Default Turbo on ZZP

I was looking at this turbo setup on ZZP.
http://www.zzperformance.com/grand_p...=411&catid=109
I think it'* save to say it'* pretty wicked and I've decided I'm going to work my *** off all summer and get it
Are they serious when they say expected times can be 10 seconds? (In my case, in conjuction with a twin-charged setup)

I think you have some "pre-modding" to do before installing that.....

Pretty sweet lookin' though

Get to working, save a LOT. That might make a GTP run 10'* but a SSEi is almost always going to run slower times than an identically modded GTP so don't count on 10'* by any means or someone would have done it by now. seriously, if that'* what you want go for it. Like Wren said though you're going to need a pretty hardcore trans built and without some tuning you'll probably blow up an engine or two. Get to researching if your serious about this.

Yeah I've already started reasearching it. It'* next to impossible to find stuff on twin-charging though but maybe I can find something at a book store or something..
As for saving, consider it started. Except for the odd thing or two for Shadowfax

I looked pretty seriously at twin charging, it'* way better/easier to just straight up turbocharge.

Yeah but then you can't say that you're twincharged.
Sure they're both immensely powerful, but it'* bragging rights as well.

I've actually been considering trying out that set-up, but as a turbo-only install.
World'* only turbo Park Avenue has a ring to it, doesn't it?
