Turbos are superchargers of a sort just like Nitruos.




Only better in every way.

I'm speechless at the fact you've been a member of OSO for 6 years and you only have 37 posts.

True I don't post that often but I read plenty. I was aware that the new 1300 was a twin turbo drived from quadzilla. I just never saw any posts about it. Have any made it into the public? New technology, yea but if merc is bringing this to the public where does that put the other hi perf builders. no more push rods and specific valve train? According to what I did see when most big power motors are due for a rebuild this thing isn't even due for a valve adjustment. I just figured It would generate mor buzz, or I just missed the post.
