I remember reading about the development of this beast a year or so ago, and the only pictures were the plumbing shots on page two of this Hot Rod article. Someone was coo-coo enough to place eight turbos on an LS1 Chevy V-8, and tied it together with a 57 Chevy body. Did the experiment work? All eight turbos fed for a total of 730 hp and 710-lb/ft of torque on the engine dyno. The drawback is that the plumbing required for eight turbos weighs close to 300 pounds, all at the nose of the car. This monster exercise is well worth the read.
