How is it that this thing strapped on two superchargers and added 375 horses, but not an ounce of torque? Also, I love the giant hood scoop, but then, my favorite car is the Boss 429 'Stang soo...

Because the superchargers use torque for work, that's why the boost at low RPM, not at high RPM, like turbos, that use horspower (use the gases from the exhaust).

3. #3
Stop being stupid. Horsepower is a mathematical calculation based on torque.

this has to be some of dumbest shit i have seen in a while. now exhaust gas = hp and superchargers dont make power at high rpm? super chargers produce boost by compressing air spun by a turbine. that turbine is spun indirectly by the crankshaft through a belt. this physical connection between the engine and the turbine means that the supercharger produces more boost and consequently more power at higher rpm.

Acceleration is a mathematical calculation based on position.
P''(t)=a(t)

6. #6
It is actually theoretically possible to lower peak torque and yet raise peak power. In this case, though, it's just incorrect info.

7. #7
It would only have to be turning a little over 9,000 RPMs.

8. #8
I didn't say not... your point is?

9. #9
"now exhaust gas = hp and superchargers dont make power at high rpm?" Where did I exactly say that?

It's funny when dumb people don't understand what others say.

Guys, let's not be hostile. This just has to be yet another typo by supercars.net.

11. #11
It's funny when retards won't own up to being retarded.

12. #12
Right, you must know it.

You would surprise...

I'm out.

Ya te quisiera ver tan siquiera intentando hablar espaÃ±ol, seguro eres un gringo desgraciado que cree que es el centro del mundo y no se preocupa por aprender otros idiomas y exige que los extranjeros sÃ­ hablen el inglÃ©s al 100 por ciento, por eso el mundo se estÃ¡ yendo al hoyo. Una profecÃ­a maya dice que en el quinto sol, en unos aÃ±os, los mares aumentarÃ¡n y dos terceras partes de la tierra emergida quedarÃ¡n bajo el agua, de la tercera parte restante, la mitad serÃ¡ MÃ©xico... asÃ­ que si es cierta esa profecÃ­a (ojalÃ¡ lo fuera), deberÃ­an tal vez ser un poco mÃ¡s considerados. Gracias por su atenciÃ³n.

23. #23
I'll 2nd that

Ok, people, you obviously haven't noticed that the speed, torque and 0-60 times are from the standard '67 Cobra 427?
