    quoted from another web forum.....

    I kno its been dead a while but for others who stumble on it, this car is not by any means meant to run "just straight lines", it is a "pro-touring" machine. It dominates in all aspects of racing.
    Heres the link to this unreal ride:

    1200hp Twin Whipple Charged Vette
    TURN THE VOLUME WAY UP for this one!!
    .......and maybe some pics:

    Lateral-g.net :: 1,200hp Twin Whipple 512 CID Merlin C3

    Just need to come up with a water/air heat exhanger, some plumbing, and circulating pump for the intercooler and the marine setup should work fine in a car.
