Yes, it does run. There was another vid posted on here (along with the one you just :repost:) of it running. It sounds incredible. If I get time I'll look around to find it, I know I have it saved on a backup harddrive at home somewhere.

An Octet of Turbos on an LS-1, what more could you ask for?

Oh, besides indestructable pushrods....

Only 730 Hp. WTF? A stock LS1 has like 350 hp. That's an extra 380 hp out of 8 turbos at 13 PSI.

Almost all Classics like that are meant to be cruised and shown, not raced. The car is more of a Dyno Queen as opposed to a Dragstrip Brawler. THe turbos would be more for the 'Wow!' factor than actual speed.

As for the gauges you would have to know what was going on in the engine, thus the need for all of them. In a car cruise you will be sitting in bumper to bumper traffic for close to 8 hours, the gauges would be of top priority to ensure no overheating or detonation occurs. I can garuntee you that simple problem like that would cripple that car that is no doubt a $500,000 investment.

sorry so let me get htis right;

you need a temp gauge, an oil pressure gauge, a boost gauge, a volt gauge, a fuel gauge...

what am I missing? I'm not an expert or anything so bring on the flames but to my personal tastes that car has too many gauges and in my opinion was likely built by somebody compensating for a lack of something else...

I don't flame unless it is needed. And in this case it is not needed. ;) Everyone has thier own personal tastes. But if I poured $100,000 into an engine I would want a gauge to tell me when a fly shat upon it.

Oil Pressure, Oil Temp, Coolant Temp, A/F Ratio, Boost, Fuel Pressure, Fuel Level, Tranny Temp, Volt, EGT, N2O Pressure and any other ones I could think of.

When I ran my race car, beyond a tach and speedo and the regular gauges I also had one for all my temps (oil, coolant, tranny) and my A/F Ratio. If you don't know what your engine is doing, you don't know when something is wrong.

for sure, you're right man. I should think before I type next time.

The only question here is why 8 turbos? Why not 10 or 12? :hehe:

One turbo per cylinder I would guess.

It's pretty for sure.. but it is not a dyno queen by any means.. 8 turbos.. all that work up and only 13PSI? Only 700hp? Weak.

The car looks really nice though..

this is such a repost.. this might be older than the DSM Crank walk picture. Its always interesting to see this though. So much fab was done on this car but only 700hp? I could only imagine the lag.
