Why would anyone spend that kind of cash?


You can have the best turbo shops in the country build you a set up for less than half the money. Call turbo people and speak with Job spetter for that knd of cash and heell make you 1800 HP reliably.

I drag race a turbo car and its easier to make that kind of HP on pump gas than one might think. I have 4 seasons on my turbo motor at over 850 HP and I beat it to death constantly. It gets 17 MPG and runs 9's in the 1/4 mile 100% home built in my garage. Been racing it since 2003 in diffferent configurations.

Very very relaible way to make HP

i heard the 1350's are supposed to be more reliable than the 1075's...

they supposedly come with a 1-2 yr warranty and dont need to be rebuilt for 300 hours...may just be rumors.

I think the 46 AMG Cig has a set or had the validation set running in them during the Miami show.

There was a post a few weeks ago in the GD from Matt Trulio with an update on the MB 46 Cig. Said it had over 100 trouble free hours on it.
