Default boosted Northstar

Well, someone finally turbo charged a northstar engine. Here'* the results. Definately would give a highly modded SSEi a challenge I'd guess.

35-70 in 2.6 seconds.

Thats proper!

Could use a better sounding exhaust though.

I hope they never get hit in the front end.

Cool though.

Exhaust is seriously muffled going thru the Turbo.
Would never be insurably street legal without a front bumper but a very cool set-up fitting it where they did.

Looks realy quick to me. Put a vent in the bumper for the intercooler and a nicer exhaust and your done.


**********PUBLIC NOTICE***************

I will let my GXP be the Guinea pig for the next turbo project...
