops and their noise meter hassles......

Here is an EFI twin turbo motor that looks roughly the same but must have different (TECH). I've had this pic for four years.

I really appreciate how Tommy and his customers are willing to try new things. The engines in the Apache are 1200 HP and the speed is 110++ mph. The 43 Nortech will get the same engines and I suspect speeds of 160++ mph. Prop and gear selection for the extra 50 mph is where it gets interesting and you need good engine management.

Hi Nobody:

I like how you did the throttle bodies; the lower position of the turbo made that possible. But I would like to see you using a much bigger intercooler like the one on our twin centrifugal setup that you saw at LOTO last year. It's available for all the turbo guys looking for this much power, with a modified Dart tunnel ram intake.

Thanks,

Tom
