It is very impressive, but I wish Jason would stop calling it an LT5! It is an LT4 with a bigger blower...

if you are interested by the R&D you can check out Cleatus Macfarlane latest Texas Speed 427 twin turbo laying down 1280 while spinning the tires on the dyno...that's around 1400+ at the motor...pretty sick too
