I know what you’re thinking, but this car isn’t fake, it’s real 🙂 The owner, Takuro wanted to build a car with four turbos, and voila – here it is! Coming from the guy who intended to turn a Pontiac Fiero-based Ferrari F40 replica into an RB26-powered drift car, this was not a joke.

Quad turbo 2JZ – Caroline Racing’s Nissan Silvia S14!

This level of craziness might be a bit too much for the world to handle just yet. But we think this quad-turbo S14 Silvia might just be insane enough for the time being. Let’s get one thing out of the way first. Because we’re sure there are a lot of technically-minded people who are reading this to see how it works. This is not really a “quad turbo” setup like on a Veyron, although it does sound cool to call it that in the post’s title.

It’s a custom compound turbo setup that works in a similar way to that used on diesel engines. It’s got two turbos of different sizes working together to create the kind of boost levels and engine responsiveness that couldn’t normally be achieved with just huge turbos.

The thing on the right is a supplemental radiator that is plumbed into the heater core lines, since the car has no HVAC system. Despite being a bit ugly, Takuro says it works quite well. All those snails need to be supplied with exhaust gas. Therefore Takuro fabricated a complicated exhaust manifold where the front three cylinders feed one TD-06/T88 compound pair. Whilst the rear three feed the other pair. Each turbo has its own individual external waste gate which is used to control the staging of the turbo boost.
