i dont think that time is right. because a mclaren slr goes 30-50 in 2.1sec and 50-70 in 2.3sec. which is the fastest highway passing car car and driver has ever tested.

Interesting.
The intercooler is too small, an air-water unit would probobly be better.

You have more room to work under the hood.

If I were the owner of that car I would make sure it had the best deer wistles on the market. One fenter bender and there goes prolly $5000+ of custom work.

air to air is better for daily use. But if you are doing track events, I would agree, air to water would be better.

Unless it is "water" meaning refrigerant.

Assuming it can go from 0-30 in 2 sec, those times are not fast at all.....30 to 70 in 4.4 sec.

Not necessarily. The guy probably normally drives a Yugo.

Just check out our 30-to-50 and 50-to-70 times, which at 1.7 and 2.4 seconds are the best pair of top-gear acceleration times we've ever recorded for a production car.
