Anyone watch "Motorweek" on "HDT" have a question about what I saw.

They tested the NEW 2012 Nissan GTR 3.8L V6 twin turbo... 500+hp 400+tq. is it possible to just put 2 turbos (and what ones if so) and produce over 500 HP in my 3.8L? theoretically shouldn't the engines be similar?

ahh grasshopper you have much to learn, the displacement is the only thing they share, just as a 5.0 in a Ferrari is not a 302/Ford
That Nissan engine is so much better, efficient, not to mention the turbos and electronics used are basically Formula 1 inspired
Not that you couldn't build a 3.8 twin turbo V6 ford motor to make 500 hp, but it would take an oilwell of cash/mods to do it.

he didnt even mention the number of cylinders.. it was just an example.. it doesnt matter how many cylinders you have just how much air (and fuel) you can cram into the cylinders and how quickly you can move it in and out.. so really hypothetically, you can get any displacement size to have mostly any amount of power

you should try to learn something before posting stupidity...the new 458 does, the new California and many others have as well, such as the 308, the Mondial and the F430

it isn't rude...you're too young to even know that grasshopper was the student name in the old series "Kung Fu" and to lash out at someone trying to teach you something shows your immaturity...try to grow up a little today and take some of this "lecture" to heart before you really embarass yourself in front of your friends or family.

Yes, you can TT a 3.8L. TMA used to make kits.
Yes, you can make 500hp+ from them (even with a single turbo).
No, it won't be legal in California.
No, the engines are massively different. You are basically comparing a WWII P51 fighter to the space shuttle. That's how much of a gap there is.
A lot of Ferrari's are V8s.

I understand, but like the 2 sifferences in cars, there is for example, the said p-51 vs the shuttle, the mustang funny enough (P-51 Mustangs) are designed for dogfights and the shuttle si for straight line speed... I dare you to put guns on both cars and say the gtr will win. I have seen things mustangs and P-51s stunt alike that a GTR could never do... RWD IMO can do things an AWD cant is what I'm saying... and simply put I think I'll just PM you Redlyr b4 I post so I don't get rude people like "Master Sensei" here

You missed the point entirely...

I was referring to the engine technology. Not to their handling traits.
