Twin turbo lambo??

I think I need to go clean myself up real quick.

Looks like you'll be enjoying your car in no time.

I get the point of that but at the same time I don't get the point of that. It's not got infinite grip so infinite power doesn't buy you very much. Adding twin turbos to a gallardo I would wager would make it slower 0-60 and 0-100. I can't see it putting all that power down.

Reminds me of the 1000rwhp porsche they made for a year or two. Was way slower than the stock 911 turbo to 100mph. Course, it was WAAAAY faster from 100-200 but really? On public roads?

im not being mean or anything just curious! just a cross over pipe? no ported manifolds to match or UP to match? everything needs done so the hole system flows right.

personally id hold off on the tune until you buy thoughs two parts. if you buy later it would be most wise to get retuned again which is just more money.

going strictly off what my tuner said, he said it is restrictive enough for only this part to be beneficial. now if thats true or not i dont know because im going off of his words, but hes been doing it for a long time now so i trust his judgement

the mouth is alot bigger, not to mention it pipe. its also one of the problems we had. on the 09 when you order the down pipe there's also a test pipe you have to get or you'll have about 2 foot of piping missing, they didnt send that. so we had to go to a shop and get it made. subarus are VERy loud when the exhaust stops at the down pipe lol

I thought that dp looked short lol.

Yes, the crosspipe by itself will help, but not nearly as much as running the full PnP setup.. We'll have to compare spool once you get your numbers... I hit 18.5 psi by 3400 rpm's and I have the full PnP and Crosspipe from GrimmSpeed.

i see. it would be cool to show people the now and then do manifolds and UP later and see the power difference. if he tunes it will cost more. but if he doesnt have too it should only cost $50 to do 3 pulls with no tune to see and before and after.

i did this for people with a cat and then without a cat. with no changing the car made 7 more HP and zero TQ but i got to the TQ number 600-700 RPM faster which was nice.

Here's a twin turbo lamborghini pulling the front wheels off the ground and running 9s. It looks like it's in street trim too. Prepare to wet yourself.

I had a feeling that "well known Lamb shop" was Underground Racing. There stuff is just plain ridiculous. I wasted an entire afternoon just watching their videos one day.

yes please

Wow, consider me impressed. I mean you can tell he's totally babying it in first but he's actually able to put power down in second which I was surprised to see. He goes through third which I know redlines at some ungodly speed (150mph?) in probably something like 3 seconds. Wow. That car has a lot more grip than I thought. Also, the drivetrain... wow.
