8 turbos and all the piping? He's got the money for sure.

Talking Re: New Hi Perf Engine..Twin turbo HA! Try one per cylinder!

Same mentality as putting 10 outboards in a row on the back of a boat. Yea it will work and draw attention. Nothing like re-inventing the wheel. But hey, if he is doing it for kicks then who cares! Wonder if State Farm will insure it? My guess is that the force of exhaust gas will not be suitable to drive all these turbos lined up in serial sequence. It's like wiring light bulbs in series order the further down the row you go the dimmer the bulbs get. Maybe a parallel diagram would help but good luck. Maybe adding a blower can get the engine to put out enough exhaust gas pressure to power the turbos to add to the boost of the blowers to run what looks like a small block. That thing is likely to give "rednecks" a bad name!

Sounds and looks cool for a SHOW car ..... Don't think it will work well though . Obviously not intended to if you look at those little rear tires !

Looks like parallel to me... sorta.

He'd be better off with each little turbo mounted as close to an exhaust valve as possible...

Man they have some time into that. Should look insane for what looks to be a show car. I am sure that it will draw a lot of attention at shows. I bet we will see this thing on TV soon.
