How do you know this?
One could say that when changing OEM anything on any car.

Two places this car could take you. With my addictive personality it would not take long either.

Jail.
Hospital or worse.

And in just a few seconds, might I add.

That's the problem with owning something like this.


Having said that, I want one. *evil grin.*

Just my opinion. With a significant power boost like that, I feel it would be spinning its tires everywhere. With turbos that huge, I would imagine lag. You're right, I haven't driven it, so I can't say anything for certain. But it will certainly not have the throttle response it once did with all that turbo lag. I feel what made Ferrari special was their amazing NA engines, I feel like twin turbos undermine that. Just my opinion like I said though.
