Click above for high-res gallery of this TT Gallardo

Jason Heffner is in the business of building fast cars. We're talking about quadruple digit horsepower, spinning the tires at 100 mph and pulling-away-from-a-Bugatti-Veyron fast cars. You might remember watching a Heffner-powered twin-turbo Ford GT that could hit 222 mph in the standing mile. His latest project is this twin-turbo Lamborghini that's putting down 930 horsepower and 762 lb-ft torque at the wheels. This particular owner also wanted to cut some weight, and added a carbon fiber deck lid and rear diffuser, race seats, and lightweight wheels. Follow the jump to see the extensive upgrade list, or check out the photos below.

      That is just retarded...

      With mainstream manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz expressing their desires to pull-out of the ever-increasing 'horsepower wars', it's reassuring to see the likes of Heffner, edo Competition etc. and other aftermarket tuners continue to do battle.

      Assuming the owner is male, if weight reduction is important leaving the girlfriend home will save something like 105 pounds, not to mention the babe's purse. That saves another 20+ pounds. Better yet, leave the car at home unless you have track experience and have a clue how to keep the car away from bridge abutments and light poles. Love the car, though.......

      Turbo... turbo... turbo... LAG!
        • 6 Years Ago
        I thought I posted this already....

        Didn't you look at the dyno graph? Car makes almost NO power below 4000RPM, then spikes.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh. THERE it is.

        Aaaaauuuuuutttooooo Blllloooooooooggggg...

        fix your commenting thingy!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Did you guys even LOOK a the dyno sheet? This thing makes, like, no power until 4000 RPM.
        Then big ol' spikey.

        WHEE!
        • 6 Years Ago
        With a twin turbo setup that lag should be minimal at worst. This is not like a super huge turbo civic my friend... You've got a big engine feeding 2 turbos, which means better spool and faster power. Not to mention you're probably getting ~500 HP w/o the turbos spooled anyways, and thats plenty to pin you before the turbo kickes in and completely smashes you into your seat.
        • 6 Years Ago
        As yh said, you aren't going to get much lag at all with this setup. Go and watch the videos of the previous TT Gallardos that he has done, and you will see for yourself.

        It really is time someone gave treatment like this to the Murcie. Doug Levin are the only ones to have built one, with "only" 800hp...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Shouldn't that be: lag ...... lag ...... lag ...... TURBO!!!!
        • 6 Years Ago
        It's almost unbelievable, but according to that graph, below ~3900 RPM the engine appears to be making less than 100 hp. It could be that the high rated dyno is just not sensitive enough that low down though.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Doug Levin Motorsports has done a twin turbo murci. I think I read in car and driver or some mag like that that heffner was working on a quad turbo one.

      That wing kills the lines of that car.

      It's not the most tasteless ever, but I must remember to check the "rear wing delete" option when ordering.
      • 6 Years Ago
      damn that is sick
      • 6 Years Ago
      And thats just a preliminary dyno!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Thats pretty bad-ass but I can't imagine the Gallardo was designed with cooling so far in excess of its needs that it could support this much heat for an extended period. I didn't notice any radiator upgrades in the spec sheet either, just the intercoolers for the charge air. Nonetheless thats a beautiful installation.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Mid-engined layout = easy to overheat. I too, doubt they have considered this.
      • 6 Years Ago
      But can it beat a ZR-1?

      Nevermind.....the ZR-1's better.
      My uncles neighbours brothers 2nd cousins friend has a ZR-1 and it could totally smoke this thing.
      Yuh Huh it could.......for realz.

      Heffner is definitely close to the top of engine builders in the U.S. for cars like this. His everyday driver Viper is 1700hp I do believe and he has made quite a company by producing 1000hp+ Vipers like they were Civics. Between him and Nelson Racing Engines it's hard to say who is more over the top, because they are both great builders.

      NiiiCE!!

      Reserve style.
