Default another strange gm engine build

it sucks being stuck at home with a abscessed tooth, the antibiotics my dentist put me on 3 weeks ago didn't work so here I am in pain. Had to go to family doctor for better stuff, hopefully I see results in the next couple of days. Dentist won't see me for another week.

but I'm amazed at the bizarre "I'm building this because I can." projects I stumble upon while searching the net.

It appears the project was put on hold at the beginning of the year, and it used tbird m90s, but all I can say wow.

I remember seeing that a while back. Very impressive. Bet it sounds sick. The problem I see is this. A lot of added weight, also, will 2 superchargers deliver more boost then one good one? I had a idea a bit like that rolling around in my head. But I was thinking about putting them side by side on top on a large custom LIM. With lots and lots of cooling, it might work.

I see weight as a huge issue as well as balance. The car will be heavy in the front and the front wheel axis. Probably run like a raped ape in a straight away, but will roll over like whipped dog in a turn.
