    Two of them strapped to a mustang, producing a mild 3,500hp. 5 sec quarters!

    That's an iPhone 5 not a 4, next to it ;) Inlet looks larger on the first one for sure but the precision is an anti surge housing. Anyway, it wasn't meant to be a willy waving competition. 3,500hp seems to be pretty epic though :) Wonder what two of the first one would do. Precision seemed to be the turbo of choice by many of the time attack folk.
