y do people put this car down 4 having quad turbo?

Discussion in '1995 Ford GT90 Concept' started by 61caddy, Nov 2, 2003.

  1. i dont get it: people are putting this car down saying that its not technologically advanced because it has 4 turbos from which it acquires its eficiency. what makes even less sense; people compare this car to the cadillac cien despite the fact that the cien has about 100 more cubic inches & 20 less hp/liter. if the car has that kind of efficiency, i wouldnt worry about how it gets it as long as its there.

    Because it uses a 6.0 litre engine (which should be capable of the same power NA with the right engineering), WITH 4 turbos to get 720hp, WEAK.

    Tuners not always add more turbo's to get more power. Some add another turbo to decrease turbo-lag. One single turbo uses one small rotor to compress air. If you want to create more boost you can let the rotor spin faster, or put in a bigger rotor. Both of these methods have disadvantages. If the rotor spins faster, more heat is produced. A bigger rotor takes longer to get up to speed (that's the reason why there is turbo-lag).
    Now if you put in another turbo, you can keep them both (or in this case four) small and they won't have to spin that fast to create the same boost as a single turbo. That might be the reason why The GT90 has 4 turbo's.

    They are 4 small turbos instead of one or two big ones. With 4 small turbos to get a proper launch the car doesn't need a higher rpm to overcome lag. Take the Lotus Esprite for example. It has one big turbo, but horrible lag. Drivers of the Esprite need a higher rpm to utilize all of the power from the one turbo. Multiple turbos decrease this need.

    Uh, excpet this car is ugly ,so ,um , no one cares!

    Seriously, you don't make any sense. What are you saying?

    guy's rite, it is kinda ugly and should have more HP

    The Cien is also a much better car than this, hands down.

    so ur saying the 6.0 liter engines should be making 720 hp n/a ????? yeah ok BULLSHIT find me a 6.0 liter n/a car making 720 horsepower

    With the RIGHT engineering, there are LOTS of N/A racing cars making that much power from even smaller engines, being a concept they should have engineered this the same, then perhaps they would have avoided the heat problem.

    BTW, that would only be 120 bhp/litre, even Ford is capable of that.
